Storyline

Equal parts Goodfellas and Dusk till Dawn, Sicilian Vampire tells the story of reputed mobster Sonny Traficante who was hoping to get away to the family hunt lodge for a little rest and relaxation and create some memories. Instead, what he got was a night he will never forget. Once there, Sonny is bitten by a bat released from a container of bananas they brought up to the lodge. The bat takes a vicious bite of Sonny's neck and then flies off into the night. From that moment on Sonny is entrusted with powers beyond that of any mortal - supersonic hearing, enhanced sight, and superhuman strength - even the ability to speak to the dead. Because of these heightened senses Sonny now feels a responsibility to right the wrongs in his life, and protect those he loves. At first, he resists these new found powers but in the end he welcomes his fate. Written by Frank D'Angelo

Great job - Four stars!
1 March 2016 | by karolesheadSee all my reviews

This movie is an interesting take on the typical mobster movie. In the film, Santo Trafficante, is a mobster who in addition to being in the middle of an impending gang war, is bitten by a vampire bat and finds himself capable of superhuman abilities. Though this may seem like a bit of an odd blend of genres – mobster meets horror – it comes together quite seamlessly, and makes for a great movie to watch. There's a little bit of all everything – action, drama, horror, some comedy, all tied together with some great acting from James Caan, Daryl Hannah, Robert Loggia, Armand Assante, Robert Davi and more. Not too shabby for an indie movie filmed in small-town Ontario!
