Meaningless Streets
25 October 2007 | by lastliberalSee all my reviews

So what if your life is meaningless and crappy. You live in a crappy abandoned building, and you go to crappy clubs that feature someone like "Screaming' Rachel, and you have a meaningless job in a pizza parlor (although we never see you working). Life sucks, especially your, and especially because you suck - blood that is.

Yeah, you do have that extra problem of picking up girls to quench that thirst for blood. I do say this for you, though, you do manage to have sex before you kill them. Your life isn't a total waste.

Jeffrey Arsenault didn't do anything in his first film to make me want to see his later ones and, judging by the response on IMDb, no one else has seen them either. There just didn't seem to be much of a plot. Sullen guy picks up girls, picks up Angel's (John Leguizamo) sister, gets in a fight with Angel, falls in love, throws up a lot after eating meat and drinking his own blood, finally can't take it anymore and rapes his love and chops her up after drinking her blood, gets in another fight with Angel. God, this man's life is miserable!

It just sorta ends.

It is cool seeing Michael Musto, writer for the Village Voice and frequent guest on "Countdown w/ Keith Olbermann"
