Edward Van Sloan as George Costanza
Lupita Tovar as Elaine Benes
David Manners as Kramer
Charles K. Gerrard and Joan Standing as Mr. and Mrs. Renfield
And.....Carlos Villarias as "The Soup Nazi!"
OK, despite a previous post, in which I went along with changing Carlos Villarias to the Kramer character, I've switched him back to "The Soup Nazi," and have Pablo Alvarez Rubio (Oddly enough, the Spanish Renfield!) as Kramer, instead of David Manners!

But the film lets it go. No character mentions the death of the maid. Is she seen again out on the lawn with Renfield's caretaker as he shoots at the bat?

The beauty of having two different commentary tracks, is that we get to choose, and I do find David J. Skal's to be the more informative of the two.
As an aside, I do remember enjoying DRACULA, DEAD AND LOVING IT (1995), as I've always enjoyed Leslie Nielsen's comic turns, and in my opinion, Peter MacNichol's Renfield is absolutely hilarious!

He addresses the long-standing myth that there is a flub in the set decoration, a flag left on a light in the background. He summarizes that anyone who believes that it is a mistake "shows an incredible ignorance of the filmmaking process." At that moment, I realized he was talking to YOU and ME. He isn't just critical of filmmakers; he has venom for other fans. You know the guy I'm talking about: You're at a party, someone starts discussing a film they love, and one guy makes that sound, that disgruntled noise that means he's upset to be around such classless dummies. (I WAS this guy in high school; I stopped in college.)
