Format: DVD
Nicholas Cage is absolutely superb as the literary agent who suffers a catastrophic breakdown and becomes delusional, believing himself to have been seduced and bitten by a vampire, and undergoes a psychosomatic transformation into nosferatu.

Cage's character's personality, which begins as an arrogant, successful bully of a manager, gradually becomes one of an unhinged loon as his bullying - in particular the painfully nasty persecution of his beautiful hispanic assistant Alba - reaches a crescendo and he begins to mimic nosferatu's mannerisms whilst wearing plastic teeth.

His vampiric seductress visits him regulary to reinforce his delusions. His relationship with his lovely girlfriend begins to break down completely as he is lured ever more deeply into the world of the vampiress in his mind. Finally when he believes he can no longer see his own reflection in a mirror, he becomes as one with the vampiress and steps out of reality completely.

This film has one or two shocking moments, and some of it is also very sad; his treatment of his girlfriend, and in particular the diabolical treatment of his persecuted assistant Alba, are cases in point. But it is also a very funny black comedy, helped along by Cage's repertoire of facial expressions and affected accents.

If Alan Partridge were to become a vampire, I suspect it would look something like this.

Oh boy, where does one start with this? Watching Vampire's Kiss has to be one of the most entertaining experiences of my life so far. It is pretty horrible in places and weird with a capital W, and that's what makes this film hilarious.

The film revolves around Peter Loew (portrayed by Nicolas Cage with a bizarre accent and slicked-back haircut that gets crazier as the film progresses), a literary agent who gets bitten by a vampire after a night out; he is established to have mental health issues at the beginning of the film, and he slowly loses his mind as he realises that he is turning into a vampire. By the end, he is beyond all hope as he finally snaps and descends into insanity. I am aware that Cage is famous/infamous for playing wacky characters, but his performance here makes films like The Wicker Man seem somewhat tame in comparison.

This links in with the sub-plot of Loew's agency trying to find an elusive Der Spiegel contract. The lack of results regarding this makes him angrier (he communicates his frustration to his psychiatrist by screaming the alphabet!) and he vents the brunt of his anger at his secretary Alva (quite sweetly portrayed by Maria Conchita Alonso), to whom he gave this unenviable task. I will not reveal anything about what he does to her, but you will be appalled by the way that he mercilessly bullies the poor woman.

I don't want to say what his antics include, as I do not want to spoil the magic. All I will say is that, even by his standards, this is a crazy, bizarre and incredibly over-the-top performance from the master of Nouveau Shamanic, and this is what makes Vampire's Kiss such a joy to watch. Do not miss this!

First of all, if you're hoping to see an actually credible or decent movie you will no doubt be disappointed.

If on the other hand, you are looking forward to Nicolas Cage not simply chewing the scenery but sitting down for a four hour all-you-can-eat scenery buffet then this is the film for you! This is not the mumbled monotone Cage from Con Air or Bangkok Dangerous but Wicker Man Cage amplified by 100.

If you have ever wanted to see a man scream the entire alphabet on film (and who wouldn't want to see Nicolas Cage do that?) then this is for you.

By M. D. Hart VINE VOICE on 6 Jun. 2006
Format: DVD
The central story here surrounds that of Peter Loew (Cage) who is a literary agent and serial womaniser. When one of his conquests bites him on the neck he begins to believe that he is a vampire and acts the part by rejecting sunlight and avoiding the crucifix. As ridiculous as this sounds, the film really does do a good job of setting up the psychological decline of an already disturbed soul. To be honest you will need to watch this more than once in order to understand the semi-existant nature of the woman that bites Loew and not until the very end will you understand the twist, but if you buy this film for anything buy it for Cage's performance. Made in 1989 this film is one of Cage's earlier efforts and he is superbly funny in a dark way; the scene in the night club where he wears plastic vampire teeth will make you laugh to no end, if not for the story just the strange change in what we are used to from Nic. Supporting cast are fine too but they really do feed off of Cage and rely on him heavily. luckily for them he keeps up the tempo and pulls off the psychology really well, constructing a coffin for himself our of an up-turned leather sofa balanced on books along the way. Do not mistake the fun for a lack of seriousness, Cage's charcater is seriously disturbed and resorts to murder, rape and wickedness throught what is a very erotically charged narrative so if these elements disturb you, maybe this isn't the film for you. For the Cage fans out there, you must buy this. The lost fifth star is for a disappointingly rushed ending, but overall worth a long look.
