Saw this cool Low budget (£20,000) Movie at the Iris Festival in Cardiff Wales UK and was thoroughly entertained!! Yeah its low budget but it just goes to show how with great acting, a cool storyline and some not too bad SFX and the drive of a hard working team what can be achieved!! If you like Vampires that look sexy, have some brains and are more believable than anything in the Twilight series this is a must see! And Yeah the two main Vamps are Gay but Jeez! its 2012!!! Brokeback Mountain meets Twilight!!! Go see it and enjoy something original and British!! Vampires! Sexy Vampires! Demons! Gods! Witches! This is gonna be a CULT Movie! Loved every second! I laughed! Jumped! and Felt for every second! LOVE IT!
After watching many of last year's gay vampire themed movies, I found this to be the best of the lot. Not that it's very good, or even good, but incomparable better than flops like 'The Vampire Boys' (1&2) or 'Kissing Darkness'. However poor the special effects, they could be find in modest sitcoms, and are ages afar the cited rival films. The main problem I found is the acting. Apart from Lucas (Rhys Howells) the main vampire, the cast can hardly deliver their lines, what is made more difficult because of the exaggerate fangs they wear. At least, most of the main cast of vampires is very cute, what may make you dismiss how bad they act. In a general evaluation, I find the movie passable for fans of the genre, that will have two hours of entertainment in a flick that had a necessary continuation in Vampires: Lucas Rising.
I hope there will be a continuation of this movie/season, "Vampires:
Brighter in Darkness". It is a vampire/horror in the classical sense in
that the terror is not like that of a Halloween/Friday the 13th type.
Being a gay man I of course enjoyed the intimate scenes that are
tastefully done. I like this film for these reasons, that and some of
the tender/tactile/romantic scenes,(all three qualities of which I am a
strong adherent of). The ending caught me completely off guard. I was
expecting a fairy tale ending..."and they all lived happily ever
after". In accordance with your guidelines re: "Spoiler", I will not
elaborate further on the ending.
But the ending is such that I would really hope there will be a continuation. I would like to see how this would develop into a really good series for those of us that enjoy this type of entertainment genre.
I loved this movie. Yea the special effects aren't Star wars but the acting is great the story line is very original and the guys are gay, vampires and hot. Where have you ever seen that before? I only saw the movie version of course but would love to see the original series as a lot of footage was cut from the series to make the movie a reasonable length. More than two hours was cut according to the director. There probably isn't much chance for another sequel but would love to see Dan Briggs and Rhys Howells work together again. The chemistry between these two was amazing. And very believable. If you like vampires, do yourself a favor and watch this and the sequel Vampires Lucas Rising.
