Slick alternate approach to a vampire story.
Steven snares women, then bleeds them dry. By the time someone catches up to one, he's on to the next.
The film opens with a car in a tree with copious blood flowing out of it. This was a former girl friend of Steven's.
Steven prevents a woman, Maria, from committing suicide, then romances her. Later he dumps her body in some quicksand. The body is found by a Spanish fisher. Steven gets a visit from the police.
Anne Labels is a structural engineer whom Steven meets at a museum.
Steven saves the inspector from a gang. The gang re-appears later while Steven is with Anne; the leader means to use her. Steven beats up the other four gang members and gets Anne away from the leader. He subdues the leader; she returns with a weapon; they leave more or less unscathed.
The police bring him in for more interviews.
The police give up for a time when the inspector learns from Maria's friends that she was contemplating suicide and that Steven prevented it. Steven returns the crucifix that the gang leader stole from the inspector at their first meeting.
Steven falls in love with Anne. He needs her blood, but he cannot do it.
Such a quandary.
