I saw this movie at the Göteborg film festival. I'm a bit of a vampire nut, and already knew I'd enjoy the movie if only for the fun of vampires speaking Swedish. However, it went far beyond my expectations. They actually put quite a lot of money into the special effects, not quite up to Hollywood levels, but definitely better than a b-level horror flick. The script was absolutely fantastic. It had all the right elements to make you laugh and really enjoy the movie, with the same not-entirely serious horror genre theme found in The Lost Boys. The audience was warm and receptive, and it was definitely worth every öre to see it.
I also dragged a friend to see it, who is not at all a fan of the genre, and he hasn't yet murdered me in my sleep, so I assume he wasn't lying when he said he enjoyed it.
There were a few things to complain about, but really, in this kind of movie you NEED some cheesy elements to throw your popcorn at. It just makes the movie more enjoyable.
I'm going to give it a 9, just because I know this movie won't appeal to everyone - but for god's sake, if you don't LIKE funny horror movies
don't watch them, instead of wasting your time going to see it (or
rent it) and then bad mouthing a movie you knew would never have enjoyed anyhow. :Þ
And really, c'mon.. vampires.. speaking Swedish! Someone finally making use of the fact that half of Sweden lives in permanent darkness half the year. If I was a vampire, I'd be spending my winter vacations there.
"hey, stop throwing garden gnomes at me!"
