This movie came out in 1979 and captures that time period in New York with fang like sharpness. Okay, maybe that’s a stretch, but unlike many of the other movies we’ve discussed on this podcast, this one does not smell like the Volga river at low tide.
Yes this is a comedy but as we uncover it is so much more. It is about a middle aged man, er vampire, seeking relevance. It’s about a woman learning to embrace commitment.

Jim does not disappoint, going on a tangent about how today’s culture is intent on defanging the vampires, strapping Invisalign on them, and taking away any appeal that an alpha male has. Yes, in Jim’s mind there’s a war on masculinity and it’s always fun to hear him rant about it.
So sit back, relax, give yourself a generous pour of some Type O Negative and enjoy our take on Love at First Bite.
