RapidReview~2, 12 December 2011
Author: ashhub from United Kingdom

Well that was a surprise what a great film~

If you are looking for a moody atmospheric vampire flick you can't get much better than this~

Good mix between action suspense and thrills~

I liked the style of the film reminded me a little of silence of the lambs for some reason~

Slightly dodgy acting in places but this doesn't spoil a fan~g~tastic plot~ oops i've said it twice now

I thought some of the camera work was superb and there are a few funny moments and jumpy moments that are exactly that~

Was the above review useful to you?
