* OffscreenInertia: When last seen, Jamie, and Russ seem to have gotten to second base with two of the Countess' female minions, and the movie never gets back to them. Given what the Countess herself wanted from Mark, those two might have gotten a little in over their heads...

'''''Once Bitten''''' (1985) is a Comedy Spoof of the Vampire Seducer genre.

It was a vehicle for the very early career of JimCarrey, who played Mark, sex-minded teenage boy in love with his girlfriend Robin, who was a good girl and wouldn't put out, keeping them both virgins.

Along came the mysterious and beautiful Countess (Lauren Hutton), an ancient vampire who needed [[VirginSacrifice the blood of a male virgin]] to stay young and beautiful -- but it's TheEighties, and where is a vampire going to find a male virgin in Los Angeles?!

Mark, frustrated by Robin's refusal to give him any, goes into LA. The Countess spots him, and decides to take his blood for her youth and add him to her coterie of [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld immortal teenage]] vampires. Robin knows something's up -- will ThePowerOfLove be enough to pull Mark back from the clutches of an undead seductress?

----

!!This film provides examples of the following tropes:

* AgeWithoutYouth: The Countess' fate when she isn't able to drink from Mark the third time -- in time.
* AutoErotica: Mark seeing the parking lot of cars bouncing and shaking with other people having sex after getting the cold shoulder from Robin. Ouch... just ouch.
* BadHumorTruck: Mark has an after school job as an ice cream truck driver -- but his partial transformation into a vampire terrifies all the children away from him.
* CampGay: The Countess' mortal manservant, Sebastian.
-->'''Sebastian:''' "I came out of the closet years ago."
* ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve : The Countess, being an atheist, is unaffected by the cross.
* DeathBySex: Inverted, as sex is what saves Mark's life. And dooms the Countess to being an old woman.
* [[DontComeAKnockin Don't Come A-Knockin']] The only thing to get Robin finally to put out is the realization that if she doesn't, the Countess will turn Mark into a vampire.
* TheEighties: Complete with UnfortunateImplications and some rather unfortunate gay jokes that might make the more enilghtened of the 21st century shake their heads.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Aside from Mark, the oldest male virgin the Countess's minions could track down is ''eleven''. The Countess is repulsed by the idea of biting a pre-teen.
* ForHalloweenIAmGoingAsMyself: Inverted. Mark shows up at the costume party in all black and everyone thinks he has come as a vampire, except Robin, who is upset he didn't bother to be Jack to her Jill.
-->'''Mark:''' I'm not ''wearing'' a ''costume''!
* GoodSmokingEvilSmoking: Good girl Robin and Mark share an inexplicably appearing after-sex cigarette in the coffin now that she's been the ultimate good girl and given him sex to save his life.
* GuiltyPleasures: It's one of those SoBadItsGood or absolutely awful movies.
* HeyItsThatGuy: Sebastian is [[Film/BlazingSaddles Sheriff Bart.]]
** The librarian [[PhantomOfTheParadise sang with The Juicy Fruits]].
* KissOfTheVampire: The Countess' bite is enough to generate euphoria, strange dreams, and partial amnesia on Mark's part.
* AManIsNotAVirgin: Subverted. Not only is Mark a virgin, but so are his two best friends, not for lack of trying.
** The librarian still makes fun of Mark, saying that if he's an 18-year old virgin, a vampire trying to get him should be the least of his worries.
* MateOrDie: If Mark loses his virginity before the Countess can drink from him for the third time, his blood becomes worthless to her.
* MyGirlIsNotASlut: Robin pretty much embodies this, to Mark's frustration.
* NatureAbhorsAVirgin: The movie begins with Robin balking at going all the way.
* OurGhoulsAreCreepier: PlayedForLaughs as Mark's transformation progresses. He stays cute despite the preference for fresh blood.
* OurVampiresAreDifferent: The Countess needs a virgin's blood to keep her youth and beauty. She likes men, so it has to be a male virgin.
* PrecisionFStrike: Robin for the win:
-->'''Robin:''' He doesn't want ''you'' because you're mean and evil. He wants ''me'' because I'm ''nice'' and ''sweet'' and ''pure''. So ''fuck off!''
* RunningGag: Russ getting shot down after his well-practiced come-on speech:
--> '''Russ:''' ''I'm'' a mature person, and ''you're'' a mature person, so why don't we just skip all of the bullshit, get rid of our inhibitions and do what we really wanna do?
** And ButtMonkey Jamie being afraid of everything from dating to being gay.
* SlidingScaleOfVampireFriendliness: Despite needing a [[VirginPower virgin "sacrifice"]], the countess and her coven seemed to be in the middle of friendliness scale. As befits a light comedy, the death in her wake was a big 'ol zero, and there were no morality shifts or ravening thirst. The Countess herself was pretty friendly for an evil seductress, and two girls from the coterie and Mark's friends got on pretty well.
** PokeThePoodle: About the only "evil" thing the Countess did was to push over an old lady and a nun who were in her way -- the latter of which was merely someone in a costume.
* SpeedSex: How Mark and Robin eventually render him ineligible for the Countess's attentions.
---> '''The Countess:''' {incredulous} You've had ''less than a minute''!
* VampireDance: Robin and the Countess have a dance-off/tug of war over and with Mark -- to a song called "[[http://youtu.be/fuk--kEGvGE Hands Off]]," yet.
* VirginPower: The only reason the Countess is interested in Mark -- because his virgin blood keeps her young and beautiful.
* VirusVictimSymptoms: In uncomfortable places.
