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.
