There are vampires in this story, true or false? Version 1.04, 30 January 2011
Author: annevejb from UK

This appears to blatantly try to be a horror film that looks to the Transylvania genre, while not being about literal vampires.

I guess that from the location and the mood of the horror. The setting reminds me of descriptions of North East Romania, Moldavia. Really nice scenery, surprisingly nice buildings.

The soundtrack music is not listed in the end credits and it appears to have been added in England as post production. Mostly really nice and again echoing descriptions of Moldavia, for me, but I do not know how authentic that link is or even if it is intended.

I really prefer softer stories, but this still has a lot going for it.

The cast also includes some who are as cute as one might expect in a Transylvania genre feature. Boobs too. Predictably, much of the story involves tangling that cute, anything nice here is going to get messed up badly. This is much more scary than horror from the 1950's and 60's. This is not a feature that I will want to watch all that often, despite the cast including Yasmin Paige, who unfortunately is one of the cute and who is the only one who wears a low cut frock in true Transylvania horror tradition, whatever that means. I am reminded of Quicksand (2003), which is a very different story.


Further than that, the horror is multiplied, for me, by it having some personal relevance.

The hospital is the Poe Institute. PR for the mental health industry does point out that metal health professionals are considered as worthwhile by many. This feature is a neat illustration of an opposing view that 50% or more who receive treatment are likely to consider it to be retrograde. Example, compare the film and book versions of Girl Interrupted. That film is not so much an example of 'Mental Health Is Nice', rather of 'Loonies Are Dangerous'? An inversion of the book.

I am one who can really accept the view in True True Lie. It also echoes the book version of Girl Interrupted. Someone who has been in the bin just might be able to relate to this picture of institutionalisation as a scary sort of deskilling. They should avoid the feature of Girl Interrupted unless they have grown the ability to switch off critical faculties. The feature of Girl Interrupted can be interpreted as a deskilling and inversion of the book, gargoyle creation.


For me this is a rather English sort of story, acceptable for Transylvania genre. It is an English production, filmed in Romania and tailored to the USA market. As a male to female I do not relate to many of the characters, mostly to the one with an eye problem, but that one is a male.

So this also makes me remember Dana International, but that is not the same thing.
