Compared are the Theatrical Version (German FSK 16 VHS by Columbia Pictures) and the Uncut Version (BBFC 18 DVD by MGM.

There are 19 additional scenes with a total length of 8 minutes and 1.5 seconds.

Vampire's Kiss is a funny vampire comedy which is not about vampires per se. At least not about real ones. Because after Peter (Nicolas Cage) got bitten by his mistress, he now believes he is a vampire and keeps acting like one. What he doesn't know is that he is only imagining it and that his insanity is taking control of him.

The Theatrical Version lacks approximately 8 minutes of plot. In most cases, the missing footage is insignificant but longer dialogs with a length of one minute or one minute and a half are also missing. The UK DVD by contains the Uncut Version.

Peter: I don't really know what you're talking about! I don't remember!
Dr. Glaser: You were sure about it last weekend! It made a strong impression!
