Bordello of Blood

BORDELLO OF BLOOD (1996)

Notes:
Starring Dennis Miller, Angie Everhart, Erika Eleniak, Corey Feldman,Chris Sarandon.


Summary: Katherine hires private dick Rafe Guttman tofind her errant brother. Guttman follows a trail to a funeralparlor/bordello/vampire haven, which is run by heart-eating (literally)Lilith, the “most evil woman to ever live.” Will hesolve the mystery and emerge with his heart intact?


Commentary:
Dialogue: Campy humor at its best.
Vampires: Traditional or Not? Not. Lilith likes to eathearts of male victims (but only omnivores, mind you) and onlysucks the blood of her future employees. She has an exceptionallylong tongue, with which she performs interesting tricks.
Vampires: Physical Appeal? Lilith, played by Angie Everhart,is supermodel perfect (literally, again). The vampy bordellobabes are temptingly titillating, and usually topless. ThinkPlayboy bunnies with fangs.
Gore Factor: If you don’t mind seeing beating hearts pulledout of victims’ chests, then you’ll be fine with this movie.
Scariness/Suspense: More humorous than scary, until thevery end, which you’ll have to see for yourself. (Disclaimer: This is not an endorsement of the film!)
Target Audience: Tales from the Crypt diehardsand horny young males will find this a pleasurable romp throughthe realm of the undead.
