Very funny unique animated film
19 February 2002 | by (Chicago, USA) – See all my reviews

This film is a great deal of fun, especially for anyone interested in either vampires or Cuban music. Some of the sight gags involving the vampires still crack me up even though it's been years since I saw this, and the use of music and just plain latin exuberance are both excellent.

(Wracking my brains for flaws) The animation looks a little primative (although one might also consider it "stylized"), and the pacing isn't always as snappy as it might be.

But all in all, it's great and there's really nothing like it. And I believe US viewers will be amused rather than put off by the rather obvious "Capitalists = Vampires" symbolism.
