La Peau Blanche (2004)

A mystery-drama surrounding a dull student’s complicated relationship with a mysterious girl. This very decent film is an interesting approach to the genre. But while it features a unique atmosphere and some very good acting, it offers nothing grand in terms of story or characters. […]

Temptation (2009)

Sangue del mio Sangue (2015)

This 2015 film of Italian director Marco Bellocchio is distributed internationally under the title Blood of my Blood. Sangue del mio Sangue is a decent and (for the most part) accessible arthouse film, but does not offer much for fans of the vampire genre. […]

Demon under Glass (2002)

Vampyros Lesbos (1971)

So, unless you are an interior designer, I suggest you pass this one up. […]
