So under rated it hurts
12 September 2006 | by jaunty101See all my reviews

Take it for what it is a low budget film I believe that this film is one of the most under rated film I've ever scene, yes the script is a little bland for some of the other charters but all this is made up by the fact that Martin (William MacDonald) has some brilliant lines.

Martin charter is one of the best I've ever seen being abit of a philosopher I love the Nietzsche aspects of his actions and speech and this film could of simply have been two hours of him in a room ranting and id have watched it.

If this film would have had a bigger budget it wouldn't have been the same, the bar seen is a grate example of right number of people right time, if you want a club full of helpless people or 1000's of vampires get blade. The money could have been spent on big budget stars or better CGI that's true but then again it would lose its appeal.

If you were to give me a choice between this and the matrix or the war of the worlds crappy remake I will take shelf life (subhuman) every time
