For fans of campy cult movies, this is a godsend. Toni Basil as a horny vampire mom! Thomas Dolby as a vampire-hunting coffin salesman! Bo Diddley as himself! Not to mention the simple fact that this is an 80's rock Vampire Musical!
Rockula is about a male vampire who lost his lady love centuries ago. She was killed by a pirate with a rhinestone 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 rhinestone peg leg, wielding you-know-what. Now, in 1990, he has, he suspects, his last chance to try to 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.
