Excellent film
10 June 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I agree with all the positive comments. I saw this movie mid-1990s and was blown away by it. I've since seen it about six times. Yes, it's slow, and if by 'horror' you mean fast-paced, aggressive, obvious, then this film isn't for you. But if the word horror means an emotion to you and you enjoy seeing that emotion woven into a mosaic of other emotions that will end up creating a rich and complex tapestry on film, one that can move you in a lot of different ways which includes horrifying you, and if you enjoy stylish movies, then you definitely should see this one. Julian Sands is excellent in the vampire role, very quirkily British, and it works wonderfully. I can't say enough good things about this movie. I only came to this site today because I remembered the movie, was telling a friend about it, and wanted to check the release date. From the comments, it's either a love it or hate it movie, it seems. Put me on the love it side.
