The Film: Rockula (1990)
The Vamp: Ralph LaVie (Dean Cameron), a young man cursed 400 years ago to watch the woman he loves - and failed to save from, er, a murderous pirate who batters her with a ham bone – get reborn every 22 years and then die again from the same fate. Did we mention it’s a comedy?
Why Are They Weird? He rocks! Well, he plays music. Actually, he’s rubbish as vampires go – obsessed with saving his gal, he doesn’t bother to attack anyone.
And the Elvis look (white jumpsuit era)? Nosferatu would stake himself if he saw it.
Fangs for the trivia: Rocker Bo Diddly appears as one of the Rockula band members.
