Vampire's Kiss
[AllPosters.com] Buy posters from this movie
by Rob Gonsalves

"Cage fans can't do without this one."
5 stars

A fascinating cult black comedy with an infamously left-field performance by Nicolas Cage as a Manhattan literary agent who thinks he’s a vampire.

The movie barely opened in theaters (and was cut by the distributor prior to its shabby release), probably because it was sold as a spoof á la Love at First Bite. After a night with mysterious Jennifer Beals, who may or may not be a bloodsucker, Cage deteriorates into a cross between Dwight Frye’s Renfield and Max Schreck’s Nosferatu.

He intimidates and then rapes his frightened secretary (Maria Conchita Alonso); he gobbles pigeons and cockroaches (notoriously, Cage actually ate a live roach on camera); eventually he staggers through the streets with a wooden stake pointed at his heart, begging people to kill him.

For pure, undiluted Cage-osity, 'Vampire’s Kiss' is the film to beat and is a strange, uncommercial, and worthwhile movie in its own right.
