An Interesting Cartoon About Vampires and Organized Crime
4 February 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A vampire family from Cuba is preparing for a showdown between the American vampires and the Eastern European vampires. But with the aid of a scientist, they need a type of vaccination where they can live in daylight.

I thought the only film about vampires and organized crime was "Innocent Blood" (1992). Turns out that the Spaniards beat the Americans to the punch by a few years. Of course, beyond that, the films have absolutely nothing in common.

Although my Spanish is very spotty, I still enjoyed this film. It was clever, a bit funny, and not at all as cheesy as I might have expected. The animation is not going to impress anyone, but sometimes that is not important. I am curious about the sequel...
