In 1994, in Toronto, the vampire Boya awakens from his twenty-five years of sleep in a basement hit by a golf ball. He takes a cab to the local cemetery, retrieves his belongings from a grave and lodges in a low budget hotel nearby an all-night donut shop. Boya does not drink human blood anymore but rats and pigeons blood instead. While in the donut shop, Boya befriends and protects the taxi driver Earl, who is having trouble with two criminals, and falls in love for the waitress Molly. Meanwhile, his former passion of 1969, Rita, who misses her lost youth, is trying to locate him. Written by

The best vampire movie since Lost Boys.. but with very little blood and lots of donuts! The vampire is hot.. the story is both funny and touching.. and the performances are all AMAZING!! I don't' understand why it wasn't a bigger hit.. and I certainly don't understand why it's not available on DVD.
The love story between the vampire and the older lady is exceptinally poignant..
Just because it's Canadian doesn't mean it isn't good.
PS.. why do comments have to be a minimum of 10 lines.. that' just stupid.
I love the movie.. but I don't want to write a dissertation about it!
