very different take on obsession
24 November 2009 | by (Greenwich - London) – See all my reviews

As others have mentioned this at once, obscure, perverse and rather slow. I'm not sure I'd go along with 'silly', but there are some moments more inept than others which, possibly just as well, help one treat this less than wholeheartedly seriously. On the other hand, such is the lead's obsession, to the extent that we cannot see why he even foes these things or what he gets out of them, we are drawn onto his side. There are no repercussions after his forays into graveyards and mortuaries, no evident police investigations and left with the awful night activities and the merciless teasing he gets in the office, we tend to see things from his point of view. The very 'nonsense' element regarding the bloodlust means that we are unable to detach ourselves as easily from the protagonist and his activities. Interesting and gory and certainly a very different take on obsession.
