Movie Review by Movie Addict
March 15th, 2007

An early Grant Classic

Favorite Movie Quote: "Are you into any kind of banging?"

Hugh Grant started his acting career in 1982 (He was Hughie Grant then). After one movie, he went into TV for a few years, and emerged in 1987 with Maurice. He was in seven films in 1988, and this is one of those. Certainly not his greatest role, it is certainly one that is memorable for it's campy fun.

Bram Stoker is best known for Dracula, which has been made into countless films, but this film adaptation of one of his other novels is well worth watching.

Beside Grant, who I will watch in anything, there is the amazing Golden Globe winner Amanda Donohoe (C. J. Lamb from L.A. Law), and Catherine Oxenberg (Amanda Carrington from Dynasty). These two were recently united again in Starship Troopers 3: Marauder.

It also stars Oscar winner Peter Capaldi (Franz Kafka's It's a Wonderful Life).

Besides some really fantastic cars, it has some scenes that are indescribable, and have to be seen to fully appreciate. It's almost like watching the Rocky Horror Picture Show at times.

Donahue was simply stunning as Sylvia and she delivered her lines with charm and wit, and her costuming was slithering skintight and scrumptiously slinky. We could mention that this is a "R" rated film, so there might be some discrete nakedness throughout, some bisexuality, and some Black Widow action as she kills after mating. Does this entice you?
