User Reviews

possibly the best disco vampire movie around...
20 November 1999 | by shaun jSee all my reviews

Supremely trashy 'disco vampire' film. Worth watching for Nai Bonet's bathroom scene - UNBELIEVABLE! Since she wrote this one, it's narcissism of the highest order. You won't believe your eyes!!! Also worth watching for that great disco band.
