  • An utterly amazing Batman animated film that, in my opinion, rivals Return of the Joker.

  • A great animated movie, made mediocre by the cliches

    • Although he believed in the existence of the swamp zombie, Solomon Grundy, it seemed Alfred was more of a skeptic when it came to vampires.

    • Tara Strong, the voice of Vicky, played the voice of Batgirl on Batman Gotham Knights, plays the voice of Raven on Teen Titans, and played the voice of Mercy Graves in Superman: Braniac Attacks.

    • Joker was the only person who seemed to retain an individual personality after being turned into a vampire (though he was still forced to serve Dracula).

    Trivia (4)

    • When Batman first found out about the vampires, his gloves were torn at his knuckles. However, when he zips to the train, his gloves are mended.

    • Dracula is wrongly believed to have lived in Hungary (Budapest is mentioned) when the legend is derived from a vicious Romanian warlord, Vlad Tepes or ‘Dracul’, who ruled Muntenia, the lower region of Romania. The name Dracula was derived from the nickname ‘Dracul’ which means "The Devil". This is the name that the Turks used to refer to Vlad.

    • When Batman cured vampire Joker by giving him his own blood which contained the antidote, vampire Joker kicked and screamed in agony. In contrast, when Batman injected the other vampires with the cure, they did not roll and scream on the ground like the Joker. Why? Since the Joker consumed the cure orally, it took longer for the cure to reach the bloodstream and cure him completely, thus the intensive pain. When the cure was injected through the blood stream, the cure didn’t have to wait to reach the blood; it was already in the bloodstream, thus it restored the civilians back to normal.

    • Vampires don't have reflections, but Joker's reflection can be seen on the glass vials in the blood bank. (Reply: Vampires do not produce a reflection. However, vampires can see their own image over a reflected surface. It is proven (throughout vampire folklore) that vampires can't stand their own reflection. We were able to see vampire Joker's image reflected on the glass vials in the blood bank because we experienced a first person view (POV). Vampire Joker may not have seen his own rover the vials, since his attention was focused on Batman. That's probably why vampire Joker could continue with "the hunt".)

    Allusions (6)

    • 'The Lost Ones' may be a reference to the 80's movie "Lost Boys" both referring to the gang of vampires lead by David (the Peter Pan reference of Lost Boys needing a mother) and for the victims of the vampire gang.

    • The movie may have been inspired by the Elseworlds story titled Batman & Dracula: Red Rain; where Batman encounters Dracula and becomes a vampire.

    • Joker: Got Ketchup? An altered version of the "Got Milk?" ads and commercials.

    • Bruce: (falls in a deep hole) The scene when young Bruce falls in a deep hole after his parents death, is the same as Batman Forever the movie, in which the exact thing happens.

    • Joker: Batsy, you complete me! This is taken from the famous line from the movie Jerry Maguire.
