Jennifer Beals and Nicolas Cage in Vampire’s Kiss

 plays a literary agent with a bad attitude towards everyone except his kindly and understanding therapist.  He cats around with  until their fun times are interrupted by the intrusion of a bat in their bedroom.  When his next conquest, , bites him on the neck, he begins to transform into a bloodsucker who berates his secretary () about a missing file (I’m not joking) and goes out in search of more victims.  Is he actually a vampire and is this a supernatural tale, or is there reason to believe we have fallen into the rabbit hole of a disturbed man’s madness?  I think I know what this movie is about, I can find a logic that suits me, but between Cage’s loco accent and some really dull writing it seems clear that either no one told him that this is a psychological drama or no one told his director that this is supposed to be a comedy.  It’s unwatchable either way, a film that doesn’t even yield rewards for its lack of quality by being hilariously bad.
