Tagline:He's a vampire who hasn't scored in 400 years. Tonight's the night!
Plot: Rockula is about a male vampire who lost his lady love, centuries ago. She was killed by a pirate with a rhine stone peg leg wielding a large ham bone. Our hero, the vampire, did nothing to save her. So he is now cursed to watch her be born again, in another life, and then watch her die, strangely enough by a pirate with a rhine stone peg leg wielding you-know-what. Now, in 1990, he has, he suspects, his last chance to try and save her, instead of watching get clubbed over and over again down through the years. Oh, and he becomes a rock star in the process.
Comments: every 22 years, Ralph the vampire's love named Mona is lost exactly at midnight on Holloween. Every time, he sees her be killed by a pirate with a rinestone peg-leg weilding a gigantic ham bone. Really. in 1990, he meets Mona again, and falls in love with her. She has a band and he figures that the only way he can get close to her, is to make his own band. It was suggested by his mirror reflection (yes, he has a reflection, but he's a horny sucker) in a joke to name it Rockula, so he did. He meets her, they fall in love, he tells her about the past life and in order to make her believe it, he turns into a bat-type guy (short, hairy, bat ears, little wing-arms, boxer shorts.. you get the point) and she freaks out. She had been dating a mortitian, but he found out about Ralph's, umm... history. He consulted his psychic (which turned out to be Ralph's mom) and she told him to kill Mona and freeze her in a new cryogenic coffin so she'll be beautiful forever. She also tells him to dress as a pirate and gives him a rhinestone peg leg. you get the idea. He saves her, ends the chain, have a song break (yes, they do sing in this movie), and live happily ever after. Very, very funny movie. !
Favorite Quote: Stanley: You might say I have a -- a STAKE in what happens to you. I mean, I think Rockula's gonna take off like a bat out of hell. The world is full of bloodsuckers and I would hate for anything to happen to you!
