While the general world is very similiar to the premise of the "vampire society living in our world" there are a few twists. The "Ghoul" society is a secret society that exists in our world, and eat humans.
However, we take the side of the Ghouls in this story against the human police organisaiton that hunts them down. The Ghouls themselves are split into sectors, and fight each other.
The world developed is an interesting one, and very Japanese. Acting is very good, as are the special effects. Overall, a pretty interesting film, really not pure horror or action film, but a touch of both.
The confusion of the main character, who spends most of the film trying to come to grips with what he is, is a nice major plotline. In this film, its the Ghouls that seem to have the humanity, not the humans.
If you like vampire cinema, Japanese movies, horror, or science fiction, you will definitely like this.
