Overview

The story begins in 1850, when Lilith Silver (Eileen Daley) interrupts a duel between her lover and the nasty Sir Sethane Blake (Christopher Adamson). When she shoots Blake, he just smiles, and punishes her impudence by biting her on the neck when she is shot in turn by his manservant. After a nifty title sequence, the film flashes forward 150 years to watch Silver in modern London, where she hangs out at glitzy vampire bars and works as a mercenary. Lilith's biggest job involves hunting down members of the Illuminati, a sect of freemasons bent on world domination. Their ruler, not coincidentally, is Sir Sethane Blake. Clad in skintight black leather and armed with a coffin full of guns, knives, and throwing-stars, the blood-sucking hit woman uses her supernatural abilities to hunt down her targets and avoid police, at least until Inspector Price (Jonathan Coote) and a forensic scientist nicknamed "the Horror Film Man" (David Warbeck) get on her trail. Visually dazzling and loaded with sex, blood, and macabre humor, Razor Blade Smile uses an array of cinematic techniques to achieve the slick look of a glossy comic book, reminiscent of many Asian efforts in the genre, and quite unlike anything to come out of Britain in recent memory.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Robert Firsching
The late David Warbeck (The Beyond, Blacksnake) made his last film appearance in this hip, flashy vampire action flick starring the beautiful Eileen Daly, best known to cult film buffs as the face of Redemption Video. The cheerfully stylish bloodbath casts Daly as a fanged assassin, alleviating the boredom of her eternal existence by getting decked out in sprayed-on leather and spraying her surroundings with cold, hard steel. The result is funny, sexy, gory, and the most entertaining British vampire film since the days of Hammer Films. Visually dazzling and loaded with sex, blood, and macabre humor, Razor Blade Smile uses an array of cinematic techniques to achieve the slick look of a glossy comic book, reminiscent of many Asian efforts in the genre and quite unlike anything to come out of Britain in recent memory. Daly shines in her first leading role, and as Redemption fans can attest, was born to play a vampire. To put it plainly, she looks terrific (both in and out of costume), and in a movie centered on visual style, that's what it's all about.
