Once Bitten (John DuPrez)

High-schooler Mark (Jim Carrey) is talked into playing the field by some friends and meets a vampire countess (Lauren Hutton) who needs the blood of virgins to sustain her youth. Very 80s comedy, with all the cheesy, offensive humor one would expect...but, while undistinguished, it's occasionally entertaining and Carrey shows glimmers of the star we'd come to know and love.

John DuPrez's lively score is buoyed by a delightful tango-ish main theme. Some other highlights include a driving climactic cue ("The Big Chase") and a melody that sounds like it came from an Italian horror movie ("Bite-mare").
