Basic Premise:
Marie is a despondent vampire looking for a meal and decides mafiosos are on the menu. She screws up a feeding and turns a mafia don. Now she has to track him down and kill him with the help of an ex-undercover cop who used to run with the mafiosos.

Review:
Anne Parillaud’s accent made it really hard to understand her at times, especially when John Landis (director) felt the need to give her a god’s head voice. The vampire eyes were always askew. Sucks when the prop contacts don’t work.

Unnecessary full frontal nudity. Slow-paced for what it was and a little campy. There were a lot of loose ends at the end of the film. But hey, at least the cop got laid.
