The vampire Quinn who was attacked by Blade, reports back to his master Deacon Frost, who is planning a huge surprise for the human population. Written by
The scene where Karen and Deacon are talking about the cure for vampirism initially ran a bit longer and answered the question of how the vampires would feed if everybody was turned into a vampire. They would keep some humans alive in giant blood bags to harvest them. The bags can still be seen in a doorway during the scene, and later played an integral part of the plot in Blade: Trinity (2004) See more »
Smoke rises from Karen's collar while she is lying on the table before she is injected with the Essence of Garlic. It is in the shot that ends with Whistler reading her ID Badge. See more »

Exhilarating and Exciting Action/Thriller Masterpiece!
Blade is a fantastic action/thriller that keeps you captured for the whole duration and Wesley Snipes delivers what I would say to be his best performance yet.
This film has everything that you would ask for in an action/thriller, it has plenty of blood, guts and gore, a twisted, disturbed bad buy, moments of humour but most importantly a very good story line with plenty of twists.
Their is constant action throughout the film with breathtaking stunts and effects, Wesley Snipes fighting movement is fantastic.
This film is in my opinion a must see, Wesley Snipes cool, solid appearance makes this film and I can't wait for the sequel 'BLADE 2' being released next year.
My IMDB Rating - 9 out of 10
