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

The painting of the Countess was modeled after "Madonna," a 19th century painting by Norwegian expressionist Edvard Munch. The original plan was that the seedy side of Hollywood would be depicted, with a production design patterned after Munch's art, but director Howard Storm instead opted to focus on the 1980s neon glow of Hollywood.

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 »
Could one of these lady vampires actually bite a guy? You know, like a teenage guy?
Well how old would he be?
Well I seriously doubt it. You see the female vampire needs the blood of a virgin, and an 18-year-old boy would hardly be a virgin, now would he?
Well just hypothetically, what if he was a virgin?
Well then I think he has a lot bigger problems to worry about than female vampires.

Once Bitten is a mediocre movie that allows Carrey to shine.
Once Bitten, a comedy/vampire adventure that would later provide the grounds for Buffy, is little more than a field for Carrey to display his talents. I bought the video at a music store for two dollars, and it was worth that amount. Anymore, and I might have been ripped off. The movie, based on the 80's coming-of-age theme, sex, had very trite writing. Most of the acting, with the exceptions of Carrey and Little, seemed forced and scripted. The most pleasure I derived from watching this flick, however, was the chance to see Carrey before all the money and fame got to him.
