One of the most interesting low budget vampire stories of the 90's
18 February 1999 | by Arska-2See all my reviews

The rough-edged New York City atmosphere in Night Owl makes you associate the film with the works of Nick Zedd and Richard Kern. Night Owl is, however, more sophisticated than the works of the transgression guys, and Jeffrey Arsenault seems to be a master of visuals whose skills are still somewhat in a certain stage of development. Anyway, Night Owl makes a nice surprise in an age when most of the contemporary vampire films coming out of the US are made by straight-to-video crapmakers who should never have been offered a camera with a videotape.
