Review

Like most reviewers, I had great difficulty wondering what on earth was going on; unlike one twit of a critic, I do not believe for one instant that this was intended as a comedy; far from it. The degree of amateur-hour overacting confirms that the whole cast were set on winning Academy Awards.

The basic plot included some great ideas; the pain and confusion during vampirification; the anger and resentment at the new 'lifestyle' - but all this lot could manage was anger (shouting) fear (whimpering) and pain (screaming). So opportunities were lost.

The direction was appalling, though marginally better than the editing. Games with light were another possibility. But not in this movie. Casting was verging on the insane, with the lead vampire improbably portrayed by a Lolita-esque actor, while Our Hero was suitably undermined by an octogenarian escapee from Camp Alztheimer.

Some bad movies are so bad that they're good; Don't even think about it - this one is just plain bad. Period.
