A science fiction vampire movie. The Vampire is an emissary from an embattled world near destruction who teleports to Earth to see if they can live here. He finds that our blood is nourishing and that at least one source of it is a steady stream of transfusions. He hypnotizes a Dr. to provide them and has his blond nurse move in to administer them.
This Roger Corman produced sci-fi/horror B-film by director Jim Wynorski, a remake of Corman’s earlier 1957 film of the same name (with Beverly Garland), starred ex-porn star queen Traci Lords in her first legal and legitimate (non-X-rated) role, often nude. It would be her last bare appearance in a feature film.
The low-budget story was about an alien (“Not of This Earth”) – an extra-terrestrial space vampire alien scientist with sunglasses named Mr. Johnson (Arthur Roberts), who came from the dying planet of Davanna. In the opening prologue, he approached a car at night where a couple (Belinda Grant and Robby Bointen) were making out in the back seat. He grabbed the male by the throat, then removed his sunglasses to project a deadly bluish eye beam at the topless female before preparing to siphon her blood. From his metal briefcase, he removed a blood-sucking device that he stuck into her neck to drain her blood.
He was on earth, portraying an eccentric millionaire, to get blood transfusions. Actually, his evil plot was to drain blood from various specimens to send a new blood supply to Davanna. In a clinic, he hired Dr. Rochelle’s (Ace Mask) nurse, Nadine Story (Traci Lords), to be his sexy, private-care clinic nurse, assisting him in his transfusions for his strange blood condition. During the main plot of the film, Nadine appeared in various outfits: a nurse costume, a shiny blue bikini, a black strapless evening gown, lacy lingerie, and was briefly topless in one apres-shower scene to show off her large breasts (while drying off) – when she flirted with handsome pool-man and ex-con Jeremy (Lenny Juliano), who was hired to be Johnson’s butler.
Jeremy proposed catching her (she compared herself to a “mermaid”) in the pool with his prodigiously-sized “fishing pole,” although she cautioned: “You’d better be careful, you just might land a barracuda.” Nadine and her cop boyfriend Harry (Roger Lodge) became suspicious of Johnson and were alarmed that three busty prostitutes (Roxane Kernohan, Ava Cadell and Cynthia Thompson) entered the residence but never reappeared.
One of the live specimens for blood was a near-sighted Happy Birthday Girl (Becky LeBeau) who came to the wrong address to deliver a strip-o-gram – she was snatched, led to a blue beam, and transmitted back to his alien planet home.
