Bawdy fun dominates Juan Padron's animated Vampiros en La Habana, a spoof of gangster and vampire movies. The setting is 1933, and a convention of vampire-gangsters is meeting in Havana to get their hands on a fabulous new potion called "Vampisol" that at last lets vampires out into the sun without the harmful effects of UV rays. Living proof is a young vampire who was raised so normally that he has no idea he is a vampire -- though that will soon change. His father is a carefree trumpet player who invented "Vampisol" in the first place. The problem now is to control the wild bunch of vampires who are after the stuff.
