Here’s a random indie horror flick I found and decided to give it a shot after hearing it was pretty entertaining. After viewing I will tell you this…this is pretty damn funny! Not the slapstick “Evil Dead II” type funny, but a very witty and dark type of funny, which I always enjoy!
This film stars Jason Mewes(who was in the epic flick “Feast”) as a lonely paramedic stationed in the crack pipe infested ghetto where his main and only excitement is bringing back people from overdoses. One night on his way home he finds a beautiful girl laying in his alley, covered in blood. Assuming she’s a crack addict who was assaulted/raped, he offers to take her to the hospital. She however refuses to go, so he decides to keep her in his apartment and nurse her back to health. Unfortunately for him, the blood she was covered in was not hers. Why? Because she is a vampire! He doesn’t notice this at first because her blood drinking withdrawal symptoms mimic those of a crack addicts withdrawal symptoms, so he assumes she is just needing a “fix”. But when he soon figures out what kind of “fix” she needs, we are lead on an a hilarious roller coaster about the battles faced when a mortal tries to date a vampire.
I really loved the humor provided by “Roger”(our lead character’s boss) in this film. He’s basically an old disrespectful horny dude, which is always funny to watch. The overall witty humor in this film actually made me laugh out loud quite a few times, which is not very common with horror flicks. I also really enjoyed the gore in this film, I wasn’t extremely gory, but we do see a good amount of blood and kills. Theres also some pretty freakin awesome sex scenes involving out lead actress, and vampire, Erica Cox(no pun intended on her last mame).
Of course this is a pretty independent film, so there is a lot of improvement that can be done. We see some scenes that are quite cheesy, and Erica Cox’s “psychotic” acting was pretty lame and cheesy itself. But what the hell? This film is meant to be enjoyed. End of story.
Overall, this is a fun film to watch with your buddies on a boring night. Be sure and give this one a watch, if you can find it.
