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.
