Dracula: Dead and Loving It

Trivia: For the scene in which Jonathan drives a stake into Lucy's heart, Steven Weber's reactions to getting doused in blood are real. For this particular sequence, Mel Brooks did not tell him what was going to happen.

Trivia: In the scene where Renfield arrives in the Transylvanian village, the archway which the carriage passes under is the same as in the film 'Young Frankenstein' which was also made by Mel Brooks. The only difference is the ivy covering the archway and the staircase.

Trivia: In one scene, Van Helsing asks Dr. Seward if he has the book "Nosferatu." The film Nosferatu was the first adaptation of the Dracula novel.

Trivia: In the scene where Renfield arrives at Dracula's castle, it appears that the castle is identical to the castle in 'Young Frankenstein' which is also made by Mel Brooks.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Renfield is locked up in the sanitarium cell, the camera first zooms in to the horizontal bars on his window. Some shots later, the camera shows the guard looking under the doorflap, and since the door is opposite the window, the shadow of the bars fall on it. The bars have suddenly changed to a criss-cross pattern.

Question: What does "foushta" mean?

Answer: As there is no reference anywhere on the Internet as to this word's definition, it would appear to be a made-up expression for the movie.
