Set during the 1960s in an alternate New Zealand known as Nuovo Zelandia, PERFECT CREATURE imagines a world where vampires and humans peacefully co-exist, with the bloodsuckers the next step in human evolution. This delicate balance looks to be destroyed when an influenza epidemic begins to sweep the human population and one vampire turns to preying on humans. The church sends out Silus to catch the renegade vampire, Edgar. Silus joins forces with a human police captain, and discovers that Edgar harbors dark secrets.Written by
In this movie, Lilly carries a Japanese Type 14 Nambu semi-automatic pistol and Det. Jones carries a German Model C96 "Broomhandle" Mauser. These very unusual pistols - particularly the Nambu - are virtually never seen outside WWII movies. See more »
The world of the film - an alternate world where vampires are like priests who look after humanity and whom humanity respects - is original and feels very solid.
When watching the film, it really is like stepping into another world. The production values are superb for what would be a low budget Hollywood movie and there are some terrific action sequences, but it is more of a sci-fi thriller than a straight out action movie for me.
This film has a lot of ideas in it, something most Hollywood films don't; the role of religion within a state for example.
