... demons, vampires, ghosts, werewolves, black magicians and every other kind of supernatural nasty you can think of exist, and someone (ie, the PCs) need to stop them from realizing their diabolical schemes, usually in ways that require car chases, gunfights, kung fu and special-effects-laden magic.It's good to be able to laugh at yourself.
Like those movies, the game takes place in a stylized, art-deco/gothic version of the modern day --- it's like New York, only it's always 2 o'clock in the morning and raining, and every building in the city is taller and looms more, and has gargoyles pasted to it.
Furthermore, all of the PCs are incredibly cool. They could wander onto the set of a Matrix movie without changing clothes, are all incredibly beautiful, and have soap-opera-complex love lives (which also produce excuses for high-octane action sequences).
