Thomas F. Wilson,
The Countess has a problem. She is a 400 year old vampire who will cease to look young unless she is able to feed on a virgin three times before the upcoming Halloween, a week away. She sends Sebastian, her servant and all of her lesser vampires out to find one. Finding a virgin is difficult in 1980s Los Angeles. Mark has a problem. He wants to 'do it' with Robin in the worst way, but she wants to wait. Jamie and Russ, Mark's goofy friends convince him to go to a Hollywood pick up spot where Mark meets the Countess, on the prowl. Robin's not going to understand this. Written by

By the time the film was released, writer Jeffrey Hause had blown through his initial earnings and had to take a job as a video store clerk. One day an oblivious customer remarked of the film, "Whoever wrote this shouldn't be working in Hollywood," and an incensed Hause retorted, "YOU GOT YOUR WISH!" See more »
The Countess' (Lauren Hutton) dress changes from a shoulderless one when she leaves the club with Mark (Jim Carrey) in her limo, to a short-sleeved dress upon exiting the limo and removing her jacket at home. See more »
What was that scene in the shower all about?
That's the thanks I get for trying to help out a friend?
Oh you're a big help, thanks a lot. Did it ever occur to you guys that maybe you could've asked me?
Oh my God!
She told us to look!
I knew it! I knew it, we enjoyed it!
Would you shut up? Just shut up!
No that's it! We're homos! We're rump-rangers!

A vampire Countess (Lauren Hutton) needs to drink the blood of a virgin in order to keep her eternal beauty. It seems that all is hopeless, until she bumps into Mark Kendall (Jim Carrey).
While "Fright Night" is often considered a modern classic by horror fans, this film -- which came out around the same time -- is probably not as well known. And why not? The humor is decent and a young Jim Carrey (with exquisite dance scene) makes this historically important in some small way.
I should say something about the film's treatment of homosexuality. However, I am unsure of what to write. The film seems to have some anti-gay bias (especially with the shower scene), but maybe that is a misunderstanding. Indeed, it might just be presenting what might have been a realistic response from teenage boys in the 1980s...
