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 »

One of the best vampire movies I've ever seen
19 April 2005 | by gjwr-1See all my reviews

The story, actors and the limited special effect use all combine to make a great movie. Anne Parillard was perfect in her role as the French Vampire, Anthony LaPaglia is a great foil for Parillard. Robert Loggia as the Mafia Don almost stole the whole movie but the best character honors went to Don Rickles who played Loggia's legal mouth piece. The cinematography is first rate, the blending of the score and action is very smooth. Setting the time of the movie during Chrismas adds to the mix. I watch An American Werewolf in London then Innocent Blood followed by An American Werewolf in Paris every Holloween Eve. Holloween day I watch Dawn of the Dead and Day of Trifids. What can I say, I love horror movies.
