Excellent psychological thriller!!
3 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Unfortunately this is one of the flicks that popular critics might toss aside for the cast of unknowns but I have to say if you are into a deep psychological brain yank...this flick does it well.

It starts by making you think about who you might deem worthless to society and who the real monsters are...then at the end you get this twist that will leave you stunned.

You can't find it on Netflix or at any rental stores but it's actually worth buying and putting in your collection. It will be one of those movies that you will ask all of your friends if they've seen it or not then you'll proceed to throwing it in the player.

You'll want to share this with anyone who enjoys a tastefully done vampire flick with all of the literal horror and hokum taken out.

It hits on the emotional and gives one insight on themselves.

Watch it..you won't regret it and you'll be talking about it for a long time to come. I saw it for the first time over ten years ago and still refer to it as one of the best movies I've ever seen.
