Some moments are truly inspiring, 2 September 2003
Author: FINSLAW from United States

It helps to watch Track of the Vampire after seeing Hill's cult film Spider Baby. Not that it helps it make more sense, it just warms you up to weirdness that doesn't always make sense or flow too well. I feel that much of the film could be jumbled around in a different order and possibly feel less like the patchwork it is, and making the main character into a vampire sure shows signs of forcing it all to fit. Many images in the film do command respect, the cut to the dry lake bed, the carousel, the endearingly overlong beach dance, and the comical Bucket of Blood-like scenes. I personally thrive on surreal imagery from the early 60's (Carnival of Souls, I Bury the Living, Night Tide) and this film contains some of my favorites. Still, a definate example of parts being more than the whole.
