  • Director Tony Scott's cult classic tells the story of Miriam (Catherine Denueve) and John (David Bowie), an elegant couple with a dark secret: they are vampires. Feeding on human blood, Miriam has lived for over 2000 years. Taking John as her lover, she gave him the gift of eternal life as well. Together, the beautiful Miriam and dapper John teach music by day and feed on innocent humans by night, disposing of their remains in the incinerator of their well-appointed townhouse. When John begins aging rapidly, he seeks the help of Dr. Sarah Roberts (Susan Sarandon), a specialist in premature aging. Miriam is immediately drawn to Sarah, desiring her as her next immortal companion. Sarah, unable to deny her attraction to Miriam, ends up in her bed and is consequently forced to choose between her mortal life and eternal life. Deneuve is remarkable as the beautiful but anguished Miriam, and Bowie is astonishing as he ages hundreds of years in a matter of hours, all of the seconds that he has lived catching up with him at once. Watch for Ann Magnuson in her film debut, and Willem Dafoe in his first credited speaking role.

    "...This modern vampire story looks so great, as do its three principal performers, and is so bizarre that it possesses a certain perverse appeal..."
    Variety

    "[A] sleek, kinky vampire-chic exercise..."
