Movie of the Day – Vampire’s Kiss

Posted on the 26 May 2012 by Plotdevice39 @PlotDevices

I love watching Nic Cage lose his shit while acting.  There is this pure, manic, unbridled insanity that comes through his acting when he doesn’t have any restraints placed on him.  Sure, he has his hits and misses, but even his misses are pure magic, the kind that would get you put to death in 1800′s for being possessed.  While I could do a top list on the best Cage freakouts on screen (Ed Note: it will happen soon), I decided I just want to do a quick post over one movie that pretty much encapsulates the essence of cage.  The movie today is Vampire’s Kiss and if you have never seen this movie, you are in for something spectacular.

Movie of the Day – Vampire’s Kiss

Vampire’s Kiss follows the story of yuppie literary agent Peter Loew (Nicolas Cage) as he descends into madness and vampirism. Loew believes he has been bitten by a vampire (Jennifer Beals) and is slowly becoming one himself, despite the contrary opinion of his therapist (Elizabeth Ashley). He then begins to wage a campaign of escalating terror against his secretary and first potential victim, Alva (Maria Conchita Alonso, looking appropriately baffled). Alva begs her parents to let her stay home from work to avoid her unusual boss, but they force her to go on that fateful day, and the plot unfolds. Vampire’s Kiss became a cult item on the basis of Cage’s outrageous performance: at one point he actually eats a live cockroach. ~ Jeremy Beday, Rovi

God, I couldn’t even remember the plot line for this movie until looking it up.  Wow, insane doesn’t even begin to fully describe this flick and personally, I won’t even begin to dive into the film.  All I am going to say is that if you love Nic Cage movies, particularly batshit insane ones, just go watch this movie in its entirety.  If you can’t do that, just check out the best of clip show of the movie below.  This is Nic Cage left off the chain and running amok in a film that throws nuance and subtlety out of the window.
