Release date: 1995
DeGenerazione is an Italian anthology film that utterly shuns a portmanteau wrap-around and fires short after short that are only connected by the surreality. The films vary in subject matter from horror, to social satire, the battle of the sexes and science fiction.
The vampire segment is called “Just another Vampire Story”, which was directed by Andrea Maula. This is the only vampire segment – though the bizarre pre-credit sequence, Our Guys Are Coming, does feature a poster of “Dracula Vampiro”.

This was a fun little section, but it was little. The film is rare (though the fact that Asia Argento was involved, writing, acting and directing, makes me surprised that it is not more widely available). The entire film is worth seeing, but I only score the vampire segment and I liked it, despite its brevity but because of its nice little twist, playing with expectation by having the anachronistic (almost Barnabas Collins looking) man not being the vampire and the audacity of the ET source that was, of course, false. 6 out of 10.
