Full Plot

Maximillian is the only survivor from a race of vampires on a Caribbean Island, and as a vampire, he must find a mate to keep the line from ending. He knows that a child had been born to a woman who had a vampire father, and he searches for her in Brooklyn. Rita's mother, who has died in an asylum, was that woman and Rita has nightmares that she does not understand. Not knowing that she is part vampire, Max woos her and attempts to bring her to her blood sucking destiny. Even though Rita has strange dreams and actions, Justice, her partner, has feelings for her and does not want her involved with this stranger Max. But it is Rita who must decide her destiny.

- 'Sonja Davis' (qv), 'Angela Bassett' (qv)'s stunt double, died in an accident on the set.

- On "The Directors" (2007), 'Wes Craven' (qv) suggested that 'Eddie Murphy (I)' (qv) ignored his requests to play the character vulnerable, and felt compelled to showcase his comedic talents.

- In a November 2011 interview with "Rolling Stone", 'Eddie Murphy (I)' (qv) stated that he made this movie for one reason: Paramount agreed to release "The Nutty Professor"'s rights in exchange for finishing his deal with the studio.
