Rockula is about a male vampire who lost his lady love centuries ago. She was killed by a pirate with a rhinestone peg leg, wielding a large ham bone. Our hero, the vampire, did nothing to save her. So he is now cursed to watch her be born again in another life, and then watch her die, strangely enough by a pirate with a rhinestone peg leg, wielding you-know-what. Now, in 1990, he has, he suspects, his last chance to try to save her instead of watching get clubbed over and over again down through the years. Oh, and he becomes a rock star in the process.

I stumbled on this one late night when I couldn't sleep. What a riot! Toni Basil plays the gun-toting mother of a slightly nerdy young vampire; Thomas Dolby is the media-besotted director of a funeral parlor, and Dean Cameron is the teen himself. This bizarre comedy includes numerous asides to the camera and a peg-legged guy with an enormous ham bone. How can you resist?
