I loved it!
8 October 2000 | by (Long Island, New York) – See all my reviews

Okay, so it's not your regular vampire fare. But this movie is so cute, with such sweet chemistry and oddly working storyline, that it works. Sure, it's rather silly. But this movie has a quality I can't describe which just makes you love it. The actors aren't particularly talented (except for maybe Adam Ant and Michelle Forbes who were just great) but they made it work. IT was cheesy, but in that "gotta love it" way that actually worked.

Adam Ant was just great. He turned in a great performance, and he just had a way with the part that was wonderful. I couldn't help but laugh out loud as he "turned into" a bat, or when he discovered about alarms ("You are too close to the dishwasher...step away from the dishwasher...").

All in all, I loved this movie, and I have to say that "Love Bites" is probably the sweetest, cutest, most feel-good vampire movie I've even had the joy of seeing. And Zachary Simms has to be the most perky, nice vampire in the world...
