'Def by Temptation' (749 words)
A few years ago, Kathryn Bigelow brought new blood to the vampire thriller with "Near Dark," and James Bond III has done the same with "Def by Temptation," a contemporary fl horror film that's light-years ahead of "Blacula" and "Scream, Blacula, Scream!," which established this genre offshoot in the very early '70s.
It's in his handling of actors (including himself) that James Bond III shows great promise: He pulls unexpected things out of them in such an undemanding context, though it helps that they are all good actors to begin with and that he has given them credible dialogue with which to work.
"Def" is hardly the first film to promote itself through pop cameos and songs that are not essential to the plot, but in most cases, such films lack the substance "Def" consciously aims for.
