Young Indiana Jones star Sean Patrick Flanery is Harry Balbo, a lonely and defeated office worker whose life takes a spiral even further downward when he witnesses a man being attacked by a beautiful female vampire(Charlotte Ayanna) on a city street. He eventually attempts to hunt the vampire but is too softhearted to kill her, leading him down the dangerous path of caging the creature and keeping it alive in his basement. Harry doesn't know what to do now that he has the lovely beast at his mercy. He can't free her, he can't kill her, and her hunger for blood is insatiable.
If you're a fan of vampire movies, you probably understand the frustration of trying to find a good one amongst all the many films out there today. In the direct-to-video market, it seems particularly unlikely, but "Insatiable" is a wonderful surprise. It's an original and engaging story that keeps you entertained and curious about what will happen next. Not that it's entirely unpredictable, but it still manages to surprise you at times. Decent writing and great acting add up to a very entertaining evening with this one. Quite simply, it's a surprisingly good movie, one that I've enjoyed watching more than once. I first caught it on television a couple of times, and when I saw it for sale at a nice price, I had to pick it up. You'll particularly enjoy this one if you are a Flanery fan or can just relate to being the lonely guy who can't catch a break. The DVD holds the film's trailer and others from the same company, but that's the extent of the bonus features. The presentation is widescreen, as it should be, and if you like vampire films, I highly recommend adding this one to your collection.
