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

In the revised 1989 edition of "The Celluloid Closet," author Vito Russo lambasted screenwriter David Hines for the inclusion of a stereotypical gay butler and the homophobic school shower scene. Ironically, the shower scene was based on a personal experience of co-writer Jeffrey Hause, and the gay butler was conceived by Jonathan Roberts, who was hired by the director to rewrite Hause's and Hines' script.

In the costume party/dance scene, when Robin and Countess are having a dance fight over Mark, the camera is zooming in on the dance, to the very left of the screen you can see the lens hood of a second camera zooming in. 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!

Jim Carrey is hilarious and this is just the beginning of the stars career. It's plot is nothing special and the acting is alright but Jim makes this movie. You will need to see this movie if you are a fan of Jim's. This is a great film and definitely classic for 80's film. Check this film out soon. It is a winner.
