A news reporter named Jacob Snick (Andrew Garfield) discovers an enormous haunted house in Transylvania. Thinking it's an interesting place to tell a news story, Jacob decides to go inside and take tons of photos and video footage of this haunted house. However, when he goes up to the roof, he notices there is a clock, and every time it ticks, a mysterious vampire named Count von Count (Matt Vogel) counts the numbers up to what time it ticks to. When it is 12 o'clock, The Count releases a powerful spell throughout the castle to remove intruders, but Jacob doesn't know anything about this. He goes outside and warns everybody about the haunted house, but of course nobody believes him. Then he takes them to the haunted house to prove them all wrong, and sure enough, The Count comes out and tries to put a powerful spell on them to get them addicted to counting. Now Jacob, with the help of his girlfriend Vanessa Clark (Lady Gaga) have to restore orders to the castle and make everything go back to normal.

The Count is rated PG for scary images and action, rude humor, thematic elements and some peril.
- Some scenes start off with darkness and then a crash of thunder.
- The entire movie is about The Count reading numbers off a clock, and then spilling a magical potion to clear the castle of intruders, which can be scary to most little kids.
- The beginning is probably the scariest scene in the entire movie, as it is a legitimately frightening setup for The Count.
- The Count's and the castle's appearance, as well as the thunder can scare small children.
- Other than that, it's not that scary or violent, therefore children 7 & up can handle the intensity.
- PG level: "stupid", "shut up", "crap", "jerk", "idiot", "abomination", "butt", etc.
- Language isn't a problem, since most of it is stuff heard in elementary school hallways.
Sexuality & Nudity
- Jacob and Vanessa kiss in two scenes.
- Mrs. Count's outfit is a bit suggestive.
- Overall, nothing really that bad.
Drugs & Smoking
- The Count makes a magical potion that wipes out all intruders in the castle.
- Reference to The Count being high on "number cigs"..
