A fun and light-hearted vampire tale highlighted by some great special effects. A vampire (Chris Sarandon) moves in next door, and our hero, Charley Brewster, is determined to do something about it. Way out of his league, he calls upon the services of a bad actor (Roddy McDowall) who plays a vampire hunter on TV to help him get rid of the nasty blood sucking fiend, and together they manage to pull it off.
