Did You Know?


Originally, Jack Sholder was set to direct Lara Flynn Boyle and Dennis Hopper in the film. After Sholder backed out due to creative differences, John Landis stepped in and replaced Boyle and Hopper with Anne Parillaud and Robert Loggia, respectively. Landis himself had been set to direct another vampire film for Warner Bros. and Joel Silver called Red Sleep, starring Wayne Newton as a Las Vegas lounge singer who is bitten and seduced by a female vampire. When the failures of Landis' Oscar (1991) and Silver's Hudson Hawk (1991) killed that project, Landis moved on to Innocent Blood. See more »

User Reviews

Very bloody, equally funny, take on vampires and crime.
12 December 2001 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

This is not something I would typically enjoy, but it was recommended to me by someone I trust, so I watched it and was happily surprised. Citizen Kane it isn't, but we already have one of those and not everything has to be Great Cinema anyway. This is a very bloody (not my cup of tea, so to speak), very funny take on vampires and criminals. Good script, good performances, particularly from Parrilaud, Loggia and Don Rickles (!), playing a lawyers that even other lawyers would give a wide berth to in distaste. What happens to him is hilarious and proof that there can be justice, at least in films! Watch for the scene with the ambulance attendant and for the blonde nurse in the hospital. Check out the credits for some familiar names. Don't expect Art here, just sit back and have some fun. Recommended.
