I LOVE this film. It has that very 80s teenage movie vibe and it's Fantastic. From start to finish a very young Jim Carey gives comic relief to make this vampire flick fun and refreshing.

Pretty intriguing film. It`s the 80`s and full of vampire comedy.

One of the best coming of age comedy movies I have ever watched. I understand the movie has some corny moments and crude humor in it, but it was always seemed magical to me! This was Jim Carrey's first starring role with the very sexy and hot Lauren Hutton. His virginal sweet heart Karen Kopins, was something worth fighting for as well and the clash between an experienced woman verses an innocent one just worked out perfectly for me. I loved the scene where innocent Robin told the countess "Mark doesn't want you because your mean and evil, he wants me because I'm nice and sweet and pure, so F--- off!

The supporting cast was wonderful from The countess Sebastian to Jim Carrey's friends who fit the typical stereotypical male virgins saying all the wrong things to the women they meet. If you can give the movie a chance and be transported back to a more innocent time with 80's music, a great cast and a light way to look back at those embarrassing moments of growing up.

Totally cheesy and over the top, but this is a hell of a lot of fun!

It has that 80s guilty pleasure feel mixed with the horny teen comedies, unfortunately it has none of the smart charm.

Pretty pants, even by 80s standards.

Jim Carrey doesn't believe in vaccinations. He and his movies are idiotic

This One Hasn't Aged Well At All. But That Said, The Robin Character Looked Fantastic & Her Dance Routine With Mark (Jim Carey) Was Nicely Choreographed. The Story Itself Had A Chronically Bad Scooby-Doo, Kids Solving The Case Quality To It All..Alongside A Very Trash-80s Soundtrack. Overall I Didn't Enjoy It, That's Why I'm Scoring It Pretty Damn Low.

The only thing I remember about this movie is Jim Carrey and vampires if that tells you anything. Jims first role I believe and its forgettable. If you've never seen it, you are a Jim Carrey fan, and are extremely bored go ahead and give it a watch. Otherwise don't waste your time.

A quirky 80's film that's aged like fine wine, and boy is it tasty

Jim Carrey is hilarious and steals every scene.

"Fags in the shower! Fag alert!" I lol'd. Solid soundtrack. Good arc, but the moral is absolutely horrible.

Once Bitten was released in 1985 and stars Lauren Hutton and a pre-fame Jim Carrey. It didn't do well when it was originally released, but it garnered enough of a fan base from folks who grew up watching it on cable throughout the 80's. In this vampire tale, Lauren Hutton is a sexy vampire lady on the prowl for young blood. With the help of her assistant (Cleavon Little), they find just the type of young blood she craves in Mark (Carrey), a young guy with some relationship problems. The movie is less of a spoof and more of a general comedy instead. Unfortunately, the jokes misfire most of the time and none of the actors really stand out as being particularly funny, especially Carrey and Hutton. Hutton spends her time just being a sexy vampire, which she's very good at, ahem, but Jim Carrey just doesn't seem right for the material. But that's not to say that there isn't any merit to the movie whatsoever. As far as comedy premises go, this isn't a bad one, and I did smile occasionally at some of the situational humor, especially concerning Carrey with his girlfriend and Hutton's interaction with Carrey. But unfortunately, the movie contains just less than middle of the road comedy material.

Though its fun final act helps compensate for its dull middle, this fast-paced comedy ultimately proves toothless. Commendable points include Cleavon Little's hip-swinging camp swagger, earnest Jim Carrey (with accent!), sexy Lauren Hutton, sexy Karen Kopins, "his & his towels," "rump rangers," and the best damn 80s dance-off you've never seen. Less commendable points include the remainder of the film.

Hey, what can I say? It's still a better vamp story than Twilight. Rent it.

This movie may have "sucked" back in the 80's, but watching it close to 30 years later, it was pure delight.

First, we have a wicked Lauren Hutton playing the delicious Countess. Then, his henchman (driver/butler) played with such flair by the late Cleavon Little. Then we have Jim Carrey's first staring role, where you can watch early signs of his comedic genious.

To wrap things up, there's the music, the hairdos, the clothes and the abundant 80's teen movie cliches.

I ask now, what's not to like? A trip down memory lane for those that found movies like Weekend at Bernies, Weird Science and Teen Wolf "highly" entertaining. This is a great companion piece.

Loved it to death OMG Jim has always been and always will be an amazing actor

Jim Carrey teen sex comedy with a vampire. Desperate to get some, Jim ventures to a nightclub where he is picked up by an older woman who happens to be vampire Countess.Not very entertaining, despite a few funny moments; on par with the similarly-themed My Best friend is a vampire. Laura Hutton is the highlight.

A very funny and light hearted movie. Carrey and Kopins are 80s romantic-comedic first rate quality.
