A total and wonderful surprise
17 February 1999 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

I picked up this movie expecting to see another lame vampire movie. While it still had some very Tromaesque scenes and dialogue I have to say that over all, I was impressed. It was not a typical troma or vampire movie. It was new and inventive in ways you wouldn't think could be.

The story on the box says it's about a vampire dealing with AIDS. What the box doesn't mention is how interestingly the story is told. The story and characters are balanced on the shoulders of a guy named Reed who is a Renfield type ghoul working for the ailing vampire. His is the only human side of the whole story, which is ironic, because he acts less human than any of the vampires! This guy is special in how weird he is! He comes up with the strangest body movements I have ever seen and has a way of delivering his lines with such an off beat timing that you are forced to accept him as the weirdo he is. Not only do you accept him but you really start to like him. Reed is a true gem to this movie.

The script tells an interesting story. While it does show the signs of low budget filmmaking it also shows a good deal of orginality - originality in the story, in the look and in some of the performances. The visuals of this movie are also interesting. The vampires' world has strange camera shots and very deep red and blue lighting while the regular world is, well, normal looking.

If you don't like weird horror comedy movies, you most likely won't like this one. If, however, you enjoy a fun and corny low budget movie, I would recommend you see this movie as soon as you can.
