Summary: The film stars Eddie Murphy as Maxmillian the Vampire and Angela Bassett as Rita, an unsuspecting rookie cop who is half vampire. Maxmillian comes to New York to find Rita who is the only vampire left from his tribe originally from the Bermuda Triangle. He arrives on a large ship that crushes several boats and docks. It also runs through a building in which Julius (Kadeem Hardison) and his uncle are making bets. Julius is followed by Maxmillian and he saves him from some loan sharks that want to collect their money. Julius is made into Maxmillian's ghoul, or slave. Rita and Justice, her partner, arrive at the docks to investigate the ship, and find that all of the crew are dead and drained of blood. Rita goes inside the boat and finds a coffin; she looks inside and sees herself. When she tries to show this to her partner it has disappeared. Justice finds a ship's log with strange writing so they take it to Dr. Zeko, a writing specialist. He tells them that the writing is from the islands in the Bermuda Triangle. Meanwhile Maxmillian has moved into Julius's apartment and is intent on finding Rita so he can make her into a full vampire. They find her at a club, and he wins her trust by saving her from a cobra. Julius messes up the scheme by telling Rita that Max is warm for her form. Max follows her home, and seduces her roommate, then kills her. Rita has gone to a nearby church to figure things out, and she talks to a preacher, who is really Max since he has killed the preacher and assumed his form. The preacher gives a sermon on the lawn that tells the congregation that evil is good. Rita and Justice go to an Italian restaurant to talk to the mob. Max appears in the form of a mob gopher, and Rita apprehends him. She is suspended for not working well with her partner. Max follows her from the department, and saves her from being hit by a car. They agree to go on a date at his apartment. While she is there he bites her and begins her transformation into a vampire. The next day Justice comes over and she and Justice are about to make love when she begins to act like a vampire. She goes to Max to confront him, and he tells her that her father was a vampire. Justice, in the meantime has gone to Dr. Zeko's to find out about vampires. He says Max must be killed before Rita has her first taste of blood, or it won't be reversed. They go to Max's apartment. Rita is able to kill Max and she is again herself. Julius the ghoul becomes a vampire as a reward for his duties as a ghoul.
