Movie Info

An uneven but entertaining blend of graphic horror and black comedy from John Landis, very much in the mode of the director's successful An American Werewolf in London. French actress Anne Parillaud -- star of Luc Besson's acclaimed thriller La Femme Nikita -- plays Marie, a lithe and lovely vampire with a conscience who will not take "innocent blood" and maintains a low profile by dining exclusively on criminals and lowlifes. She finds a virtual smorgasbord in Pittsburgh's criminal underworld,

Regrettably, all too often the tone lurches from stylish suspense to smart-ass in-jokiness and silly slapstick.

[An] overlong, overproduced spectacle.

Innocent Blood is an uncomfortable marriage of vampires and mobsters; it doesn't work on either the supernatural or the criminal level.

Like one of the victims, Innocent Blood feels about five quarts low.

Cameo appearances by terror icons Dario Argento, Sam Raimi, and Tom Savini help make Innocent Blood a hoot for horror fans, but you don't have to be a gorehound or a vampire lover to get a kick out of the film's virulent mix of guts and guffaws.

July 7, 2010 Full Review Source: Georgia Straight

It lacks the bite (so to speak) of the classics in this genre, but is a stylish blend of cool black comedy and obvious gore.

The incessant shots of old, and better, vampire movies on the various characters' TVs become distracting and annoying.

A stupid, badly paced horror-comedy that's not funny, scary or suspenseful. A dog.

A fitting follow-up to American Werewolf

Not for all tastes, but a wild ride if you get into it.

Pretty fair vampire film suffering from Landis' usual over-producing.

It loses steam and coherence about midway through, leaving us rooting for it but doomed to disappointment.

This anemic vampire tale boasts an interesting premise but suffers from lethargic pacing and an overdose of splatter special effects.

Audience Reviews for Innocent Blood

A kind of partner or sequel almost to his mighty werewolf flick, Landis' movie is underrated and a truly thrilling ride. The idea is a nice take on the vamp line but the word vampire is never used in the whole film, it is about vampires but not officially for some reason. Like 'Werewolf' the effects are really good, even now compared to cgi, the eye effects look cool and the finale effects on the baddie look great as well. Think of it as a mafia vamp flick :)

Innocent Blood is a movie I just can't stand. I know it's not trying to be great, but it's so bad I had trouble making it through the whole thing. John Landis has made good movies that I've really liked, so it's weird I hate this so much. The whole vampires-mob plot was just a little too much.

Chic French beauty Anne Parillaud is possibly the best reason to watch this romantic comedy/thriller but all horror buffs will love it for the endless in-jokes and clips from the classic Dracula films.

French actress Anne Parillaud's cool as a vampire who wants occassional bad guy to sink her fangs. She's a bit hotter in naked & sex scenes.
