Movie Summary

Director:
Robert Bierman
Released:
1988
Rating:
R
Vampire’s Kiss is a 1989 American dark comedy/psychological horror film, starring Nicholas Cage, Maria Conchita Alonso, Jennifer Beals, and Elizabeth Ashley. The film is about Peter Loew (Nicholas Cage), a yuppie literary agent whose extreme drive is making him crazy. His rants are so bonkers that even his psychiatrist (Elizabeth Ashley) is bothered by some of them. Nonetheless, he plods on in his pursuit of prestige, wealth, and one night stands. It is one of these one night stands, however, that sends him overboard. When he picks up the mysterious, but beautiful, Rachel (Jennifer Beals), who may just be a figment of his deranged imagination, at a nightclub, the state of his mental health takes a turn for the worse. He believes that she is a vampire and feeds on him on a nightly basis, slowly turning him into a vampire as well. His fits of rage reduce his apartment to shambles and he starts to exhibit even stranger behaviors, including eating cockroaches. By the end of the film, the viewer no longer knows what is real and what is not. Is Loew really that crazy? Does Rachel exist? Watch Vampire’s Kiss to find out!moreless

    The bloodsuckers in this thriller may not have much bite, but here's a movie that can -- it's guaranteed -- drain the life out of an audience in minutes.
