In the chase scene at the club, the human detective shoots at one of the bad vampires. While he shoots, the slide on the gun is all the way back, indicating that the gun is empty, yet he continues to shoot and bullets continue to fire from the gun. See more »
Okay, so it was pretty dreadfulbut still, I sort of enjoyed it!
Like the curate's egg' this film was good in parts, but they weren't very big parts.
I have always enjoyed the twist associated with 'good vampires' and I guess I am still waiting for a film to properly use it.
This film was too outré and grotesque (in the original meaning of the word) for it to have worked as anything other than an over-the-top dance-macabre of a film; a sort of Grand Guinol of the film world. Unfortunately it never really achieved this distinction and instead we are left with a mishmash of themes and failed attempts at being something that it never quite achieved.
The script and the acting were pretty deplorable and the direction was anything but tight, though still one can sort of envisage what was intended; and those stolen fleeting glimpses serve to supply enough motive to keep watching. In the end this continued attention is utterly frustrating, since the ending manages to further let one down and, indeed, the rest of the film.
I don't say 'Don't watch this film!' I would, however, warn you to keep you expectation low, and not to be too surprised if it fails to live up to them.
