I have loved this movie from the first time I saw it - while everyone else liked that one with Jim Carey in it, which I just thought was silly, I was watching this one (and "Rockula," which I hope will someday be put out in DVD format).

Jeremy and Ralph are best friends - but while Ralph apparently has no trouble asking out women, Jeremy is shy around the fairer gender, despite the fact that the beautiful cheerleader Candy has the hots for him. But Jeremy is strangely drawn to Darla Blake - a baritone sax player in the band and not the type of girl that usually leads to the sorts of dreams that Jeremy has been having about her.

Things start to get strange when Jeremy's dream about Darla is interrupted by a strange woman. Even weirder, the next day when out delivering groceries, Jeremy discovers this strange woman is the new delivery recipient on his grocery route. After her cat has scratched his finger, she first licks, then sucks on his finger and invites him back to her house that night at midnight ... I'm sure you can see where this is going. Needless to say, there is a crazed vampire killer with his bumbling assistant; a vampire "counselor" sent to help Jeremy adjust to his new life (played by the very talented Rene Aberjonois of "Deep Space Nine" fame) and, of course, a bevy of beautiful vampire women. It is also (as far as I can tell) the very first movie in which we see a very young Kathy Bates.

If you enjoy lighter vampire fare, this is definitely the movie for you. It is just a lot of fun, very 80s, great soundtrack. I hope you'll give this a chance, if you weren't already aware of it.

Combine Tiger Beat with Degrassi Junior High and add a dash of Bram Stoker and there you have it! A Neurotic Dallas teenager without the slightest hint of a southern accent being coached by Rene Auberjenois on how to be a member of the pack. Fabulously entertaining I love this movie. a great popcorn movie, fun fun fun!

OK so I'm not the worlds deepest thinker. I remembered this movie when it first came out. At the time it was a somewhat edgy little teen comedy that made fun of the gay coming out process in a very very cute way. I remember I was about the same age and had a major crush on the star. So I couldn't resist stepping back into the past and having a laugh.

I'd say if you have a spare couple of hours to burn with harmless fun buy this.

I recall watching this many years ago - my sister and I have been re-watching and collecting old stuff from our childhoods. Had toadd this to the list. This existed before Twilight and in my opinion, is better.

We all remember the 80's as a time of strange yet great times. Look no further than a classic 80's vampire comedy. See Robert Sean Leonard in his young days before House in what may be one of his best comedic roles.

An average teen in high school meets a beautiful older woman that wants to meet him in the evening. He goes for it, looking forward to a night of passion only to find himself being bitten by a vampire only moments before a crazed slayer busts onto the scene. The boy then must go through the awkward change from mortal to vampire, all while dealing with the average high school anxiety that comes with being with a boy his age. Comic gold unfolds and you get to watch a boy become a man and a vampire very quickly.

This is a must have for any lover of the 80's.

I saw this film for the first time at around 2am on some random cable network. I liked it so much, I had to buy it. I've seen it around a hundred times, and it never loses anything.

Jeremy Capello has a bit of a problem. He goes on a grocery delivery and meets a beautiful woman who invites him to come back to her house at midnight. A teenage boy with hormones all-a-rage wouldn't turn her down, that's for sure! He meets her, and she bites his neck just before a madman breaks the door down and runs him out.

The next day, he is approached by a man who claims that the woman was a vampire, and that he would soon be turning himself. Of course, Jeremy doesn't believe his new 'vampire advisor', until he starts to notice the changes himself.

This film is an 80's comedy, and is filled with great 80's music. The acting is surprisingly good, even though the film is full of no-name actors (except for one or two). Don't sit down expecting Oscar material and you might just enjoy this one. I personally can't wait until a DVD is for sale...if that ever happens.

I watched this movie a lot when I was younger and for a time I had a copy of it on VHS and then lost it again when I completely switched to DVD's and because it hadn't been released on DVD I despaired at ever seeing it again.

The acting is light but believable and David Warner (very good character actor) adds a little something extra to the movie.

I recommend this to any fan of the 80's, comedy fans, people who want to watch something light and of course vampire fans.

This movie is safe for teens but because of some of the risque humor and adult situations it's not safe for small children.

I have two complaints about this version, the first is the previews there's one for a very very scary movie that you want to be ready with the 'menu' button on your remote if you don't like scary movies or you're watching this movie with a teenager.

The second is that no soundtrack was released for this movie either songs or an original score and really...they should release them.

Thank you for reading my review.

Happy viewing!
