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

Each time you turn your back, a few more... gone, makes you want to withdraw.
Yeah, well. Can't go through life afraid to connect 'cos the thing might end, right?

Don't care much if you like it, already saw one post that ripped it. But the bottom line is I can't get this movie out of my head. Great music score, great story line. I undertand it's a B movie, but that's okay! I was just plain entertained. First time I watched it was midnight on the Sci-Fi channel. Kept my finger on the power off button on the remote for the first 20 minutes, but couldn't bring myself to kill the movie. I was sucked in for this zaney ride into Boya's life and times. What a ride! I really cared about him, I felt his pain, I liked the guy. Someone I could be friends with. Buy the movie...watch the movie...be the movie.
