I was surprised at how much I really liked this movie. The story has a very original twist on the typical vampire script idea. It has a truly dark and brooding atmosphere about it throughout the film. The cinematography was amazingly professional and has a shocking style all it's own. The use of blue-tinted lighting throughout the movie helped the atmosphere greatly. The special effects make-up and prosthetics were better than most "A" Hollywood films...they didn't look so cheesy like in so many vampire films. Quirky characters make many of the scenes quite memorable.
Maybe it had to do with the fact that this film was shot in Chile, and I usually enjoy foreign films. I'm not really sure if I've ever seen a film from Chile before this. I would indeed like to see more if they are generally of this high quality.
Compared to the last few vampire direct-to-video films I've seen...this is far superior in many aspects. I feel the urge to view it again in the near future......
