This is the movie that was supposed to make Jim Carrey a star--in 1985, no less. Perhaps it's no wonder that it took him until the 1990s (and In Living Color): this bloodless vampire comedy almost sank his movie career bef...  more »

Exciting Vampire movie!
John Lindsey | Socorro, New Mexico USA. | 04/16/2010
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Mark (Jim Carrey) is your typical 18 year old who is near graduation as he has a sweet girlfriend Robin (Karen Kopins) as he's a virgin on the verge of trying to get laid. One night in Hollywood as he and his two friends Jamie and Russ (Thomas Ballatore and Skip Lackey) go out searching for fish, they stumble into a private sleaze bar where a gorgeous 200 year old vampiress named Countess (Lauren Hutton) who has an efeminte butler named Sebastian (Clevon Little) seeks out Mark for she must have a virgin to remain beautiful for eternity. But as she seduces Mark she bites him where it doesn't tan in the sun turning him into a semi-vampire where he craves blood, scares young boys and even has dreams about Countess as it seems to puzzle his friends and girlfriend.

Exciting and mildly funny teen sex horror comedy that marked Jim Carrey's debut on the big screen back in 1985. The film offers some quality laughs like the hilarious yet homoerotic shower room scene where Jamie and Russ have to check where Mark is bitten as everyone freaks out which made me laugh out loud and the acting isn't too bad. It's really a movie about virginity and learning about what true love can be, i highly recommend this movie to anyone who liked "Fright Night 1 & 2", "Vamp" and "The Lost Boys".

The DVD offers a nice look with widescreen and fullscreen versions with only one extra which is the teaser trailer, the film is still great fun."
