Release Date: 1992
There have been a few unrelated vampire films with the title Love Bites. There was the wonderfully black comedy of the 2001 movie and then there was the vehicle for eighties pop musician Adam Ant which was the 1993 movie. This flick, released in 1992, was an openly gay vampire movie.
Now, it is low budget but it is, in parts, genuinely funny and deliberately so as the cast take virtually every gay stereotype, make it their own and throw it at the camera. It might not be high art but it was good camp fun.
It begins with two men. Jake Hunter (Tom Wagner) has brought a man (Erich Lange) home but rather than be intimate with him – despite his companion wearing naught but a towel – he wants to tell the man all about vampires. Jake has a range of movie posters in his room, though the only vampire one is for Once Bitten.
