Storyline

The sound of flapping bat wings, an empty coffin, glistening fangs, tiny punctures on the neck, the sensual taste of blood, a blank reflection, fear of the cross, and death from daylight. These are the creatures of the night, and as legendary (but fictional) vampire hunter Abraham Van Helsing exclaimed: "Gentlemen, we are dealing with the undead!" Perhaps the most enduring film genre of all time, vampire films continue to haunt us on the big screen. Why are we fascinated with the myth of these immortal souls? Could it be the living forever part, or perhaps the fact that they have an unearthly sexual attraction to both males and females? Whatever it is, audiences around the world can't seem to get enough of them. Written by Steve Belgard

Ah, bloody heck!
15 April 2009 | by (Chicago, Illinois) – See all my reviews

I was going through Netflix to find a good movie and was going through the horror genre section, I needed a good scare and saw Bloodsucking Cinema which is a documentary about vampire movies, which I thought were mainly going to be the classics. Now I was definitely excited to see that they were going to mention: Nosferatu, Dracula, the Hammer films, The Lost Boys, Bram Stroker's Dracula. I always was a very big fan of vampire films, ever since I was a little girl, my mom and I would watch one every weekend, I always thought that they were cool. Vampires are a great monster to adore because they represent eternal youth, beauty, and life. Mainly because of film the vampire has been more romantic then what stories had told us before. But still it's a fun little fairy tale to think about: a dashing man in a cap comes into a girl's bedroom to make her his or a beautiful woman who seems so in love with you making you her little love toy. It's very erotic and exciting to us since it's so "forbidden" in our world. So I do love to see documentaries on vampires and since this was a documentary more so on vampire films, I didn't even hesitate.

So as a documentary about vampire films, this goes into the famous movies about vampires, slayers, the victims, and the survivors. They talk to the most famous directors, actors, writers, and critics about what it was like to make the famous films such as: The Lost Boys, Dracula, Innocent Blood, Nosferatu, Underworld, and Van Helsing. They even for some odd reason throw in Bloodrayne which was a pretty lousy movie so I'm not so sure why they would put that in there. But if you were curious on how the stories came to be, this is the documentary for vampire fans.

My main problem with the film is that they spend a little bit too much time with Uwe Boll's movie Bloodrayne which is just a bad movie and I was questioning why they even bothered. They also still missed on a few films that I felt needed mentioning: Dracula(with Frank Langella), Fright Night, Count Yorga, and even 30 Days of Night(even if I didn't really like that movie). They also talked about both Queen of the Damned and Interview with the Vampire at the same time which I felt like it was a cheat considering they were both very different from each other. Now I'm not completely complaining, I did enjoy the documentary on vampire films, I loved to get the idea of what the directors thought of vampire stories and such. It was cool also to learn about how some of the effects or how the story came to be. I was just bummed that it was pretty short and they didn't really go into much detail on certain films. But this is worth the look for any vampire fan.

6/10
