Captivating and fresh.
27 January 2002 | by charon_apollynSee all my reviews

Unlike many films of this genre, The Breed offers a new look at the world of the vampire. The vampires in The Breed are remenicent of the great Count from Bram Stoker's famous novel.

The vampire effects are well designed and aid heavily in bringing the characters to life. Actors Adrian Paul, Bokeem Woodbine, and Bai Ling offer some good performances here.

The story of The Breed revolves around the creation of a buddy/buddy cop scenario in which one is human and the other is a vampire. Adding to the story and performances is the stunning gothic scenery that offer an Old World European look.

The Breed is a good film that transcends the traditional vampire flick and offers something new by replacing bloodshed for plot.
