Sucker: The Vampire Review

CALIFORNIA.  The land of sand, surf, and STD’s.  Everyone already knows that all California residents over the age of 10 have contracted some sort of sexual virus.  But even the local vampires?

That is the fate of one nightly bloodsucker named Anthony, who is also the lead singer of the up-and-coming band called Plasma.  He uses his rock star status to lure hot, big-breasted groupies back to his lair.  Sounds like the perfect setup, but…maybe he shoulda put a condom on them fangs.

Part dark satire, part horror-comedy, and part erotic-thriller, this had potential to be one of the greatest vampire flicks ever made.  Seriously.  I expected a campy gorefest, but that is not the case.  The script is clever, the acting is solid, and there are some totally top-notch sex scenes mixed with blood spillage.  Good times.

But unfortunately, the news of the AIDS virus puts a damper on the fun (imagine that).  I lost a little interest as the story winded down.  Still this is one of the best Troma movies around, and a very solid entry into any vampire DVD collection.
