Storyline

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 Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Original, Inventive...dare I say: Heartwarming?
3 March 2004 | by (Miami, FL) – See all my reviews

I thought I'd never say this about a vampire movie, but I sure did love this!

This indie effort is a hair shy of being a masterpiece. OK...I'm still trying to figure out why I am saying this...but still movie really dug into me and pulled my heart out. (Figuratively, of course.)

How many vampires can you say you would REALLY want to have as a friend? Boya is that vampire. He's all heart and soul. And that's a lot coming from a vampire.

BLOOD AND DONUTS has got to be the most inventive vampire movie I've ever seen. The fabric of the plot, interwoven with the quirky characters that populate this movie, coupled with great effects and careful direction has to now rank in my list of favorite movies.

Kudos to the director, Holly Dale, the writer, Andrew Rai Berzins and a really interesting and talented cast:

Gordon Currie as BOYA the vampire,

Justin Louis as EARL the cab driver/friend

Helene Clarkson as MOLLY the donut shop girl...

and let's not forget David Cronenburg as STEPHEN the "gangster"!

IF YOU THINK you've seen enough vampire movies, then you need to see this one! You'll be surprised.

The ending was very well done and satisfying for me. If you didn't get it, write to me...I'll be glad to explain what I think happened at the end and why.
