In his first lead role, Jim Carry plays virginal high school student Mark Kendall. Mark's girlfriend, Robin Pierce (Karen Kopins), is an old fashioned respectable girl. He is tortured by an acute awareness that everyone else around him in liberal Los Angeles is getting action and he is not. One night, Mark's two best friends, Jamie and Russ, take him to a singles bar in Hollywood. There, he meets a beautiful, sultry older woman called The Countess (Lauren Hutton). In this case, "older" is a huge understatement as The Countess is actually a 400 year old vampire in search of a virgin. She needs to drink virgin blood three times before midnight on Halloween in order to preserve her beauty and appearance of youth. In liberal Los Angeles of the 1980s, she is despairing that there may be no virgins left when she finally meets Mark.

Following their fateful meeting, The Countess plots to get in three bites before the deadline. If she succeeds, Mark will become a vampire. Meanwhile, his girlfriend and two best friends conclude something is up and seek to uncover the truth and save their friend. The conflict includes a dance off and hilarious chase scene.
