Not of This Earth ★★ 1996 (R)

Corman remake of his own 1957 cheapie is both camp and sexy. Sunglass-wearing mystery millionaire Paul Johnson (York) apparently suffers from a rare condition and must have constant blood transfusions, so he hires a sexy live-in nurse (Barondes) to be at his beck-and-call. Yes, he does turn out to be a vampire but of the space alien-with-telepathic-powers variety who has a particular purpose for coming to earth. 92m/C VHS, DVD . Michael York, Elizabeth Barondes, Richard Belzer, Parker Stevenson; D: Terence H. Winkless; W: Charles Philip Moore. CABLE
