Sinister, Original and Underrated
12 May 2018 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

The psychiatrist Stephen (Richard Harrington) has just returned to his work in a hospital after his wife and former patient committed suicide in the bathtub of their apartment. His mother is in the hospital with a serious illness and Stephen is vulnerable and dependable on drugs and is trying to sell his apartment. The director and his friend Eisner (Mark Lewis Jones) offers more days of medical leave to Stephen but he refuses. He is assigned to treat Nina (Jaime Winstone), a teenager that self-inflicts cuts on her body and her mother Liz (Louise Delamere) does not help, giving no information about her daughter. Stephen gets involved with Nina´s problem and learns that she might have Reinfield syndrome. What will Stephen do?

"Daddy's Girl" is a sinister, original and underrated vampire film. The plot is very well developed, making the story believable, and the surprising conclusion is absolutely non-commercial. This film is for adults that look forward to original movies and it is easy to understand the apparently silly attitudes of Stephen. He is absolutely vulnerable with the losses of his wife and mother; wants to help his patients; is needy and is easily seduced by Liz; cannot call the police since he was unethical and with the investigation, he would lose his job and his license. It is funny and ridiculous to read that he has a psychic plumber and prefers to ignore his advices. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Sede de Sangue" ("Thirsty for Blood")
