It is many thousand years in the future. Vampires once ruled the night but have seen their numbers reduced by fearless bounty hunters. One such hunter is D, the halfbreed son of a human mother and vampire father. When a girl from a rich family is taken from her home by the vampire Meier Link, her father contracts both D and the Markus brothers (a rival group of hunters) to race to retrieve her. As the heroes fight their way through Meier's hired guards, they begin to suspect that the girl may have gone with him willingly.Written by

In this day and age there is no such thing as a "classic" movie anymore, cinema has lost it's respect for many people. The only new Classics are that of the anime genre, these are the movies that inspire so many huge american action movies, as well as TV shows...(James Cameron's Battle..er... I mean Dark Angel....A**hole) You have the Matrix taking famous scenes from every popular anime series out there and calling it original! Let's hope and pray that this doesn't happen to Vampire Hunter D.
Vampire Hunter D is one of the most remarkable love stories to date, it takes calssic cinema and pushes it, it's funny that this movie was made over 10 years ago but it still holds strong in my memory, especially in the DVD incarnation as well as the new movie coming out. If there is anything close to Nosfarateu this is it.
