"Bela Lugosi's Dead ... Undead"
4 stars

Cult vampire flick featuring an opening interlude by the seminal gothic/rock band Bauhaus and living legends David Bowie and Catherine Deneuve. Steamy undead erotica and a few drops of blood, simmer and wait.

John and Miriam Blaylock have an interesting secret. Such accomplished musicians, so graceful and mysterious. Everything is picturesque and ideal for the Blaylocks until John begins to age fast and the unwinding of a centuries old story sucks in the innocent Sarah Roberts (Susan Sarandon).

Artsy and erotic with an enduring edgy and hip sensibility. A must see for all wannabe goths.

This is a vampire movie that left the widow's peak and fangs in wardrobe and embodied the sensibility of the erudition and sophistication that centuries of a heightened aesthetic sensibility would have on a creature doomed to walk the night for all eternity feeding off the lifeforce of the living because they can generate none of their own.

Lesbian vampire sex. Melancholy cello solos. And a story that keeps pace with the opportunity to simply revel in the gorgeousness of the cast and the aching, haunting, blissful, passionate, violent and agonizing moments they live.
