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.

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 »
Hi. I'm Russ, and I'm a Sagittarius. I enjoy surfing, candlelit dinners, and Tolstoi. Listen: I'm a mature person and you're a mature person, so why don't we just skip all the bullshit, get rid of our inhibitions, and DO what we really wanna DO?

This is a pretty bad 80's teen sex comedy with a vampire slant. It s main attraction is an early appearance by Jim Carrey before he became a big star. Unfortunately the filmmakers seem unwilling to take advantage of his comic talents, forcing him to play it straight most of the time What makes this even worse are the rich opportunities for him to exploit his particular brand of silliness in a movie with this premise I mean, Jim Carrey turning into a vampire that has potential., but for the most part, that potential is untapped.
However there are a few places where Carrey is allowed to showcase his comic abilities, and his talent is apparent Particularly in a VERY ridiculous dance scene that has to rank right up there as one of the silliest (or stupidest) dance scenes I have ever encountered. This sequence is so crazy that I would almost recommend the movie based purely on the dance scene.
The rest of the movie is mostly bland and not so enjoyable Lauren Hutton is a looker, but her part is pretty weak here. Carrey's two nerdy friends are supposed to provide most of the comic relief, but they aren't very funny. The story moves along very predictably and there is little or no urgency. It's not the kind of movie that makes you want to turn off the TV, but it's pretty forgettable.
Still . It does have the dance scene, and there is a certain 80's nostalgia factor. It's worth watching if you catch it on TV and you have some time to kill.
