Synopsis: 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.
Director(s): Luca Bercovici

- Hi.


' Ah!

- Ralph.

This place is a mess.

- Mom, I'm trying to practice.

- Well honey could you do me a favor

and lock up tonight?

I got a date with a very nice man.

- Who is it this time mom?

- Well I'm not sure yet but I will know

him when I see him.


I always forget.

- Mom, I've always meant to ask you,

how do you put your makeup on?

- Practice.

- Ralphie, how do I look?

- You look great, mom.

- 00o, that's why I love my Ralphie.

My boy, my boy, mama boy.

- Hey Ralph-


- What do you want?

- Come here and talk to me.

How's it hangin'?

- Is that all you wanted?

To ask me, "How's it hangin'?"

- Come on Ralphie, I'm worried about you.

A couple of hours it's

gonna be Friday the 13th.

Let me guess, you have a headache, right?

- Right, and a sore throat, too.

- And you think you're

coming down with the flu

or something really serious, right?

- Right, I just can't go

through with this again.

- Let me see your tongue.

Come on.

Nah, it doesn't look too bad.

Is that a new retainer?

- Yeah, it hurts like heck.

- I'm sorry.

I know, this legend thing is tough.

Let's take a moment and reflect.


Get it?

Mirror, reflect.

God, I kill myself.

- Reflect, real funny.

Sometimes I really hate that guy.

What am I saying?

He's me.

I guess that means I hate myself.

Why am I confused?

Vampires are so misunderstand.

- Well you gotta admit, they

got a bloodthirsty reputation.

- Do I look bloodthirsty?

I can't stand the sight of

blood, I swear, I faint.

- What about garlic?

- I cook with it all the time.

It's good for colds.

Did you know that?

- Let me see if I can get this straight.

Around the middle of

the 16th century, you--

- 17th, right?

- Right.

- Whenever.

A long time ago.

You met this girl, you fell in love.

But there was a problem,

she had a boyfriend.

- A pirate.

- A pirate?

- Pirate.

- Whatever.

Now, she loved you, right?

So you were gonna slip off, get married,

when old peg leg finds out, has a shit fit

and comes after you.

- Pissed as hell.

- I just established his mental state.

So there's a fight.

Peg leg loses his sword

and what's her name

gets killed by a blow to

the head with a ham bone?

- Mona.

Her name was Mona.

- Whatever.

You tried to save her,

but what could you do

in the face of 20 pissed

off pirate friends

of peg leg's, who were going to turn you

into bat meat and so you beat it.

- He escaped

by the skin of his teeth.

- Right.

And since she was killed before you could

fulfill your preordained lot--

- Before he could give

her that final, fatal kiss

and turn her into a vampire.

- Whatever.

She is now reincarnated every 22 years

until you two can get it right, right?

- Right.

- And so tomorrow you are gonna meet her

as you've done every 22 years,

you'll fall in love,

and unless you save her,

this crazed pirate with a

rhinestone peg leg will kill her.

- On Halloween.

- You got it.

- What are you gonna do?

- I'm gonna do what I

should have done years ago.

I'm gonna lock myself in my room

and avoid this whole thing.

- Well, you're not gonna meet her?

- You're not gonna fall in love?

- She's better off without me.

- Man, that dude's sure got the blues.

Mm mm mm.

- He just ran out in front of us.

- Look he's moving.

- Are you alright?

- Oh god, Mona.

- Why don't you watch where you're going?

I could have, how did you know my name?

- I don't know your name.

You don't know my name.

Just pretend this never happened, okay?

- It never would have

happened if you hadn't

jumped out in front of my car.
