This adaptation of Bram Stoker’s novel is probably not the most exciting one. And it has (for good reason) a TV-feel to it. But it is remarkable in its own way, as it has been claimed that it is the film that first introduced a love-motive for Dracula into Stoker’s story. […]
This Canadian drama aims for horror, suspense, and eroticism – but it does not really achieve any of those.
While it is a very good-looking, well-produced film with a good cast and a mesmerising performance by its female lead, it unfortunately feels a little bit style-over-substance and its plot falls mostly flat. […]
This has always been my favourite season of Buffy, even though it is possibly not the best. It features a couple of strong episodes, but also a number of weak ones. One of season 3’s strengths lies in the fact that the combination of new and returning characters provides an excellent mix. […]
Transylvania Twist is a rather lame comedy, but in its harmlessness it is simultaneously also rather inoffensive. Some of the jokes land, but quite possibly not enough to justify watching what is – in the end – a rather poorly patched together project. […]
An impressive mixture of arthouse style and body horror, The Addiction lives off its visuals and off the magnificent performances by its cast. […]
This vampire adventure drama from Russia is a strictly-by-the-numbers affair. The film (also known under titles such as “Ghouls” and “Vamps”) looks very good, and there are hardly any bad or disappointing elements in it, but it is bogged down by the fact that it is such a middle-of-the-road story. […]
Season 2 has improved acting and it introduces additional characters. The tone and the themes are much darker than in season 1, and the vibe of despair is stronger than anywhere else in the first four seasons. But there is still a good amount of humour mixed in at times. […]
This cinematic release under the Tales from the Crypt banner is a somewhat lacklustre comedy-gorefest with a weak story. […]
A man stumbles through Paris’s night-life looking for a man he doesn’t know. Based on a novel by prize-winning French author Tonino Benacquista, this film (also known as Love Bites) is full of untapped potential and minor plot holes. […]
A US Interpol agent is sent on a mission to a remote European village that is suffering from a suspiciously high death rate amongst young women. Are there supernatural forces at work, as the superstitious villagers seem to believe?
This German-Yugoslavian co-production (released under English titles such as Cave of the Living Dead or Night of the Vampires) suffers from rather lame writing. It is not a particularly bad film, but I cannot think of a single reason to watch this. […]
