Once Bitten(Review)[Twisted Throwback Thursday]


Let's take a look at horror comedy Once Bitten, which featured Jim Carrey's first major role. He stars as hapless virgin Mark Kendall who catches the attention of a vampire countess who need to drink the blood of virgins to keep her youthful appearance.


Much of the movie involves her stalking him, even showing up with his girlfriend around. After she first bites him, which involves him losing his buttons, he begins a slow transformation into a vampire. His girlfriend doesn't understand what is going on, and she ends up being in a dance-off during a Halloween dance where everyone thinks Mark is dressed as a vampire, much to his dismay.


The ending shows us the power of love and young hormones which thwarts the countess for now. In all, Once Bitten had some humorous bits, and showcased Jim Carrey's physical comedy. This is probably his most normal role, which is saying a lot when it comes to him. A classic horror for sure.
