John is the lover of the gorgeous immortal vampire Miriam, and he's been led to believe that he'll live forever, too. Unfortunately, he quickly deteriorates into a horrible living death, and Miriam seeks a new companion. She soon sets her sights on Sarah, a lovely young scientist, who quickly falls under Miriam's spell. However, Sarah doesn't warm up to the concept of vampirism easily, leading to conflict with Miriam.
This is not your typical vampire movie by any means. This is one of the most artsy stylized vampire movie that you will see. The movie is very erotic. It is like watching a horror movie on the Playboy Channel or Cinemax after Dark. You remember those from the 80s. You were up watching after bedtime. There are lesbian love scenes with blowing fabric flowing across their bodies. It was not dirty or fifthly at all. The sex scenes were very beautiful.
Catherine Deneuve was still a beautiful woman in this movie. She was confident and sexy in her role. Her character was the most sensual and seductive woman that could find any one man or woman to be her next vampire lover. David Bowie was the new wave cool man that just happen to extremely old, since he has been with Miriam. She has kept him young. Susan Sarandon was so young and fresh faced in this movie. You could see her innocence on camera. Dan Hedaya was a younger furball in this movie. His character was not that important in the movie. Her was the detective looking into some missing persons. Ann Magnuson was not well know at all, but she was still great in the movie. The cast for the movie was on point.
This is one of those movies that is not for everyone, but it is a good movie for those that love movies. There is nothing scary about this movie at all. It is more like a bloody drama, than a horror movie. Enjoy.
