Quotes

Lowell: Okay. We all know it's a vampire. Nobody's kidding themselves here. The trick is to separate the diseased vector - the evil, if you will - from the healthy one.
Eric: Right. Like a vaccine. When you take what makes you sick and you turn it into a cure.

Quite Impressive
10 December 2005 | by knight_armourSee all my reviews

The filming and overall effects for this movie are quite good. The story, however, may be a bit weak. It's curious how they tried to reconcile a scientific approach to the whole vampire lore with a supernatural one. Looking at other recent movies of similar vein (pun intended) like Blade and Underworld, it probably should have stuck to either the supernatural approach or a scientific one. Brande Roderick acting in this movie was a sure sign of it clearly being a 'B-grader' but as it turns out, she didn't really get in the way of some of the better actors. It's unfortunate she didn't show much skin because that might have been a plus. I'm always suspicious of movies where the cast looks too gorgeous but this one didn't let that slow it down. It's a fairly entertaining movie and definitely a must-watch for vampire fans.
