He takes a cab to the local cemetery, retrieves his belongings from a grave and lodges in a low budget hotel nearby an all-night donut shop. Boya does not drink human blood anymore but rats and pigeons blood instead. While in the donut shop, Boya befriends and protects the taxi driver Earl, who is having trouble with two criminals, and falls in love for the waitress Molly. Meanwhile, his former passion of 1969, Rita, who misses her lost youth, is trying to locate him.Written by

My first reaction to BLOOD & DONUTS was THE BROTHER FROM ANOTHER PLANET. Not that BLOOD & DONUTS is a ripoff of BROTHER...but that both have the same "feel". BLOOD & DONUTS is an unusual film with unusual characters in unusual situations. It is a sincere film that does credit to its creators and participants. It is the most original vampire film I have yet to see. The focus here is not on the vampire or on vampirism but on the relationships that main character Boya forms and impacts. This film is as much a horror film as BROTHER FROM ANOTHER PLANET is a Sci-Fi film. And therein lies it charm. Highly recommended, but if you are expecting spine-tingling chills look elsewhere.
