"The Girl With the Hungry Eyes is based upon a short story by Frietz (sp?) Leiber and it's about a woman in the 1930s (owner of the fashionable South Beach hotel, The Tides) who kills herself because the man she wanted was cheating on her. Flash foward 60 years and the hotel is about to be demolished. The evil place brings Louise (Jon Jacobs' alum Christina Fulton) back to life as a vampire. With every person she kills, the hotel restores itself. Will Louise save her soul? I came to see this movie after viewing director Jon Jacobs' newer film "Lucinda's Spell". Jacobs must have a love affair with Ms. Fulton because he uses her alot, but the combination works. Also try to spot the director in a small but memorable role of Henry! He's not that bad an actor."

"Kristina Fulton (sometimes billed as Christina Fulton) is one sexy vampire.The plot's a bit strange; an old hotel resurects Kristina as a vampire after she committed suicide, then asks her to go & kill the person holding the deeds to the hotel (does the hotel want the deed so it own's itself? Hotel Liberation! Free the Hotels!)But, visually, it's very interesting. And, did I say, Kristina's a sex godess? I've been waiting for this to come onto DVD for ages."
Good adaptation of a Fritz Lieber short story...

""The Girl with the Hungry Eyes" is a short vampire story by Fritz Lieber. This movie takes the basic premise of the book- about a vampire who's a model and expounds on it. And it works. Christina Fulton makes a good vampire, by the way."
Very good, but they should really have kept the longer versi

"There is the 'official' release of this on the dvd, which is the shorter edited version, which has far superior picture quality in that the colours are bright, whereas the longer, unedited version, also on the disc, has dull colours, but the shorter, official, release is spoilt by an annoying voice over, which really wasn't necessary, and seems only to be there to 'explain' more fully the story to what seems to be felt of as a dim American audience on the part of the makers. The longer version, which I saw first, is far, far superior in every way, apart from the dull colours, to the shortened version, so anyone seeing this should make sure to see the longer version first and see it how the director intended. It is based on the short story of the same name by Fritz Lieber, but in that 'the girl' remains nameless and an enigma, whereas in the movie, she is given a background supposedly explaining why she is the way she is, when the story works better without this, as she doesn't need an explanation, quite simply, she just - 'is'. And the written story conveys this very well. Never forget the last paragraph of the story where The Girl reveals her full intent, "I want that broken bike, I want your blood on the cobblestones, baby!" or whatever it was, she said. It said it all in that final paragraph. A brilliant story and one of the best I ever read when very very young indeed. ;-)"
