Did You Know?

Peter's strange accent is supposed to be a fake accent used by the character because he thinks he sounds more "elegant" and "smarter" (hence the literary agent job). The accent comes and goes throughout the movie and is more prominent when trying to impress people, and less in scenes with people like the psychiatrist.

Revealing mistakes: During the sex scenes between Rachel and Peter in Peter's bed, they are both wearing exactly the same clothes (underwear), indicating that both scenes were filmed at the same time.

Peter Loew: [as he runs down the sidewalk of residential part of town] I'm a vampire! I'm a vampire! I'm a vampire!

User Review

The plot summary has it ALL WRONG

Rating: 10/10

This movie is NOT about vampires; there isn't a single vampire in it. Instead, it is about a man (played by Cage) who loses his mind and begins to think he is a vampire after an unsatisfying series of one-night stands that make him feel empty. It's a metaphor about relationships, and this is one fantastic black comedy. Check it out and thank me later.
