Did you know that Jim Carrey's first starring role was as a high school virgin who is slowly being turned into a Vampire by evil (but sexy) Lauren Hutton? It's True! The Salty Nerds take a look at the horror movie comedy film mash-up Once Bitten. Originally written as a starring vehicle for Elvira, this is a film about a vampire Countess who needs to drink the blood of a virgin every year in order to preserve her eternal beauty. But finding a virgin in the 80s is more difficult than it seems! But she thinks her problems are solved when she bumps into hapless (and hard up) high schooler Mark Kendall, who is willing to cheat on his long-time girlfriend Robin in order to lose his V-card. Little does he know he's unwillingly trading it in for a different kind of V-Card - as in VAMPIRE!
Young Jim Carrey shines in this horror comedy about high school angst. And Los Angeles in the 80s was crazy, wasn't it?
