Storyline

In London, Vincent Monroe is a young man addicted in blood that wanders through the red light district looking for lonely people to satisfy his addiction, dropping their bodies in the Thames River. When the stripper Ruby Stone meets Vincent in a coffee shop after her show, they immediately fall in love with each other. They have one night stand and Vincent does not resist and bites Ruby's neck, freaking her out. Ruby leaves his apartment and returns to the night-club, where the psycho pimp that is obsessed on her harasses her. Vincent finds Ruby fainted in an alley and soon she discovers that Vincent has turned her into a vampire. Ruby convinces Vincent to stop drinking human blood and seek out a cure in Edinburgh. But the sadistic psycho, who has killed fifteen women, has discovered their address and is stalking Ruby. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Worth the wait
6 August 2007 | by (California, US) – See all my reviews

Night Junkies is a movie you will either love or hate. I, like most people I think, found out about this movie from the directors Myspace site where he's been using all sorts of marketing tactics to keep people interested during the long wait for the US release. Most of it fun, sometimes a little heavy handed.

Was it worth the wait? For me, definitely. For some others, definitely not. If you were hoping for a blood and guts Vampire movie with lots of special effects like the Blade movies, then you'll feel disappointed that Night Junkies is in fact more like a dark Vampire drama than a high action blood-sucker movie. Like Interview With a Vampire's more talky scenes set in modern day England.

I, however, really enjoyed it. I found the atmosphere throughout richly textured with the colors and lighting, the sets, the music and the style of it being deep and dark and sexually charged.

Some of the characters could have been a more explored and the movie could have been a more ambitious in it's aims. It ends up being quite a small story between just a few characters, but I read that it was made for $100,000 which is pretty amazing really. Night Junkies ends up being an interesting, and pretty unique vision of a type of Vampire movie I haven't seen before.

Lawrence Pearce is obviously not a director afraid of being in the public eye, by his Myspace site and the interviews I've read on the net. But well done, he should be very proud of his achievements so far.

The actors who played Vincent and Ruby gave admirable performances too, and the guy who played the Jack the Ripper characters is hilarious is a psychotic sort of way. Special mention should go to the composer and bands that made the music, it is a soundtrack that I'd buy.
