Quotes

Lemora: Tomorrow, after the ceremony, you and I will become blood sisters... and all my power... all my beauty... all my life will be yours to share.
Lila Lee: What kind of ceremony? In the church?
Lemora: Yes.
Lila Lee: Baptist?
Lemora: Oh, no. Much more ancient than that. A church that all the others came from. A ceremony that goes so far back no-one knows when it began.

Dreamlike, aesthetic, beautiful...
22 March 2003 | by (Northern Colorado) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie late one night; I must have been 10 or 11. What I remember most was the song of the nightbirds in the nocturnal outdoor scenes, and how I would hear the same song as I laid in my bed at night in East Texas. To my young and overly active imagination, this could only mean Lemora was in my neck of the woods, and because of this I knew for sure I was on her list of little girls to take away to experience the wonders of the night. A striking and strange movie, with one of the most captivating vampiresses on film. If you ever wanted a vampire for a mommy, this one's for you!
