Indeed, Tony Scott has... read more

(OK) One the most interesting vampire deviation. Great trio Deneuve, Bowie, Sarandon. More elegance than gore. The best of Tony Scott

Being a vampire never looked more sexy, but there's a price: Bowie starts to age so fast he wrinkles up in the waiting room of a doctor's (Susan Sarandon) office. Deneuve, is a millenniums-old bloodsucker who seeks a new mate in Sarandon and seduces her in a sunlight-bathed afternoon. Tony Scott's directorial debut, adapted from the Whitley Stri ... (more)

TDcore's Horror Journal 2018: Pt. 4 (50 movies items)

" This one is quite different than most vampire films of it's time. It's not a horror comedy, nor does it wallow in the culture of it's time, instead opting to focus on much more cerebral themes like the darker side of love, the loneliness of existence and our obsession with immortality. It's greatest flaw is that it often-times moves a bit too slowly, and the characters can come across as a tad underdeveloped at times. Luckily the acting is pitch perfect from the three main leads, Deneuve, Bowi"
