Jim Carrey in a horror movie? No way...well yes it happened before he was super famous, but he was still a comedian. In fact, I'd say put this as a comedy first and it's only a little bit of horror really mixed in. The story is about a 400 year old Countess who needs virgin blood 3x before Halloween hits...and Halloween is only a week away! It's sort of a doofy '80s comedy about the likelihood of finding virgins in LA. It's pretty silly funny and I'm sure fans of comedies or horror fans will find something to chuckle about. It's just not hilarious or entirely effective as either. Still not a bad little flick, I guess I just haven't seen it since I was a kid so my memories are a little shady on this one, I do remember thinking it was alright though!
