Innocent Blood

release year: 1992
genre: light horror
viewing setting: theater in 1992; home laserdisc, 10/15/97
what I expected: vampire romance
what I got: a fairly good vampire movie

synopsis: Marie is a petite little French vampire living in a mob-infested American city. She dines on a crimelord, but doesn't get to finish the job...and the vampirism spreads...

impressions: This was a good comedy/horror/drama and was rather entertaining. It had many funny lines and scenes.

acting: Fair to excellent. Anna Parillaud (La Femme Nikita) did a good job as the innocent-looking but potentially savage Marie. Robert Loggia and Don Rickles made good mob guys (and good mob-guy vampires.)

final word: Worth seeing.

rating: C
