Trama e commenti: cinematografo.it - mymovies.it - film.spettacolo.virgilio.it - kataweb.it: «Dura la vita per un vampiro di oggi a Manhattan. Tale crede di essere un giovane agente letterario, yuppie reaganiano in cura da una psicanalista. Vampirizza in tutti i sensi la segretaria, mangia scarafaggi, si compra due canini lucenti e va in giro con occhialoni per proteggersi dal sole. Occorre il paletto. Scritta da Joe Minion (Fuori orario di Scorsese), č una commedia vampirica riuscita a metą: meglio la seconda parte. Ora divertente, ora sgradevole, con un'apprezzabile rinuncia agli effetti speciali e un N. Cage simpatico, ma sopra le righe».
Plot Summary, Synopsis, Review: IMDb - allmovie.com - vampyres-online.com - minuitsang.over-blog.com - dvdcritiques.com - notrecinema.com - entertainment.msn.com - teleline.es/personal - tvguide.com: «Peter Loew (Nicolas Cage) is an affected, self-centered literary agent living in New York, and his life is the usual mess. In therapy because he doesn't understand why his love life--a series of one-night stands--isn't making him happy, he takes out his frustration on his high-strung secretary, Alva (Maria Conchita Alonso). Full of spite, Loew assigns Alva a pointless, time-consuming project, then berates her mercilessly for her failure to complete it quickly. But Loew's petty problems come to an abrupt halt when he picks up Rachel (Jennifer Beals), a beguiling beauty who just may be a vampire. After he has been bitten by Rachel, Loew becomes convinced he is turning into a blood drinker. His smokey-voiced therapist (Elizabeth Ashley) thinks Peter is just projecting, but Alva--reduced to quivering terror whenever Loew comes into the office--isn't so sure. She confides her fears to her brother and tries to stay home from work, but her practical mother will have none of it; work is just one of those things you have to deal with, Mom reasons, and bad bosses go with the territory. But Alva is convinced that even if he isn't a vampire, Peter Loew is the true Boss from Hell. Loew's behavior degenerates rapidly: he eats bugs and pigeons, blacks out his windows, wears sunglasses day and night, indoors and out, constructs a makeshift coffin for himself, and dreams of the exotic Rachel. Tortured by the need to know for sure if he's a vampire and aware that Alva carries a gun, Loew tries to prompt his secretary to shoot him; he threatens to rape her, and Alva fires at him point blank. Since Loew doesn't feel a thing, he's now convinced of his vampirism. Making his way to a trendy club, he selects his first victim. After tearing out her throat and drinking her blood, he returns home bloodied and bedraggled, ignored by jaded passers-by. But surprise: Alva's brother is waiting, and dispatches Loew with a stake through the heart...».
