A+ B Movies

Hello, kiddies! Well, I want to tell you about another odd, little known B-movie. Innocent Blood is a movie that, like the Prophecy, has a little bit of everything: vampires, mafia, undercover cops, an extremely explicit sex scene, 'polsions, "mood eyes," slapstick, a human torch, and one petite french-chick with an weird accent. Basically, there's this hot vampire that feeds on criminals, but she screws up and vampifies a mob boss--a mob boss that the undercover cop is after. So, they team-up and hilarity ensues. The tagline, believe it or not, slaps the "comedy" label on this story, which, put aside that I think all horror films are inherently funny, is a big stretch. Here's what's really funny, the show has tons of famous people in little roles: Angela Bassett, Don Rickles, Chazz Palminteri, and even a cameo from Frank Oz--and SAM RAIMI. You gotta love any guy that take a short 8mm film and turn it into a career that gives us Spider-Man. Landis, of American Werewolf in London fame, directed this movie, which means that it is probably a good thing there aren't any commentaries.
