What do we have here then? A vampire film is it? NO! Well, not really anyway. Vampire's Kiss stars Nicolas Cage as a publishing executive who believes that he is turning into a vampire. What makes the film is Cage's incredibly camp, over the top, performance. A pre-Jim Carrey Jim Carrey role that he really grabs by the horns. We follow his character Peter Loew, as he obsesses about a vampire biting him, and proceeds to destroy his attempts at a relationship and terrorise (for seemingly no other reason than fun) his secretary. Whether you like this film or not depends on how dark you like your humour, and if you get the joke. There are too many great moments to point out, this is a great film to watch, with a "what is this crazy guy going to do next?" thing going on, all resulting in something very funny.
