Charlie Brewster is a normal teenager from a quiet suburb. He loves horror movies, but his life is anything but scary—until a mysterious new neighbor moves in next door. Charlie, with everything he has learned from the horror genre, is certain that his new neighbor, Jerry, is a vampire. When strange things begin to happen, including the deaths of several local girls, Charlie is determined that Jerry is to blame. He sets out to stop him, but everyone close to him thinks his suspicions are crazy. Even worse, his mother is interested in dating their creepy new neighbor. With no one to help him, Charlie turns to Peter Vincent, a washed up actor from his favorite TV show. Peter Vincent hunts vampires on TV but does not believe they exist in real life. Just as his new neighbor begins to get closer to his mother and his girlfriend, Charlie must convince his new ally that Jerry is a member of the undead. Can they stop the vampire next door before he takes his next victims?
