Plot: Gotham City is terrorized not only by recent escapees Joker and Penguin, but by the original creature of the night, Dracula! Can Batman stop the ruthless vampire before he turns everyone in the city, including The Caped Crusader, Joker and Penguin, into his mindless minions?

My rating: 6.5/10

Will I watch it again? No.

Not a bad picture.  It's pretty neat the idea of throwing Dracula into the Batman mix.  I like having bat against bat.  The story plays out nicely and it was a nice touch including the Penguin and the Joker.  I didn't care for the score's inclusion of the electric guitar but that's a minor nitpick I suppose.  That's about it, really.  It's no classic but if animated Batman is your bag, you'll probably dig it.
