Movie Info

Most people prefer coffee with their pastry, but then, most people aren't Canadian vampires trapped in an all-night donut shop. The aforementioned bloodsucker is Boya, who has spent the past 26 years safely wrapped up and sleeping inside a garbage bag. Someone accidentally wakes him up and Boya groggily falls into Earl's cab and finds himself a cheap hotel across from Bernie's Doughnut Shop, Earl's favorite haunt. Earl has the hots for waitress Molly. Meanwhile, Boya struggles to find himself a bite to eat. While pursuing a rat, he inadvertently saves Earl from muggers. Later, his old girlfriend shows up. She is terribly angry because Boya refused to make her a vampire, too.

Audience Reviews for Blood & Donuts

½

Stupid-Good Movie: Seldom does Hollywood's easel of superfluous story-replays, succeed in escaping viewers' acumen. This movie is such a relief from the dull rehashing of tales masquerading as innovative brilliance, arrogantly assuming easy audience acceptance. This story is truly imaginative. This movie is a fun frolic through a donut shop - by a vampire - and some donut shop girl. Is this your typical poorly written script trying to come across as serious scary-theater - - - NO Way. It's poorly written and not trying to fool anyone. Are the actors trying to be serious? You have got to be kidding me. NO Way. Come on! This is a story about donuts and vampires. This flick is cheese with a capital 'C'. In no way are they trying to hide the cheese - it is melted all over the edges. There is no quasi-serious-actor - the flick is one big joke - and the cast is very well aware of it. With all this being said, I enjoyed this bit of entertainment - most brilliant in every aspect. Even as background noise, 'Blood and Donuts', was well worth the time. Rent it - watch it - and devour it.

A quirky Canadian curiosity that is an oddly unsatisfying film, where the elements of the vampire film and the non-commercial approach of an indie film never adequately congeal together.

Moments of originality can't help this dull film and it's non-existent story keep anyone's attention for more than five minutes.
