Summary: Successful literary agent and self-obsessed New
York yuppie Peter Loew is bitten by his sultry date, Rachel, and
believes he is a vampire. His progressive mental deterioration
parallels his transformation into vampiredom. Will Peter succumb
to his undead tendencies?
Dialogue: Disjointed and incomprehensible lines make this movie a trial to watch.
Vampires: Traditional or Not? Rachel, the vampy seductress, can only fulfill her bloodlust when she's topless and in panties. Peter requires a $3.50 pair of plastic fangs to indulge his bloodthirsty urges.
Vampires: Physical Appeal: Peter needs serious psychiatric help, and it shows. You would run away from a freak like this.
Gore Factor: Although there is much implied violence, little blood is shed.
Scariness/Suspense: The only suspense comes from waiting for the real story to unfold.
Target Audience: Bored, intoxicated, or unconscious viewers might find this to be a hoot. Those cooped up in a Turkish prison for at least five years will love this flick.
