Horror Movies & Sci-Fi Movies Database
Kathleen Conklin was just a normal student attending college. While walking home one night she is dragged off the street and bitten by a strange woman. Soon Kathleen goes from being a normal student to being a vampire. Kathleen's need for blood is similar to a drug addict's need for drugs, and we watch as she goes from one fix to the next.
The dark is their sunlight. What makes them different is what keeps them alive.

More Movie Taglines:
- The dark is their sunlight. What makes them different is what keeps them alive.
- [last lines] Kathleen: To face what we are in the end, we stand before the light and our true nature is revealed. Self-revelation is annihilation of self.
Kathleen Conklin: Dependency is a marvelous thing. It does more for the soul than any formulation of doctoral material.
[Kathleen Conklin is in a library] Kathleen Conklin: Oh, the stench here is worse than a charnel house. This is a graveyard. Rows of crumbling tombstones. Vicious libelous epitaphs. And we're all drawn here like flies.
Kathleen Conklin: You think hell shuts down after a couple of years? You think what you've done isn't, isn't floating around somewhere in space? What makes you think you've been forgiven for lying to your mother as a child, huh? Or of having slept with married men in adultery or paying taxes that turn Central America into a mud puddle, huh?
Peina: You know how long I've been fasting? Forty years. The last time I shot up, I had a dozen and a half in one night. They fall like flies before the hunger, don't they? You can never get enough, can you? But you learn to control it. You learn, like the Tibetans, to survive on a little.
- Shot in twenty days.
Film critic Peter Bradshaw of The Guardian placed the film at #1 in his top ten films of all time (as submitted for the 2002 Sight & Sound Poll)
