What are you waiting for? SEE THIS MOVIE!
4 April 2000 | by SteevhSee all my reviews

I also saw this at 'Dead By Dawn', and was blown away.

Briefly: Woman inherits house, reputedly the last resting place of the dreaded Rico Mortiz- a priest who got bitten and was cursed with vampirism. On her first night there, she and some friends find the skeleton of a huge bat, and a book of her family history. As the tale unfolds, we see in flashback how the curse grew, and how it affects her now.

It really couldn't be more entertaining if it tried, and seems to have something for everyone. Okay, it's another vampire movie, and as such, says and shows absolutely nothing new or innovative- but everything is done with such style and charisma that I found myself completely ignoring all that and just hanging on and enjoying the ride. The pacing is breakneck, the script is hilarious- but played mostly, wonderfully, straight- the actors know their jobs and do them well, and the effects are over-the-top and fabulous. All this is overseen by the assured, surprising direction of Shaky Gonzales- a man of whom you will be hearing a lot more from.

It looks like it cost four times what it did. It's shiny and gorgeous and you will fall in love with it. Go and find it before all your friends- and gloat later at your leisure.
