The Special edition laserdisc contains scenes that were cut out of the film due to graphic violence: the vampire feast (dinner is served) is extended and one part has a girl popping a pimple on a guy. There's another scene in which Sex Machine kills off two more vampires and takes a picture of one of them. See more »
A movie that will have you laughing at the sheer absurdity of its scenes. The corny scenes fit the tone of the film as well.

A good Halloween monster flick and has a solid Clooney performance.
