“Throne of Blood,” part one. The sole surviving descendant of a once-proud samurai clan, Shinku wages a solo war against a powerful vampire clan that has lurked in the shadows for centuries. An epic of horror and martial arts set in modern Japan, but with roots in the feudal past. If you’re looking for vampires that sparkle … this ain’t it.”
