The premise of the movie is that the 4000 vampires decide to 'come out'
and the government is happy to go along. until a renegade vampire starts
random killings. An FBI agent teams up with a VP (vampire policeman) to
catch the killer, and turn up a real can of worms ...
The film takes inspiration from Bladerunner, Brazil and 1984 ... plus
a few score other sources. In fact, the design is so rich that it becomes
a distrction from the worryingly overcrowded plot. Layer upon layer of
intrigue and inuendo, until the violent climax is reached, and I defy
anyone to say what's going on!
For all these excesses, I enjoyed this movie; it came with good ideas
and a new perspective. It's full potential was never realised due to weak
screenwriting and uneven pace. But the mood was great, and the acting
(when not a little OTT), was just right.
Recommended for all serious vampirists - alas, nothing to learn from
the unimaginative weaponry.
