Not a Common Film
9 February 2021 | by bemyfriend-40184See all my reviews

A lot of low ratings and bad reviews attached to this movie. Fully undeserved. Because it's not a common film. It's not an attempt to make something like "Underworld", with vampires vs. lycans. It is an acid trip of a film; with painful scenes from the Reconstruction Era; combined with some kind of vampire fantasy, so we get the worst of all worlds. It's not Bloodrayne for the boys. It's not Twilight, for the girls. It's not Gone With the Wind, for the Southerner. It's not Roots, for the African-American. It's the strangest mash-up of ideas, I've ever seen in a movie. It's not a common film.
