Egyptian vampire lady Miriam Blaylock (Catherine Deneuve) is about to rid herself of her present lover John (David Bowie) like so many others before him. He is rapidly aging and falling apart. In desperation, he seeks the help of famous Dr. Sarah Roberts (Susan Sarandon) and her boyfriend Tom (Cliff De Young) who are researching rapid aging in primates.
This movie is filled with good moody atmosphere and interesting style. However the story moves so slowly with Bowie trudging along as an old man. One could really fall asleep watching this. It is truly shocking that action director Tony Scott made this. Maybe he learned what not to do from this movie. But it does look good.
