Overview

The life of white-collar New Yorker Peter (Nicolas Cage) seems to revolve solely around making as much money and sleeping with as many women as possible. After a typical night of scouring trendy bars for some action, Peter manages to take home the alluring Rachel (Jennifer Beals), who bites him on the neck while they’re in bed. The next day, Peter is certain he is now a vampire. Though no one shares his point of view and he hasn’t changed physically, he dons fake fangs and begins stalking women.

Why You Should See This Film

Nicolas Cage is not an actor renowned for his subtlety or naturalism, but ooh boy, he really goes for it here. Delivering a hyper-surreal performance that’s part Nosferatu, part Bill Murray in Scrooged, he’s like a creature from another planet, and we’re very much here for it. Also, this film scores major props for the cameo by funk legends ESG in one of the opening scenes.

The World Is a Vampire: A Bloody Shiraz Gin & Film Festival

Crawl out of your crypt and join our friends at Four Pillars Gin for The World Is a Vampire: A Bloody Shiraz Gin & Film Festival this winter. Throughout August, we’re bringing you a season of vampires so hot, you’d never guess their blood runs cold.

Spanning five weeks, the series ventures from A Date with Dracula (What We Do in the Shadows, Bram Stoker’s Dracula), The Vampire Chronicles (Interview with the Vampire, Queen of the Damned), Undead Icons (The Hunger, Vampire’s Kiss), Bloodsucking Blockbusters (From Dusk Till Dawn, Blade), all the way to Modern Vamps (Only Lovers Left Alive, A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night).

And of course, each week gets a Bloody Shiraz Gin cocktail to match. For The Hunger and Vampire’s Kiss we'll be serving our Supposed Transformation, a potion of Four Pillars Bloody Shiraz Gin, egg whites and lemon juice with white chocolate, nutmeg and raspberry.
