The Movie

What happens when a serial killer encounters something far worse than himself... when he discovers the real reason why he kills? The answer lies with his childhood friend Rachel. For most of his life, Joel has been obsessed with her, constantly searching for the same type of twisted relationship. Then he meets Angie, who is from the same breed as Rachel and soon learns his true identity. He discovers he is a hunter, a vampire.

Review

The movie tells three stories; Joel's life in the past, largely (but not exclusively) in monocolor, with shakey camera to show it's 'his view' (and when it isn't); the story of a Joel, a serial killer, shown by inserts of TV interviews and psychologists views, and , finally, Joels own story, mostly now, of how he came to realise he was a vampire.

It's easy for me to write that; but the movie itself grinds rather slowly through the tale, leaving you unsure when Joel became a vampire, why he doesn't know, and what the xjzyf are vampires doing out in daylight?

To add insult to injury, you really don't want to know. Joel is not the most sympathetic of characters, nor the most interesting. The two female leads are lively and keep the story going - but their idea of vampires is never explained - and is very different to any other vampire in both lifestyle and hunger.

A low budget film, which does excuse some of the slowness, I suppose - but weirdly unsatisfying.
