Not bad, I was entertained.
25 March 2003 | by ineubisSee all my reviews

Well, I got this movie cheap online, and it was quite an entertaining early 90's vampire movie to boot.

The movie stars Anne Parillaud as Marie, a French vampire in America, who feels guilty eating "good" people, so she only eats criminals.

She runs into Anthony "Bit Part" LaPaglia who plays a cop on the edge....little do they know, they are both pursuing the same guy, Robert Loggia, who plays the mob kingpin.

See what happens when a cop and a female vampire, must team up to topple a crime ring!

Special effects are "ok" for '92, but the glowing eyes thing gets really old after a while....

The movie is marketed as a comedy, and although Loggia plays a hilarious mob boss, the rest of the "comedy" was lost on me.

Bit part by Don Rickles. The mafia in this movie pretty much consists of everyone from Analyze This/That, minus Deniro...very entertaining cast of mobsters..

Anne Parillaud has some decent nude scenes.

Overall, a decent movie, worth a rental, or for a few bucks online...
