In 1994, in Toronto, the vampire Boya (Gordon Currie) 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 (Justin Louis), who is having trouble with two criminals, and falls in love for the waitress Molly (Helene Clarkson). Meanwhile, his former passion of 1969, Rita (Fiona Reid), who misses her lost youth, is trying to locate him.

"Blood & Donuts" is a weird vampire movie, but also with a great potential of cult-movie. The unusual story is completely different from most of the films of vampire; actually it is a tale of loneliness, friendship, love and self-sacrifice. Goya is probably more human than any other character in spite of being a vampire. This is a typical very low budget movie that works, supported by magnificent story, screenplay, direction, performances, cinematography, special effects and music score. Actually the cinematography is top-notch and the music score is fantastic. I noted in IMDb that the excellent and unknown Helene Clarkson apparently interrupted her career in 1996. I regret only the terrible spelling mistakes in the subtitles in Portuguese of the Brazilian DVD released by Lider Distributor. Last but not the least, wait until the very last scene in the end of the credits. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Sangue de Vampiro" ("Vampire's Blood")
