Virginal girl next doorEdit
Amy Peterson was a resident of Rancho Corvalis, Iowa. She attended Christopher L. Cushing High School and became Charley Brewster's wholesome girlfriend, tolerating his love for horror films and frequently denying him of sexual intimacy.
Defiled by a vampireEdit
She didn't believe Charley when he claimed that his neighbor, Jerry Dandrige, was a vampire. She learned her lesson the hard way when she was kidnapped by Jerry and turned into a vampire herself, and only her boyfriend could save her. Dandrige took a liking to Amy because of her resemblance to a portrait of his lost love. She was eventually saved when Charley and horror icon Peter Vincent destroyed Jerry Dandrige.
Charley and Amy ceased dating because he is so obsessed with his mysterious new neighbour that he sidelines Amy's decision to give herself to him and subsequently ignores her efforts to patch things up. She loves him however and is committed to try to help him until she gets seduced by Jerry.
There is a happy ending with Charley and Amy making up in his bedroom, but with a slight twist.
