This said, the movie sucks. There are some peaks and some bottomless holes, the peaks being unexpected (intended?) comedy. I actually liked the talking dogs, cause it came from nowhere. Much of the acting also seemed to come from nowhere, but in that case not being a positive thing. The tag line "one month to sunrise" is excellent, but nowhere in the film that issue is handled. Too bad. The effects and cg, in my regard, is flawless, so good I didn't even think of them at times. The plot on the other hand is so neglected even a bastard stepson in the early 1500's would have been loved more. What the hell were the writers thinking? The lines, my god, the lines! The motivation for the characters, hello?! And what stopped the super-vampire from just ending the poor vampire-in-the-making Nielsen in the end? Hopeless.
Upsides: 1 The beginning. Scary, until they show too much of the vampires. 2 Sebastian and his struggle at the parents' house. Excellent. 3 The bathroom scene where Saga peeks out into the mayhem.
Downsides: 1 The plot 2 The script 3 The so called "directing"
