a fine vampire flick
28 April 2000 | by (slc, utah) – See all my reviews

this is one of the best vampire movies around (which isn't saying too much as most of them suck.) the characters draw you in and the style of storytelling, although a little difficult to follow at first, really works with the plot-lines to allow you to think about and experience what happens. the only real drawback is that the animation was a little too static. all in all, this goes in my top 5 vampire movies (position 2 or 3.)
