A story of a detective who finds out what living as Vampire is like
26 October 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is written by Shigenoro Takechi who also wrote IZO, and directed by Ten Shimoyama who directed Shinobi - Heart Under Blade. Aya Sugimoto used to be photographic idol in the '80s. She shows that she still has what it takes in this 21st century movie.

A detective who's been demoted to cold case files decides to investigate the homicide of a maid that statute of limitation is about to run out. He goes to see the ex-employer of the maid Miyako Rosenberg (Aya Sugimoto), but find out that she's a vampire.

There's no campiness in this movie like they have with vampire movies from Hong Kong. It's rather serious and gruesome. The movie basically boils down to two things. One is view of detective Hoshino as he discovers what it is like to live as a vampire, and the other is the erotic exploits between Hoshino, and Miyako. If these are not interesting topic for you, then this movie is not for you.

In Japan, I believe the attraction of this movie was Aya Sugimoto's beauty. Sugimoto has equally large women fan base as do men, so the movie might have been written to satisfy both male, and female audiences.

If there's one complaint about this movie, it's that the sound effects are not well controlled. Voices are too low or difficult to hear if the sound level is adjusted to the sound effects.
