For Joey Peacock (Jack Kilmer), life as a vampire in 1978 New York City isn’t half bad. He lives in the tunnels of the city with his unconventional family led by the fearsome Margaret McMannis (Minnie Driver) and spends his evenings reveling in the abundant pleasures the city has to offer. That is, until one night, when Joey witnesses something on a routine subway ride that turns his world upside-down.
