In 1994, in Toronto, the vampire Boya awakens from his twenty-five years of sleep in a basement hit by a golf ball. He takes a cab to the local cemetery, retrieves his belongings from a grave and lodges in a low budget hotel nearby an all-night donut shop. Boya does not drink human blood anymore but rats and pigeons blood instead. While in the donut shop, Boya befriends and protects the taxi driver Earl, who is having trouble with two criminals, and falls in love for the waitress Molly. Meanwhile, his former passion of 1969, Rita, who misses her lost youth, is trying to locate him. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Donuts will make you fat!
22 September 2019 | by dugfmjamulSee all my reviews

It's 1:00 Am in the morning and why am I watching this movie?

Because it's strange, weird and different, and good..it's entertaining.

I have seen almost every Vampire move ever made... really....most of them suck...but this one is worth watching.

I do like the Jessica Jones lookalike and the actor who sounds like Christopher Watkins ...they help make the move worth watching.
