:George Romero does for vampires what he has already done to zombies - an intense and realistic treatment that follows the exploits of Martin, who claims to be 84 years old, and who certainly drinks human blood. The boy arrives in Pittsburg to stay with his uncle, who promises to save Martin's soul and destroy him once he is finished, but Martin's loneliness finds other means of release. Martin is 17 years old, and thinks he is a vampire. OK, he doesn't have fangs, but razor blades work just as well. He becomes well known after calling in to a late night radio show, but is he really a vampire ?
