A Thoroughly Enjoyable Low-Budget Take on Vampires, 20 September 2009
Author: gavin6942 from United States

A young man (Tommy Sweeney) tries and fails to kill himself. Feeling alienated from his friends, he falls for a seductive model, who welcomes him into her fold. But for better or worse, that fold happens to be an underground lair of vampires. Now, the prospect of death is slim and eternal life is available at his fingertips... or teeth!

Of Greg Lamberson's three low-budget films (with "Slime City" and "Naked Fear"), I find "Undying Love" to be his strongest piece. Sweeney is a solid actor, and the directing is tight... along with a real development of characters we don't often see in no-frills cinema. The film is gritty, dark, and the grainy picture adds rather than takes away from the mood. There is a definite influence from George A. Romero's "Martin", and from the opening scene -- a razor blade suicide -- you'll be left uneasy.

Some vampire films are able to pull off the non-traditional approach and others aren't. This one, luckily, can and does. Despite the vampires facing sunlight, other classic obstacles and having no distinct fangs, this movie works. In some ways, it works better, because it seems almost plausible.

I really enjoyed this film, and would recommend it to anyone who is a fan of vampire films or low-budget cinema (especially if you like seeing the same apartment reused for different scenes). Thanks to Alternative Cinema, you can now get this film on DVD with audio commentary, other features and Lamberson's other projects in one collection.
