Pretty decent vampire flick...
22 May 2000 | by (Poland) – See all my reviews

First of all,I haven't seen John A.Russo's "Midnight",so I won't compare this movie to that picture.However I must say that I found some similarities between "Heartstopper" and George A.Romero's "Martin":both movies deal with blood-thirsty vampire,who likes drinking a blood of his victims,in both movies we can also see the appearance of Tom Savini.The special effects wizard plays a policeman,who tries to stop the vampire(Kevin Kindlin).The acting ranks from acceptable to lame,the atmosphere is non-existent and the film is rather dull.Nice heavy metal music though.The last twenty minutes is surprisingly effective.The gore level is quite low,but you can find here some gory violence(for example wrist slashing,blood sucking etc.)In conclusion,"Heartstopper" is a simple movie,so you can try it at least once.
