Daylight Fades
15 April 2014 | by See all my reviews

It might be accidental, but one of the vampires in Daylight Fades looks the spit of a young Bill from True Blood. He even talks the same way! Interesting...

The actual movie itself is less of a rip-your-throat spectacle, and more of a thoughtful what would happen if... drama. As in, if your boyfriend suffered fatal injuries in a car accident, would you be happy when your long-lost bloodsucker father reincarnated him as a member of the living dead? It's great having your beau back, but at the cost of him having to stay indoors all days, and uncontrollably feasting on passing humans when the mood takes him? A guy can't just survive on stray cats & dogs alone, ya know...

I found the characters here compelling in the way they interacted with each other, and the low-key undertakings a refreshing change from the usual blood eruptions associated with the genre. It provides direct contrasts between vampires trying to cling onto whatever traces of humanity they possess, to those who give into their base desires and see their former race as just cattle. It also raises an interesting quandary: I'm going to live for eternity. Should I contact my old flame, even though she's now YEARS older? All intriguing questions, and explored in good detail.

Sure, there's the odd dodgy acting moment and bad special effect, but so what? For the relative sum it must have cost to make, it's a bit of a hidden gem. And the final shot is quite beautiful. 6/10
