Blade (1998)
Synopsis: A half-mortal, half-immortal is out to avenge his mother's death and rid the world of vampires. The modern-day technologically advanced vampires he is going after are in search of his special blood type needed to summon an evil god who plays a key role in their plan to execute the human race.


We are in the basement now. At the end of the hall is a steel door,

with perhaps, just the faintest HINT OF MUSIC heard coming from

beyond. Raquel knocks.

A "peep-hole" slat opens and a BLACK LIGHT shines into Raquel's eyes.

A VOICE behind the door offers a verbal challenge, speaking a

language we've never heard, laced with a devilish cadence.

Raquel responds in kind. The door opens. Raquel gives Dennis a

knowing wink, enters. Dennis follows.


Raquel and Dennis move past a hulking DOORMAN, making their way down

a narrow stairway. Dennis is suitably impressed.


is elite, underground -- an "abattoir-chic" version of an old-time

juke joint with a greasy, dangerous vibe. White-tiled walls and

floors for easy hosing, chromed fittings, run-off gutters, drains. No



writhe on the strobe-lit dance floor. A heavy S&M scene. Leather.

Latex. Tattoos. Body-piercings.

A D.J. wearing head-mounted spotlights orchestrates the tunes on

twin- decks. MUSIC assaults us -- a beat so heavy it could jar the

fillings from your teeth. Brutal "DARKCORE" along the lines of

Prodigy or Underground.

Raquel pulls Dennis out onto the dance floor. They sway.

A lupine-featured GAULTIER GIRL with a streak of white running

through her raven hair moves in behind Dennis, pressing up against

him. Rachel Williams as the Angel of Death -- we'll call her MERCURY.

Mercury flicks her tongue against Dennis' ear -- it's been pierced

with a silver post which clicks against her teeth. Tattooed across

her back in black is a swirling, tribal vortex.
