movie cover

The Countess has a problem. She is a 400-year-old vampire who will cease to look young unless she is able to feed on a virgin three times before Halloween, a week away. She sends her servant and all of her lesser vampires out to find one. Finding a virgin is difficult in Los Angeles.

Mark has a problem. He wants to 'do it' with his girlfriend in the worst way, but she wants to wait. Mark's goofy friends convince him to go to a Hollywood pick up spot where Mark meets the Countess, on the prowl. His girlfriend is not going to understand.

Qvamp says:

This movie is not anywhere near gay-positive. Its openly queer character is the Countess' mincing, fae black vampire butler.

As if that stereotype wasn't enough, Mark's friends have to check him out to see if he's been bitten by the vampire. Unable to see anything in the obvious locations, they check him his 'lower regions' while in the shower, prompting calls of 'Fags in the Showers' from all the other men - who run out of there as though demons are chasing them.
