BD Review: A Second Opinion on ‘Vampire’

Ryan Daley was the first to catch a glimpse of Iwai Shunji’s Japanese Vampire at this past month’s Sundance Film Festival. The film drained Ryan Daley of all energy, to say the least. Bloody Disgusting’s Corey Mitchell has a very different take:

Just remember, VAMPIRE is no vampire film. It is, however, a film of exquisitely executed horrors – the horrors of the mundane, the forgotten, and the pathetic; from the beautifully clueless to the incrementally delusional. It is a depressive descent into the mind of a murderer with a heart and soul, yet who somehow manages to be heartless and soulless.
