Very overlooked, but awesome vampire comedy from the 80's
My Best Friend Is A Vampire is a teen vampire comedy in the same vein as Once Bitten. I am a fan of both movies, but I prefer My Best Friend Is A Vampire to Once Bitten. Robert Sean Leonard is our likable lead Jeremy Cappello and when he is'nt attending class or at work, he is hanging out with his crazy buddy Ralph(Evan Mirand). However, a sordid little encounter with a hot, mysterious lady named Nora turns our average teenager Jeremy into a vampire. Enter Modoc(Rene Auberjonis) to show Jeremy the ropes of adjusting to his new life as a vampire and to warn him about obsessed Professor McCarthy(David Warner), a Van Helsing type of character, of which with his inept and goofy sidekick is determined to eradicate all vampires from the face of the Earth. Like all teenagers in 80's comedies, Jeremy is having girl troubles as well. His pursuit of Darla Blake(Cheryl Pollak) is off to a rough start as Darla, while she likes Jeremy she thinks he is a weirdo. While My Best Friend Is A Vampire is a much lower budgeted production than Once Bitten, it has a lot of original ideas and is really funny. This film is VERY, very 80's and a whole lot of campy fun. This leading role may not have made Robert Sean Leonard a breakout star, but he was likable enough and he and the rest of the supporting cast did an excellent job. I would not regard this as the best horror/comedy or the best 80'S movie, but if you are are fan of vampire movies and/or the cinema of the 1980's, My Best Friend Is A Vampire is a cool little film for you to check out.
