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

Just brilliant!
9 March 2016 | by tandrakaselSee all my reviews

I was waiting for this movie ever since the story broke that James Caan dropped out of a television series to take a part in it. I thought this has to be a great movie for an actor like James Caan to drop a series for it. Finally it came to the Vaughan Cinemas on a limited engagement. So we went the very first night. The theatre was a buzz with suspense and then it started and it literally sucked me and my friend it from the first scene. No pun intended. We were mesmerized with the big visuals and the big music. Every scene kept us on the edge of our seats as the story unfolded. The entire audience fell into the spell of this cinematic mastery as the director took us on a journey into the life of a mobster struggling with anxiety and anguish. This is a brilliant film, if I did not know better I would have thought that it was directed by Tarantino. I enjoyed it thoroughly, nice work Frank D'Angelo.
