Funny, unintentional or not...
18 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

One of the funniest movies I have ever seen, but I still wonder to this day if it was meant to be this way or not. The central idea of the story revolves around Peter Loew, a mid-level executive in a book publishing company, who believes himself to be bit by a vampire (the way Jennifer Beals looked in this film, most men probably would give their right and left jugulars to be in his place, but I digress...) In any case, it is rather unclear until the end if these nocturnal visitations by the lady vampire are real or not, but watching Nicholas Cage play the deranged Peter Loew was a masterpiece of comic acting. It is questionable if the director intended the movie to be this way, as it does come across as a serious horror film in many ways, but my wife and I are pretty sure that he saw he had a turkey of a horror script and so told Cage to "run with it" and take it as far over the top as possible. And does he! Highly recommended for those that like black comedy and psychological story lines -- but if you are looking for real horror fare, just skip it. Best scenes: when he eats a roach, eats a bird (not seen on screen), and bites a woman to death with his plastic vampire teeth. Enjoy!
