Razor Blade Smile (1998)

Razor Blade Smile is a 1998 low budget British Horror/Action film about a female vampire assassin. It is the story of Lilith Silver, a 19th century English woman, who has become one of the undead, after she has tried to stop a duel between her then-lover and Sir Sethane Blake, a vampire. In 1990's London, she acts as a hired killer who has taken up an assignment to eliminate a group of elite businessmen, 'The Illuminati', who are conspiring to take control over business and government. During this assignment, her path again crosses that of Sir Sethane Blake, leading to a surprising climax.

A 16mm indie film in the tradition of El Mariachi and The Evil Dead, it was shot on a total budget of US$ 27,500 (!). For this reason, it is not surprising that most of the guns used in the movie are either blank firing guns or plastic dummies. Razor Blade Smile came out in 1998, the same year as Blade, but the similarities do not end here. Both movies tell the story of a lone, leather-clad hero who fights a shadow-war with a mighty opponent, using samurai swords and lots of guns.

The following guns were used in the film Razor Blade Smile:

Bruni 1911

A Bruni 1911 blankfire replica of the M1911 is the weapon of choice for both Lilith Silver (Eileen Daly) as well as Illuminati thugs. It's also briefly seen in the hands of Lilith's lover Platinum (Kevin Howarth).

Bruni 1911 - 8mm blank firing
In this shot, the Bruni 1911 can be easily identified by the characteristic grips and Bruni inscriptions on the slide.
Good shot of the crude plastic grips of this weapon.

These guns belong to the farmhouse-scene bodyguards who must be the worst bodyguards ever; during their assignment they become bored and decide to play tennis while leaving their guns and mobile phone outside the tennis court (!).

Mini Uzi

A Mini Uzi is seen in the coffin that Lilith Silver uses as her weapons chest. She never uses it in the movie though. It may be an old Daisy SoftAir model 13, an Uzi replica that ejected plastic shells. This replica can be identified by the extra long magazine, and the charging handle is a little bigger and higher than the real deal.

Bruni Olympic 6

The Bruni Olympic 6 blank-firing revolver, recognizable by the signature ribbed ejector rod, is seen in Lilith's weapons chest and in the hands of Detective Inspector Price (Jonathan Coote) and Illuminati bodyguard Silk (Louisa Moore).

Bruni 92

A Bruni 92 blank firing replica of a Beretta 92FS is seen in the hands of Lilith Silver, Sir Sethane Blake (Christopher Adamson) and most Illuminati thugs. It can be identified as such by the crude black grips plus the top firing muzzle flash.

This shot clearly identifies this gun as a Bruni 92 due to the crude finish and the simple grips.

Flintlock pistol

This flintlock pistol is seen at the beginning of the movie, during the duel between Sir Sethane Blake and his opponent Jack Ryder (Glenn Wrage), the then love interest of Lilith. Lilith Silver herself also uses it when she tries to shoot Sir Sethane Blake to avenge her loverĀ“s death. It would be expected that a percussion cap gun is used due to this scene taking place in 1850, but that's probably a historic err due to the tight budget of the movie.

Good shot of the flintlock mechanism of the dueling guns.
