A Vampire Movie Like in the Old Times
12 August 2018 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

The government secretary Lyubchinsky Andrej Vasilevich (Konstantin Kryukov) and his servant Paramon arrive at an old monastery in the Carpathian Mountains to bring an invitation from the czar to the local monk Lavr (Mikhail Porechenkov) to move to the capital. However Lavr refuses since the local village needs his services and Andrej and his servant stumble upon the beautiful villager Milena (Aglaya Shilovskaya) in a lake nearby the road while returning to Moscow. Paramon is accidentally wounded by Milena and she brings them home to treat the man. Soon Milena and Andrej fall in love with each other. Meanwhile the Master of the Vampires Strigev is brought back to his castle in the mountains by two servants with the intention of raising an army of vampires and capture Milena, whose blood is capable to let the vampires live under the sun. The battle between evil and good are about to start.

"Vurdalaki" is a great Russian vampire movie that recalls the good films from the old times, with vampires afraid of crosses, sun and holy water. The story and screenplay are attractive, combining creepy moments with funny ones. The cast is excellent with a great chemistry between the gorgeous Aglaya Shilovskaya and Konstantin Kryukov. The cinematography is top-notch and one of the most beautiful in recent releases. It is difficult to understand why this film is so underrated in IMDb. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Vamps - Morte Não Existe para o Amor" ("Vamps- Death does not Exist for Love")
