Dracula's Widow (1988)

Wow, a movie about Dracula's window?  Why would he have a window? They let in light so that's not such a great idea.  Yup, misread the title on this one and was slightly disappointed when I realized it was his widow.

A wax museum gets a delivery with an extra crate. Owner Raymond decides to keep it even though he know it's not his and has no idea what's in it. I guess he figured he'd get some free antiques.  Well he certainly did since the crate holds Count Dracula's widow, Vanessa. Oddly enough, she's well versed in modern fashion, wears a smart little business suit, and has a business woman's ugly haircut.

Vanessa takes control of Raymond since she needs someone to do her bidding.  His girlfriend isn't too happy with his odd behavior.

It all boils down to a not so interesting plot where Vanessa wants revenge on Van Helsings grandson, and a hard boiled detective is trying to figure out what the hell is going on with a new rash of murders in town. Also Raymond is a little late for the New Romantic movement with his poncey hair and accent.
