When she fancies a pint..., 4 April 2002
Author: Eric-1226 from Seattle, Washington

... she takes a liter (or two). Blood, that is. "Drink and heal" is vamp Lilith's code of survival. You can pump her full of lead till she's leaking like a sieve, but oh... just let her replenish her vital fluids through siphoning off some unlucky victim's fresh blood, and Bingo! The babe's back in business!

In spite of a few of its flaws, I couldn't help but like this movie. It is glaringly low-budget in places, and there are a few loose ends that are jarringly ineffective in the movie (example: the police detectives are questioning Lilith in New Scotland Yard (whatever happened to Old Scotland Yard, by the way?) and they have this tape recorder running, and the camera keeps doing close-ups of the tape... as if to imply, "Stay tuned! This little cassette tape somehow has real pending significance!" or something like that. Well, Lilith beats the rap so to speak, she walks out of questioning, and the one detective simply rips the tape out of the recorder and tears it up. So it is all just wasted suspense, leading you nowhere. I felt cheated.)

I also think there are a few areas of shameless padding (way too many shots of Lilith baring her pretty white fangs, for example). But all in all a very enjoyable flick. Thanks to the low budget, the production values actually lead to lots of groovy atmosphere of the "camp horror" variety, plus the movie boasts characters that are just compellingly 3-dimensional enough to latch on to and really get into. I also liked all the attempts at humor - the Chicken Vindaloo joke was cute!

Finally, I liked to read herein how other viewers from Britain could personally relate to those rocky outcroppings where the big gun battle takes place. As for me, it reminds me of the movie The Deer Hunter, with Robert Deniro. I have actually hiked in and around the very rocky outcroppings in the movie where they show Deniro hunting (it's supposed to be in Pennsylvania, but was actually filmed around Mt. Baker, Washington State.) So, fellow rock-relaters, I salute you.
