Jeff Goldblum as Dracula in a 1996 Goosebumps computer game is completely unnerving

In the 1996 children's PC game Goosebumps: Escape from Horrorland, Jeff Goldblum played an inappropriately sultry Lord of the Vampires. Watch as the one and only Brundlefly seduces the game's pre-teen protagonist with a sensual dance.

How did Goldblum get wrapped up in these shenanigans? In this making-of featurette, Steven Spielberg, a producer on the project (and Goldblum's director in Jurassic Park), is seen extolling the wonders of R.L. Stine's Goosebumps books (whatever, I was a Christopher Pike fan myself). Also, rewind that YouTube video to see Isabella Rossellini mugging it up as "Lady Cadaver." Neither of these scenes would be entirely out of place in Blue Velvet.

Looks like someone needed a paycheck.

How many Goosebumps books were written, in the end? I preferred the Fear Street series, myself. Well, that and Stephen King, but hey... slim pickins.
