We Are The Night Movie Review

Is it possible for a vampire film to feel really fresh anymore? I can happily report that yes, yes it can! We Are The Night (Wir sind die Nacht) is a recent vampire genre film out of Germany and despite the familiarity it felt very fresh and it was extremely entertaining.

The film felt like a mixture of The Lost Boys, Near Dark, and American late 90’s vampire films with that distinct European flavour. It ranges in classic genres too; it is part horror, part romance, part drama and part action. Director and co-writer Dennis Gansel successfully blended all these elements, and it was obvious while watching the film that this was a passion project. The film is Gansel’s own take on Camilla the gothic novella that pre-dates Dracula, a subject seen before on film but not quite in this way.

Female vampires just want to have fun in We Are the Night.

A stylized vampire horror movie by German director Dennis Gansel (The Wave), 2010’s We Are the Night (or Wir sind die Nacht in its native German) follows a sect of seductive female vampires that hide out in Berlin’s alternative nightclubs, enjoying the luxuries and pleasures their attained immortality provides them. Oh, and when they’re not partying, the vamps are wreaking horror and havoc on a string of unsuspecting victims.

Starring striking German actresses Karoline Herfurth, Nina Hoss, Jennifer Ulrich and Anna Fischer as a quartet of blood-sucking babes who make the Sex and the City gals look like fruit bats, We Are the Night played in theaters in Europe last year and then popped up on a couple of screens in the U.S. in May to little fanfare.

We Are The Night (Wir Sind Die Nacht) is pretty but shallow

Year: 2010

Director: Dennis Gansel

Writers: Dennis Gansel, Jan Berger

IMDb: link

Trailer: link

Review by: Marina Antunes

Rating: 6.5 out of 10

The concept for We are the Night (Wir sind die Nacht), a film we've been referring to since the first teaser as a "vampire vixen drama," is pretty great: a group of female vampires wreaking havoc through a metropolis, in this case Berlin. Throw in the fact that the film is directed and co-written by Dennis Gansel, a director who impressed me with his ability to freshen up and make interesting a tired trope with The Wave, and it looked like he was onto something great with We are the Night.

Gansel builds an interesting world where vampire women have taken it upon themselves to eradicate the males of the species for being too loud and uncontrollable and vowing never to create another. "No boyfriends, no husbands." That seems to

Second, better trailer for vixen vampire drama We Are The Night (Wir Sind Die Nacht)

A few months ago we posted the first full length trailer for Dennis Gansel’s We Are the Night (Wir Sind Die Nacht), a vampire film starring Karoline Herfurth as Lena, a young woman bitten by the leader of a vampire trio.

I liked but wasn’t particularly impressed by the first trailer which was just a little too glossy and clean for my liking, more like a music video than a film but the new trailer, which features a few cuts from the first mixed with some actual plot, is doing a whole lot more for me. It’s not quite as appealing to the club generation as the first trailer was but it features Lena pre-turning, a glimpse at the undercover police officer and one of the most interesting ways I’ve ever seen of putting out a cigarette.

They’ve got my full attention.

New trailer after the break.

Vampire Film We Are the Night Has a Sexy New Poster

We Are The Night ArtThe German language film Wir sind die Nacht aka We Are the Night has a new graphic, which shows off the sexy vampires from the film. The tagline for the flick is "Immortal, Insatiable," and this short line is an obvious double entendre. In case the message is not clear in the tagline, the sparse clothing and longing looks seem to state that this will be more than your average vampire film. If you are unfamiliar with the film, a trailer is provided below, which shows a vampire trio on the movie in the dark nightlife of Berlin.

The synopsis for We Are the Night:

"One night 18-year-old Lena is bitten by Louise, leader of a female vampire trio that are as deadly as they are beautiful. Her newfound vampiric lifestyle is a blessing and a curse at the same time. At first she enjoys the limitless freedom,
