User Reviews

 
Had potential, with an equal amount of minus and plus points.
11 December 2019 | by RatedVforVinnySee all my reviews

A film that had some potential but a bit too stylistic in delivery. Concerns a policeman, that has died and then possessed by a Vampiric type creature. Gruesome but not in the greatest or delightful way. Stars Luke Goss.
