If you like B movies at all, you'll fall in LOVE with this movie!
26 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I had low expectations of this movie. I knew it'd be a B movie. I thought it would be cheesy and fun to watch, yet still make me cringe at times. There are no cringing moments; this is spectacular cinema! As mentioned in the movie's description, this is done with all sign language. There are no speaking actors, yet the hearing viewer isn't lost because there are voice overs. I was shocked at the attention to detail. There are great camera angles, a good plot, interesting characters, and just a lot of plain old good times! This is a twist on the classic Dracula films that works so well. It has all the shock value and drama needed to make it the classic B, as well as the cheese factor that makes you fall in love with it. I adore this movie, and am so grateful to a friend for giving it me. I've never seen anything like it, and apparently never will again, being as it currently is the first and only deaf based movie. The whole movie is an experience that defies description; it's a must see on anyone B movie lovers list!
