A MUST-SEE FOR FANS OF ROMANTIC VAMPIRE THRILLERS
9 August 2001 | by (Virginia) – See all my reviews

To Die For has it all.This film has a great cast. Lots and lots of romance and terror. Not too gory but still enough to appeal to horror fans. There are a lot more vampire love stories. If you are a fan of vampire love stories I strongly recommend this film-10/10.
