Storyline

Translation of the above: Karmina, a young vampire (only 140 years old) flees her Translylvanian castle where she must marry the horrible Vlad to please her father, the mean Baron, and her mother, the eccentric Baronness. Karmina finds refuge in Quebec at the home of her aunt Esméralda, an older vampire who lives among humans thanks to a potion that temporarily transforms a vampire into one of them. Under the effect of the potion, Karmina falls in love with Phillipe, a charming church organist. But Vlad, the Baron and the Baronness soon show up in pursuit of her and turn a poor customs officer, Ghislain Chabot, into a vampire to aid them in retrieving her. Esméralda must become the great vampire of yesteryear to fly to the aid of the lovers. Written by Anonymous

fabulous!
26 March 2003 | by See all my reviews

this is one of my family's all-time favourites: the skewing of the costumes to the 80s ("big hair"; satin brocade; british-style punks; lounge-lizard, disco-ball pick-up lines; etc) took the edge off what could have been a really gory movie. the jokes are, at times, a bit lame but, on the whole, are funny -- sometimes even excruciatingly hilarious. (tip: pay close attention to the "transylvanian" spoken at the beginning and compare it to what's being said in the subtitles). the music is good, although the plot's a bit... well...

okay, the plot is *very* predictable -- but that's okay! seriously! everyone's having so much fun acting in the movie and we had so much fun watching it, that not having to wait in suspense for something out-of-the-blue and amazingly unique to happen was refreshing. it really can be nice to just sit back and enjoy a straight-forward romantic-comedy-with-a-twist. (tip: you'll love the scene where the cop tries to get sleazy with Our Heroine after the potion's worn off!)
