Storyline

Young student finds himself being transformed to a vampire after a night with a quite attractive female vampire. First, he does not quite believe it himself, but with the help of a 300 year old teacher and the handbook "vampirism - a guide to an alternative lifestyle", he finds out that blood does not taste as bad as he expected. Of course, he does not bite women, as a good guy he sticks to pig blood which is offered by the local butcher as a special offer for vampires. Trouble rises when a vampire hunter tries to track him down with wooden sticks and silver bullets... Written by Hanno Mueller <mueller@kogs.informatik.uni-hamburg.de>

very entertaining
3 September 2003 | by bananaslugSee all my reviews

I watched this movie last night on HBO family and thought it was a really good movie. I love campy vampire flicks and ill just add this to the long list of vampire movies that i would watch again and again.

(80's flicks are the best ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
