a love story. with an impressively high body count.
the cast was terrific, the practical effects were great, the ending was satisfying; this movie just needs to find it's audience.
so, this is kind of nuts. it's an r rated comedy horror that gets a little crazy toward the end and honestly, i don't understand why people are so down on this movie. this is exactly the hellboy i wanted to see.
so, some thoughts on 'vampire's kiss,' the 1988 nic cage movie. (spoilers) there are three distinct levels of acting/drama and they unbalanced the movie for me. there's cage, who's character is so over the top (and, well, badly acted.) that he constantly takes you out of the movie, (except for the last half hour or so.) there's jennifer beals vampire who's exaggerated but skillfully played and then there's maria conchita alonso's office worker who's tormented and then raped by cages character. and that's a purely dramatic role. and i just couldn't get the two story lines to mesh. (like, was cage's character tormenting alonso's character because of the vampire delusion? or was it something else?) the movie also seems very racist. there are two white, female characters; the vampire and the psychologist; and they both have power and influence over cage's loew, and there are two non-white female characters; the girlfriend and the office worker; and they're both treated badly and abused by him. all in all it just seems a very odd film to me. 🤔
