Anyone worried about the staleness of the vampire sub-genre can breathe easy. This film is completely engaging from start to finish. It’s a really good film to introduce any stubborn horror fan to foreign films (subtitles). And Ron Perlman is the fuckin’ man in this one, as usual. He adds a lot of comic relief as well as just being a great presence in to watch on screen. Of course all the actors are great, particularily the main character. And there’s a surprisingly fitting Hitchcock inspired score throughout the film that really gives the horror of the events some class as well as shock. See it soon, you won’t be bored, I promise. (By the way, whoever that chick on the cover is ain’t in the movie, sorry guys) Posted By gorypass on November 5, 2009 @ 3:09 am Log in to Reply ★★★☆☆ Its intersting story always passed it by in the video story but thought I should check it out its not bad.

I thought the final battle was thrilling and I cared what was going to happen to the characters which is a big tick in my mark book. This film should be watched by more than 5 others on here!

Probably one of my fav films I have seen in the past few years. Watch this one and see….

Posted By Bytor on April 18, 2012 @ 2:54 pm Log in to Reply ★★☆☆☆ I turned this off 3/4 of the way through. It got way too boring. Maybe I’ll watch the rest tonight… or maybe I’ll throw it in the mailbox.
