The Movie

"New York City is one of the prime breeding grounds for the vampire, a creature that is very selective in whom it chooses to bestow the gift of eternal life. Among the candidates are the twenty-something Tricia, who desires to experience any life but her own; Jonathan, a young vampire with an attitude problem; and, of course, a few serial killer types like Joel Winter, who search for something beyond their psychopathic lives. But there's one problem. A rogue vampire is turning people who aren't worthy of "the Gift" and it's up to Angie to find her sister and put an end to these creatures with the tainted blood. "

Review

AtM2 has three parallel strands; Sarah K. Lippman is marvellous as Tricia, the new recruit trying to find her way; Joel (Mike McCleery) meanders through the movie trying to find himself, while randomly killing as he goes along, as you do. And Angie (Sasha Graham) plays power games with them all, while seeing the big picture, and applying a hit man whenever appropriate.

Sounds good; and if it had a better director - one who could balance those threads - and a better editor, preferably one who had some basic editing skills, then we could probably forgive the fuzzy sound, and ropey camerawork. And the dire special effects.

But when the director stops the plot to feature a 'vampire expert' telling us innaccurate vampire trivia, then it's hard to keep up the imagination to the necessary level.
