Vampire’s Kiss
Blu-ray
Director: Robert Bierman
Screenwriter: Joseph Minion
Cast: Nicolas Cage, María Conchita Alonso, Jennifer Beals
Scream Factory
Rated R | 103 Minutes
Release Date: February 10, 2015

Synopsis: Teetering on the edge of sanity, volatile literary agent Peter Loew (Nicolas Cage) tries to find purpose in his life through a cutthroat work ethic and a hedonistic night life. But when an encounter with a mysterious beauty leaves Loew convinced that he is turning into a vampire, his behavior turns positively outrageous.

Robert Bierman was originally scheduled to direct the 1986 remake of The Fly, but withdrew from the project after the death of his daughter. Instead, Bierman’s feature-length debut was the 1989 black comedy, Vampire’s Kiss.

Imagine if you will, a young Nicolas Cage (hot off Raising Arizona and Moonstruck) in a business suit and plastic vampire fangs, screaming, “I’m a vampire! I’m a vampire!” That pretty much sums up this bizarre, coked-out horror comedy. Even if you’ve never seen Bierman’s film, you probably know bits and pieces of it, thanks to YouTube’s impressive selection of “Nicolas Cage Losing His Shit” montages.
