Loved it! Watch the original though (don't be afraid of subtitles, you'll get used to them!)
This was a fantastic bit of escapism. I thought the production value was on par with Iron Sky (2012) and there were some unique and memorable scenes like in the bathroom and then in the bath. There were beautiful sequences like the opening, the car chase and the fight scenes.
I was expecting something like Vamps (2012) with Alicia Silverstone which I really enjoyed, but this was definitely not played for laughs and was fairly gruesome in some parts.
Max Riemelt just became my new favourite male actor! Both he and Karoline Herfurth played their parts brilliantly and they had plenty of chemistry.
I would have liked to have seen more backstory for the vampires, perhaps some flashbacks of their former lives but this is a minor criticism.
If you're a fan of this genre, it's definitely one to watch! 8/10
