'''''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?

* NeverLiveItDown: Robin asks Jamie and Russ to check Mark's inner thigh for bite marks. [[NotWhatItLooksLike They do this by Russ grabbing him from behind and Jamie getting on his knees and moving close in (he was half blind from shampoo at the time).]] Jamie remarks later that their lives in high school are over. He's not wrong, given the time.

* WhyDidntIThinkOfThat: After embarrassing incident in the shower, Mark asks Jamie and Russ why they didn't simply '''ask''' to look. They get looks of horror on their faces. Jamie assumes he's an ArmoredClosetGay while Russ tries to go with ICanExplain.

* 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...
