Love at First Bite is a lighthearted comedy that follows the story of Dracula, who arrives in New York City in search of Cindy Sondheim, a fashion model who's the reincarnation of his lost love. The film boasts an all-star cast with George Hamilton playing the role of Count Dracula, while Susan Saint James portrays Cindy, the object of Dracula's affection. Alongside them is Richard Benjamin as Dr. Jeffrey Rosenberg, Cindy's psychiatrist and lover, who finds himself caught up in the supernatural events that surround Cindy and Dracula.

The movie starts with Dracula being forced to leave his home in Transylvania due to the communist takeover of the country. He travels to New York City, where he meets Cindy, who's a top model and TV personality. Dracula becomes obsessed with her, convinced that she's his long-lost love from centuries ago. However, Cindy is skeptical of Dracula's claims and dismisses his advances, causing Dracula to become even more determined to win her over.

Dr. Rosenberg, on the other hand, has problems of his own. He's been treating Cindy for her supposed delusions of being a vampire and is worried about her increasing fascination with Dracula. As he tries to convince her that Dracula is just a delusion, he also finds himself becoming increasingly attracted to her. Meanwhile, Dracula enrolls in night classes to learn more about modern-day customs and the English language, which leads to wacky and hilarious scenes.

As the movie progresses, Dracula's attempts to win over Cindy become more and more desperate, and he enlists the help of his faithful servant, Renfield, who's played by Arte Johnson. Renfield helps Dracula by using his powers to hypnotize Cindy and make her more receptive to his advances. However, this also leads to disastrous consequences, and Rosenberg is left to pick up the pieces.

The film's climax takes place at a charity ball where Cindy is modeling. Dracula sees this as a perfect opportunity to sweep Cindy off her feet and win her love once and for all. However, a series of mishaps ensue, causing chaos at the ball as Dracula's true identity is revealed. In the end, true love prevails, and Dracula must make a difficult decision between his love for Cindy and his identity as a vampire.

Love at First Bite is a fun and entertaining film that is sure to delight audiences. The comedic performances of George Hamilton, Susan Saint James, and Richard Benjamin are top-notch, and the film's witty dialogue and playful tone make it a joy to watch. The movie is a perfect blend of horror, romance, and comedy, and will keep viewers engaged from start to finish. Whether you're a fan of vampire movies or just looking for a fun and entertaining film, Love at First Bite is a must-see.
