A Vampire Legend is Born
29 June 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Steve Hudgins has re-imagined the Classic Vampire movie genre in his groundbreaking tale "The Caretakers." This movie takes you into the world of those who know Vampires best: the people whose job it is to care for them. This is a beautifully engineered story of Vampire culture far removed from the usual "The Young and the Restless (with fangs.)" The Caretakers shatters many myths and commonly held beliefs about Vampires and how they operate with such authority that it will have you questioning the validity of every Vampire story to which you have ever been subjected.

Bill Johnson and Joe Estevez certainly lend an air of gravitas to this picture but Nick Faust and Michael Coon deliver world class performances each in their own right. Brittney Saylor brings the horror as the likable monster. April LaRae is compelling as the original-line Vampire. Jessica Dockery, Lucy Turner, PJ Woodside, Steve Hudgins and all the rest of the cast deliver their believable characters with flawless portrayals; which is fast becoming a hallmark of Big Biting Pig Productions fare.

As fans of this companies movies might expect, this one offers plot twists and turns and has no trouble holding your attention to the bitter end. If Big Biting Pig Productions movies keep getting better with each release then you have to say that this is their best yet.
