This film comes under the heading of Non-traditional vampire films.
We open with a man who is bleeding to death but trying to get his story out there. We follow what is the longest flashback (movie is booked with the guy printing his newspaper and his reader) where we are introduced to all the major characters at this sex club carnival.
A stage magician who has drugged our lead actor then becomes the focus in a string of murders.
How does this come into the class of a vampire? The mind control. Everyone of the main characters is feeding off of the confusion and greed of someone else in the film. This film stars Crispin Glover, Jeffery Combs, Josh Miller (from Near Dark) and Brad Dourif.
