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

Bloodsucking Cinema (2007)

*** (out of 4)

Short, 55-minute documentary that takes a look at why vampire films are so popular in cinema. The film takes a look at where the true legend comes from and then goes into all the films starting with 1922's Nosferatu and leading up to current films like Underworld and Van Helsing. If you have the slightest knowledge of film history then you're not going to learn anything by this film because it's clearly being made for those who have never seen a vampire movie. John Carpenter, John Landis, Joel Schumaker and Uwe Boil are among the people interviewed as they talk about their own films as well as the ones they enjoyed while growing up. It was nice seeing Carpenter talk about enjoying various Hammer movies and even the 1931 Lugosi film gets a lot of talk. For some reason this film almost seems like a promotional piece for From Dusk Till Dawn, which gets a lot of the talk. Cheech Marin talks about his roles in that film but the most interesting thing is seeing him talk about all the Mexican vampire films made throughout the decades. While there wasn't anything new I learned here the film still kept me entertained enough to enjoy what I was watching.
