Rockula is about a male vampire who lost his lady love, centuries ago. She was killed by a pirate with a rhine stone 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 rhine stone peg leg wielding you-know-what. Now, in 1990, he has, he suspects, his last chance to try and 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.
