Review

A pretty feeble film, whichever way you cut it. Boringly slow, we are treated to a fifteen minute voice-over, probably added after review audiences lost the plot. However, it fails to explain why the vampire, who looks fairly healthy, will 'go to sleep' in three days time if he doesn't reclaim his lost love, reincarnated as a virginal student. It also doesn't explain why she has to be a virgin, but I kinda worked that one out ... it's to give us a montage of attempted seductions, all poorly scripted, all badly directed, none particularly erotic.

The film is determined to titillate, and we do see a fair bit of naked chest; but it's also so contrived and wooden that I found it all rather embarassing. We fumble and get it all wrong in Real Life ... I thought vampires were supposed to be cool?

All in all, you really wonder how the movie got made; when will they realise that silicone is all very well, but not enough for a movie.
