Better Than I Expected
7 July 2002 | by garland-schaefersSee all my reviews

Made in 24 days for around 3 million dollars, this could have been another cheesy B-Movie Vampire flick. But its not. Set in a totalitarian future that the director admits is inspired by Terry Gilliam's Brazil, this is a moody piece where vampires are characters, not just monsters. Summary: if you go into it expecting Spielberg and big-budget effects, you will be disappointed. If you go into it expecting Corman and shoddy acting, you will be very pleasantly surprised.
