The secret is, vampires are real and I am one.
The secret is, Iâ€™m stealing from you what is most truly
yours and Iâ€™m not sorry...
New York City in 1978 is a dirty, dangerous place to live.
And die. Joey Peacock knows this as well as anybodyâ€”he has
spent the last forty years as an adolescent vampire,
perfecting the routine he now enjoys: womanizing in punk
clubs and discotheques, feeding by night, and sleeping by
day with others of his kind in the macabre labyrinth under
the cityâ€™s sidewalks.
The subways are his playground and his highway, shuttling
him throughout Manhattan to bleed the unsuspecting in the
Sheep Meadow of Central Park or in the backseats of Checker
cabs, or even those in their own apartments who are too
hypnotized by sitcoms to notice him opening their windows.
Itâ€™s almost too easy.
Until one night he sees them hunting on his beloved subway.
The children with the merry eyes. Vampires, like himâ€¦or not
like him. Whatever they are, whatever their appearance
means, the undead in the tunnels of Manhattan are not as
safe as they once were.
And neither are the rest of us.
