Title character in Martin is a supposed 84-year-old vampire whose youthful visage has survived his escape from Rumania through his contemporary journey to Braddock, Pa, where grandfather Lincoln Maazel is determined to drive out ‘Nosferatu’, with Martin as the last remaining relative afflicted with the family curse.

This urban vampire kills not with his teeth, but with prepackaged razor blades, neatly slicing veins and arteries for his mealtime pleasure.

Pittsburgh-based auteur George A. Romero is still limited by apparently low budgets. But he has inserted some sepia-toned flashback scenes of Martin in Rumania that are extraordinarily evocative, and his direction of the victimization scenes shows a definite flair for suspense.
