Innocent Blood (1992) – John Landis

Sooner or later a John Landis film had to pop up in DK Canada’s Monsters in the Movies book. Despite the fact that the famed director wrote it, he would be remiss if he didn’t include his own films in this highly enjoyable book. Consequently I happily sank my fangs into this vampire tale that…
