Trivia

Originally, Jack Sholder was set to direct Lara Flynn Boyle and Dennis Hopper in the film. After Sholder backed out, due to creative differences, John Landis stepped in and replaced Boyle and Hopper with Anne Parillaud and Robert Loggia, respectively. Landis himself had been set to direct another vampire film for Warner Brothers and Joel Silver, called "Red Sleep", starring Wayne Newton as a Las Vegas lounge singer who is bitten and seduced by a female vampire. When the failures of Landis' Oscar (1991) and Silver's Hudson Hawk (1991) killed that project, Landis moved on to this movie. See more »

* *1/2 out of 4.
23 August 2002 | by brandonsites1981See all my reviews

Glossy horror / comedy about sexy vampire Marie (Anne Parillaud) who only kills those that should be dead. While feeding on a local mobster (Robert Loggia) she is disrupted and forced to leave before she can finish him off. He returns to life and sets up shop turning the members of his criminal family into vampires. Adding to Marie's problems is her relationship with a police officer (Anthony La Paglia) out to nab Loggia. Loggia is terrific in a dynamic performance. He steals the whole show. Parillaud has some rather sexy moments. And the film does a good job of balancing the comedy and horror.

Rated R; Nudity, Sexual Situations, Graphic Violence and Profanity.
