After the car spins around very unrealistically, the scenery directly in front of the car is obviously a painted backdrop. In addition to all the objects ahead clearly being a painting, the other giveaway is how the "scenery" meets the roadway. See more »
Despite the presence of the ludicrous Grace Jones, this is an amusing and cleverly made vampire comedy. It will strike some at first as just another dumb college caper flick, but it's weird visuals and genuinely funny moments puts it into a different and altogether superior category. Most of the film is set at night, in and around a sinister strip-club, and the pink and green neon lighting is quite unlike anything you've ever seen in a movie before. Furthermore the brilliantly constructed final shot as the credits roll is a very satisfying conclusion. Story-wise it is quite stupid, but there's more than enough frights and one-liners to keep it moving along.
