Mildly interesting vampire flick from the director of "Midnight".
25 September 2006 | by See all my reviews

"Heartstopper" was directed by John A.Russo and is based on his own written novel "The Awakening".The plot is simple:a young doctor named Benjamin Latham condemned and put to death as a warlock in 1776,is back from the dead in present day Pittsburgh as a fangless vampire who's saliva is a deadly poison and who can walk only during the daylight hours.He meets up with museum curator Moon Zappa,falls in love with her and comes across a copycat serial killer who also seems to have the same vampiric affliction and dispatches women in a style similar to Latham's.The premise of "Heartstopper" is actually pretty unique and original,but the film is surprisingly dull and uninteresting.The cinematography is grainy,the acting is decent and the heavy metal soundtrack adds a raw edge to the urban atmosphere.Give it a look,but "Midnight" is a much better film.7 out of 10.
