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

An excellent take on the Vampire movie
14 May 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Night Junkies proves that original vampire movies aren't as dead as you may think. Focussing on the character's addictions, it provides us with a different take on a genre, which has been lacking in recent times.

Without giving too much away, Giles Alderson plays a convincing Vincent, a vampire who happens upon a lap dancer named Ruby, played by Katia Winter. Yes, I know it may seem difficult to just 'happen upon' a lap dancer, but they actually meet in a cafe, rather than a club and fall for each other. As the story unfolds, we follow the two main characters as they fight against their addiction for blood and there is a good back story of Ruby's father, a heroin addict, which provides a nice mirror for Ruby's new addiction and her reasons to fight it. They are hunted by 'Psycho', who has a few secrets of his own and is played convincingly (Too convincingly???) by Rene Zagger. Successfully ignoring much of the vampire Mythology, we have no fangs here (Look for a great scene, where Ruby checks her teeth in the mirror), no garlic, no holy water. A stake through the heart or bullet in the head will kill, but then, that would kill anyone right? Set in the back streets on London, Lawrence Pearce's vision of life as a night junkie, mixes the sensual, haunting life of Vincent, with the rather more sexual background of Ruby, producing a film charged with both.

This is Lawrence's first 'flick' and there should be many more to come on the strength of this. Hopefully Night Junkies will get the recognition it deserves, paving the way for Night Junkies 2 and restoring our faith in dark, edgy vampire movies.

All in all a great movie, make sure you get to see it.
