Storyline

Unusual twist on vampire mythology supposes one important difference from most movies: daylight does not harm vampires. With this weakness removed, by the 16th or 17th century vampires have become the aristocracy, controlling government and exploiting the few remaining, destitute humans as food and servants. A desperate group of humans elects young Jonathan to lead a mission intent of destroying all the vampires, but the vampires attempt to foil him at every turn. Written by Anon.

Enchanting experience
16 February 2003 | by See all my reviews

I watched this movie in germany, when it was released for the theaters. It left a lasting impression on me. It captures an E.T.A. Hoffmann sort of atmosphere, talks to your romantic and advanterous spirit. Specially when you have grown up in the european countrysite , between ruined keeps in the midst of old forest. Little probably to tickle the northamerican imagination. I found the approach to vampire stories very genuine and without moral judgement. I was glued to my seat in the theater. I was searching for this movie ever since. I hope it will be rereleased on DVD.
