In this offbeat animated feature, a scientist invents a potion that allows vampires to live under the rays of the sun at last. When word gets out to the bloodsuckers around the world, they fly to Cuba to gain control of the potion, leading to a battle between American and East European vampires. One of the few Cuban films to receive US distribution in the 1980s, Vampires in Havana is a clever mix of horror and political satire.
