Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Nightlife was produced for the USA Cable Network, which might give you a general idea of its artistic merit. On its own junk-food-for-the-eyes terms, however, this vampire comedy is a stitch. Ben Cross and Maryam D'Abo star as a loving vampire couple who go out on a night on the town (they certainly can't go out in the daytime). "Normal" human being Keith Szarabaijka spots Maryam, and it's love at first...sight. The script, by director Daniel Taplitz and former Saturday Night Live staffer Anne Beatts, works well on a comedy-sketch level, though the 90-minute length tends to suck the premise dry. Nightlife was first telecast on August 23, 1989.
