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

By the time the film was released, writer Jeffrey Hause had blown through his initial earnings and had to take a job as a video store clerk. One day an oblivious customer remarked of the film, "Whoever wrote this shouldn't be working in Hollywood," and an incensed Hause retorted, "YOU GOT YOUR WISH!" See more »
In the Laundromat scene when Jamie and Russ are talking you can't see outside through the glass but you can see the ceiling lights reflected in the glass (As in darkness/nighttime). Although it was daylight when they left Mark to try to pick up chicks in the previous scene. See more »
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.
