Storyline

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. Written by Shannon Quesnel <sa_quesnel@venus.cambrianc.on.ca>

Quality Cheese
2 December 2002 | by feXisSee all my reviews

If you've enjoyed other movies with Dean Cameron (the Ski Schools', Summer School, Men at Work), then this one will have you in stitches. You've got to love Thomas Dolby ("She Blinded Me With Science" singer) AND Tony Basil (of "Hey Mickey you're so fine..." fame) dating the movie and giving it an awesomely hilarious 80's tone.

In short, Rockula is thoroughly entertaining if you are a fan of 80's cheese.

This movie was made knowing it'd be cheesy, which is why it bugs me when people give it bad reviews. That's like giving a science fiction movie bad ratings because it stunk as a comedy. As a 'B' movie--what this movie was meant to be--there is no question this movie ranks up there with the best of 'em.
