Marie has two appetites, sex, and blood. Her career as a vampire is going along fine until two problems come up, she is interrupted while feeding on Sal (the shark) Macelli and she begins to develop a relationship with the policeman who has been trying to put Sal away. Sal wakes up in the morgue very confused and very thirsty. He goes back to his old haunts and begins to create an organized crime family of vampires while Marie and her policeman lover hunt him…

I’ll be honest, I’m a big John Landis fan but until this release, I had no idea about this movie. The film starts off like a more serious mob film with a vampire twist, but soon it starts to get plenty bloody and it becomes all the more humorous along the way as well. Now don’t get wrong, I liked it. Heck, I liked most of what this one has to offer up, but it was a little odd the way we just spiral into 90’s horror comedy slowly but surely. Among this story of an undercover cop is a very hot vampire played by Anne Parillaud. Now I wouldn’t call her the best actress in the world but when you are playing this hot of a vampire you don’t really have to be. She bites the local mod boss the undercover cop it after and doesn’t get to kill him before he turns. He then starts raising hell while the cop and the hot vampire are on his trail. It is really a good time and even better it is a bloody time.

The early 90’s had a lot of awful horror movies. Many of those movies tried to be funny along the way. This one might be more of a hidden gem in a lot of ways. It has that mob movie feel but it also has a very dark and back alley vampire movie feel to it as well which helps a whole lot in dragging out a certain mood and vibe while watching. It might also help to note that the movie looks great in HD here from Warner. I’d have liked more in the way of extras but we should probably just be happy we have this movie on Blu-ray now. It isn’t as great as An American Werewolf in London from Landis, but it isn’t that bad and will find more than one way to keep you watching.
