A cut above the run-of-the-mill horror film
26 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Vlad doesn't turn out to be the film you'd expect when you see that name, and it's much better and much more interesting than its cable/TiVo synopsis might lead one to believe. Because it's not just another vampire movie, or even a restless, tragic spirit movie. Vlad is an intriguing blend of historical fact and supernatural fiction. It's a movie with both a brain and a heart; the script believes its audience is at least IQ 80 and it doesn't treat the viewer as an imbecile, or an ADHD blood-and-guts freak who needs some lame-brained pseudo-action sequence every 7.5 seconds in order to stay interested in a film. Don't get me wrong; there's action, and there's plenty of supernatural trappings to Vlad. But there's also knowledge to be gained from the literate script, and heartstrings to be (rightfully) tugged by the backstory and plight of the tragic eponymous character. Good acting, superior writing and a marvelous grace note ending make Vlad a film that will stay with you long after you've first viewed it, and that only improves on repeat viewings. It's certainly not for everybody, but if you enjoy a film that doesn't insult your intelligence whilst telling you a fascinating story, then Vlad is the film for you. It could well become a classic if only more people were to take that chance and give it a try. It's really *that* good.
