A compelling little horror film, which is also a social metaphor about youthful angst. Young Martin (John Amplas) is a mentally disturbed teen, who believes he's a vampire. Living with a deranged relative, who also believes Amplas is a vampire, doesn't help his social life much. After frequent calls to a local talk radio show, he becomes something of a celebrity with the midnight crowd.

George Romero (Night of the Living Dead) made an astonishing sleeper, and is helped along by a great cast. Young Amplas is superb in the title role. Romero has a funny cameo as an unconventional priest. Warning to the squeamish! This contains quite a bit of stomach-churning violence, so if this isn't your cup of tea, I don't recommend it to you. This is perfect for people that like extremely black humor. My type of film!
