Funny, well-acted, WELL DONE!
1 November 2013 | by See all my reviews

My husband and I loved this movie for:

1) it's quirky humor -- humor that we found intensely funny (laughing out loud in almost every scene).

One running joke is about Vlad's squeamishness. In spite of going to med school, Vlad failed to practice medicine, presumably b/c of this reputed squeamishness -- well-known to everyone in the small town. So, just about every character says something to Vlad about his squeamishness, as he is faced with increasingly challenging or gruesome tasks. The remark: "Everyone knows you're a pussy, Vlad" is repeated by several characters. The delivery is not teasing or mocking; it's deadpan and matter of fact way, which is much funnier.

2. the political and social context -- very interesting

3. the blood sucking/greedy eating as a metaphor for the communists' greedy thieving of people's land

Tips -- it's not scary -- not supposed to be, but it has a few gross out moments.

LOVED IT!
