Innocent Blood ★★ 1992 (R)

A mediocre modern-day vampire/gangster combo with the beautiful (though redeyed) Parillaud as the woman with a taste for someone “Italian.” Unfortunately, she doesn't finish off her latest meal—mobster Loggia—who finds being undead very useful to his vicious work. LaPaglia plays the bewildered, love-struck cop involved with the vamp. Parillaud appears nude in several scenes and the gore and violence are stomach-turning. 112m/C VHS, DVD .
