Our protagonist, Ralph is a 300 year old vampire stuck in a 20 something’s body. His mother, played by Toni Basil is also a centuries old vampire stuck in a 20 something’s body…She likes to sing….
Poor Ralph has been cursed. Every 22 years he runs into, Mona, the girl of his dreams. But every time he finds her, these goddamn peg legged pirates kidnap her and take her away. WHAT?!?! Yeah, this whole movie is chock full of ‘em.
Rockula is forgotten for a reason. It’s very much a cash-in of Porky’s, Teen Wolf, Monster Squad and perhaps Rocky Horror Picture Show. Although as silly and slightly entertaining as it is, by the end I’m bored to tears and I have a sneaking suspicion the people involved in making this were too. Don’t expect the Rockula remake anytime soon. This will be stuck in the vaults forever.
