Goofs

The film portrays Peter shooting himself in the mouth, then remaining unharmed because the gun is loaded with blanks. However, this action would actually cause severe injury or death, since a gun loaded with blanks will fire compressed gas with the force of a bullet. See more »

Deeply dark and delicious
3 February 2003 | by mark_rodsethSee all my reviews

Vampire's kiss is great because it is dark and extreme and funny. One could say it was extremely funny or extremely dark. One would be right on both accounts. This is a story about a publisher, Peter Loew(Nicholas Cage), who descends into a mescaline driven psychotic fantasy where he becomes a vampire. Cage is fantastic as the mad protagonist and he ignites the story with an overbearing, over the top and extremely engaging performance. One of the best parts of the movie is his tyrannical relationship with his secretary, Alva. Only Cage could pull off such a ludicrously vengeful boss. Who will forget the scene where he confronts her in the style of Elvis Presley; hair disheveled, cigarette tenuously hanging from his lips, he trusts a finger in her direction and says, 'Am, I getting through to you....ALVA !!?' Top Stuff !
