Revisiting Nicolas Cage’s First Brush With Horror in ‘Vampire’s Kiss’

Nicolas Cage is in the midst of a sort of horror renaissance. Not that the prolific actor ever strayed far from any particular genre, churning out multiple films a year that run the gamut, but it’s in horror that he’s received praise and reappraisal thanks to films like Mandy and Color Out of Space.

With recent announcements of Wally’s Wonderland, where he’ll take on demonic animatronics, his work in horror doesn’t appear to be slowing down. For all of the grandeur performances the actor has delivered in his career, his turn as Peter Loew in Vampire’s Kiss doesn’t get near as much consideration as it should. If you were to meet somewhere at the intersection of American Psycho and Martin, you’d likely find this cult gem.
