bloodless vampire movie
25 February 2013 | by christopher-underwoodSee all my reviews

Rather bloodless vampire movie from TV movie veteran, John Llewellyn Moxey and starring, David Naughton who co-starred in, American Werewolf in London, the year before. The idea is great in that in this updated version, the one in search of blood poses as a hooker to ensnare and in between these bouts supplements the supply with raids on hospital blood banks, as you would. All good, but here played so carefully that those special ingredients (sex and violence!) only get hinted at here. For some the wailing sax (such a sign of 80s films) is effective, for some of us lazy and tiresome, but the films just about engages and is helped enormously halfway through with a fantastic interjection by the priest figure. If only the whole film had been as vital, or indeed, dare I say, Mr Naughton's performance as effective.
