Human drama in vampire movie form
10 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have to admit that I was intrigued by the premise of this movie. Instead of having unrealistic characters, there is a random and quirky mix, and people don't become overnight heroes. The acting quality was decent without having anyone being a caricature. It moves a bit slower than the average vampire flick, because it's not an average vampire flick. So, for those expecting action-packed gore and lots of cool special effects, you may be disappointed. This movie visually catches the general feeling of forlorn hope; what would you do to survive, and when does it become too much to live with? it is beautiful yet desolate. It's not a perfect movie, but much better than I expected.

The piano soundtrack at certain points in the movie was absolutely haunting. I'm obsessed with figuring out how to play it now.
