Wonderful
27 February 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is by far the best Vampire film I have ever seen. Finally a film which is based on character rather than driven by plot and endless gore. Wonderfully shot and with great performances from all involved. Highly recommended! So often films are influenced by the likes of Interview with the Vampire and other post-Rice trash, which contain a romanticised view of the Vampire's nature and life, but this film takes us back to the original meaning of Vampires: anguish and death, but without letting the gore take over.
