Full Moon High is a light-hearted comedic romp from prolific director Larry Cohen. The movie opens in the 1950s when Tony Walker (Adam Arkin) is dragged from his life as a high school football star to Transylvania by his father and CIA operative, Colonel William Walker (Ed McMahon). Although ostensibly their reason for coming to Romania was a mission assigned to Tony's dad, the Colonel spends more time getting to know the local prostitutes than conducting any clandestine activity. To relieve his boredom, and to avoid being mentally scarred, Tony leaves the Colonel to his philandering ways and spends a night in Transylvania. After a freakish run-in with a fortune-teller, Tony gets a lesson in the local wildlife when he is attacked by a werewolf. Fast-forward twenty odd years, and Tony, rendered ageless by the werewolf's curse, decides now is the time to pick up where he left off by enrolling as a new student at Full Moon High.
