weak action and slow, 10 October 2015
Author: SnoopyStyle

Detective Hoshino investigates a 14 year old case of a brutally murdered maid. His investigation leads him to the mysterious Ukyo. He witnesses him killing and then drinking another young woman's blood. Ukyo is a Samurai who has continued as a vampire. His men take Hoshino to be killed at the docks where he is rescued by vampire Miyako. She shares her blood with him to save him and thereby turning him.

This is trying to be a stylish Gothic vampire movie. The film moves way too slowly. The action style is lacking. It would have been cool back in the 80s or 90s. It doesn't look nearly as cool for action of today. The acting is mostly wooden. It's a low budget action wannabe but it fails to live up to its ambitions. The film is generous with its blood flow. However, it is so slow that the tension never gets that high.
