Innocent Blood

Overview

An uneven but entertaining blend of graphic horror and black comedy from John Landis, very much in the mode of the director's successful An American Werewolf in London. French actress Anne Parillaud -- star of Luc Besson's acclaimed thriller La Femme Nikita -- plays Marie, a lithe and lovely vampire with a conscience who will not take "innocent blood" and maintains a low profile by dining exclusively on criminals and lowlifes. She finds a virtual smorgasbord in Pittsburgh's criminal underworld, arriving in the ...

Overview

An uneven but entertaining blend of graphic horror and black comedy from John Landis, very much in the mode of the director's successful An American Werewolf in London. French actress Anne Parillaud -- star of Luc Besson's acclaimed thriller La Femme Nikita -- plays Marie, a lithe and lovely vampire with a conscience who will not take "innocent blood" and maintains a low profile by dining exclusively on criminals and lowlifes. She finds a virtual smorgasbord in Pittsburgh's criminal underworld, arriving in the thick of a bloody mob war sparked by ruthless kingpin Sal Macelli Robert Loggia. After preying on one of Macelli's hoods Chazz Palminteri, Marie fumbles her attack on the boss himself and he manages to escape, eventually transforming into a vampire himself. Macelli soon comes to appreciate his new superhuman condition and hatches a diabolical scheme to control the syndicates by turning his underlings into vampires -- including his beleaguered lawyer, Emmanuel Bergman Don Rickles. Marie, faced with a new and powerful undead enemy, is forced to take matters into her own claws. To this end she enlists the reluctant aid and eventual affection of undercover cop Joe Gennaro Anthony LaPaglia, whose cover has just been leaked to the press, making him a target for Macelli and his growing army of blood drinkers. Landis has crafted a dark and brooding film, pumped up with bouts of extreme gore and gangland violence -- but where American Werewolf's occasional comic touches helped to ground the story and give the "straight" horror scenes more punch, most attempts at humor here seem jarring and out of place. The film's highlights come from numerous horror in-jokes, including cameos from Sam Raimi, Clive Barker, Dario Argento and Linnea Quigley; Rickles' explosive death scene ranks among the weirdest in cinema history.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
Some directors don't aspire to anything other than to be good showmen. John Landis, his films crammed with references to his idols and powered by an energy that seeks to entertain above all else, is one of Hollywood's most infectious storytellers. Innocent Blood combines two of his greatest strengths, horror and comedy, with a dash of a mob spoof thrown in the cast contains many future The Sopranos players. Against a Pittsburgh backdrop, it features cameos by Dario Argento and Sam Raimi George Romero was sick on his cameo-shooting day, Don Rickles melting, and a charming French vampiress Anne Parillaud who bites Chazz Palminteri because "he annoyed me." The cast is game, the story is pleasingly modest, and the script is loaded with entertaining one-liners; and the entire production has fun playing with the idea of a mob inundated with the undead. Landis has called this film his "guilty pleasure." It's nowhere near as accomplished as Ghostbusters and Men in Black as far as comedy thrillers go, but with a guiding principal that's more goofy than scary, it's nonetheless a thoroughly enjoyable popcorn movie.
