Obie Adams is doing his best to hide from his English teacher, Miss Dale, who is involved with directing an intense production of ’Dracula'. Once again, he’s lost his homework, and if Obie doesn’t pass this year’s English class, it’s no diploma for our likable, but weird, hero. Even worse, it could mean (gasp!) summer school! Obie doesn’t dare admit to losing it — he’s already used that excuse once too often. So instead, he concocts a wild yarn involving the peculiar Mortimer Crank and his spooky housekeeper, Mrs. Dank. With weirdo's popping in and out of the dark and stormy night, none of it makes much sense. Except to Obie, who has the entire ’Dracula’ cast engrossed in his tall tale. Maybe Obie really is telling the truth. The result is a spectacular comic romp.
