She tries to get rid of him with a wellplaced kick between his legs. But that turns out to be ineffective. On the contrary, he asks her to escort him on a nightly journey through the town. The young stranger (Cyril O'Reilly) has a magic attraction on her. Jodi has fallen in love with him. Clasped in a firm embrace, they stand in front of a shop window, when she suddenly gets in a panic: there's only her own reflection! Her young lover is a vampire, only out for her blood. He takes her to his home, where passion overwhelms her fear, and they indulge in their sexuall desire. At the very moment when the vampire's fangs are to sink into her neck, she revives. She flees to the bathroom and tears the covering from the windows. Bright sunlight floods the room, while the vampire desperately tries to break open the bathroom door... Good idea: he's a vampire (of course) and walks into this strip-joint, where he meets Jodi, a dancer. He asks her to follow him to his home so they could talk through the night. At his home he reveals to her that he's a vampire and that he's about to kill her at dawn. But till then, they will have to talk about the sunlight he never felt, about loneliness and death and some more topics. After that, a lot of talking follows with not too much action till the final scenes, where you find him chasing her through the house. That reminds me a lot of Abel Ferrara's The Addiction, and it's well done. A nice feature is that the camera is occasionaly viewing the scenery through the vampire's eyes and the whole picture then is filmed in dimmed violet colours. It's another low-budget movie, but one worth watching».
