After Hours

Directed by Martin Scorcese, After Hours creeps into that part of your mind that goes on full-alert when you meet a person even more weird than your youngest sibling. Griffin Dunne plays an ordinary Joe trying to score a little nookie from a literary type (Rosanna Arquette) he meets at a café. Just by virtue of being at the wrong place at the wrong time, he screws up their date beyond repair and is chased like a fox through Soho province by graveyard shifters hungry for bloody vengeance. Sopping with intense black humor and bitingly ironic scenes, After Hours holds a cracked mirror up to the faces of the people your mom always warned you about.
