Underworld (2003)

The first film in the franchise by the same name, Underworld is a very good-looking film placing its interesting characters in a very well-constructed world. This may be popcorn entertainment, but it is good popcorn entertainment. […]

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. […]

Death Hunter (2010)

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. […]
