This attempt to combine elements of vampire lore with the limited format of the teen sex comedy is a monstrous movie all right, a frighteningly awful horror comedy. The Countess (Lauren Hutton) is a centuries-old vampire who requires a triple feeding of virgin blood before every Halloween

to maintain a youthful appearance. She now lives in 1980s Los Angeles where, in an oft-repeated joke, teenage virgins are a rare commodity. Mark Kendall (Jim Carrey) is a high school student who desperately wants to bed his reluctant girl friend, Robin (Karen Kopins). Fate intervenes when Mark

ventures to a freaky Hollywood bar and meets the Countess--both characters finding the perfect mate to satisfy their desires. Hutton makes a sensual vampire, but this comedy wastes what she brings to the part by consistently relying on cheap laughs to provide the bulk of the film. Carrey brings

some humor to his part--considering the script limitations--but his efforts, too, simply aren't enough to overcome the lame jokes, which rely heavily on sex gags.
