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 cinematic release under the Tales from the Crypt banner is a somewhat lacklustre comedy-gorefest with a weak story. […]
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. […]
Nocturna – known in the UK as Vampire Blood – is an interesting and not-too-bad vampire film set in New Orleans. The film had the potential to be good, but has a number of short-comings that drag it down a bit. […]
Having been forced to flee his Transylvanian home, Count Dracula travels to New York in search of the love of his life, who has been reborn as a supermodel.
A lot about this film feels dated, but it is not any worse than the vampire comedies you know from the 1980s. […]
A toxic mix of religion, patriarchalism, and casual racism provides the backdrop to The Unwanted, a mystery-thriller that plays with vampiric elements. While the film feels somewhat unsatisfying as a whole, it boasts an apt atmosphere, very good performances, and engaging character interactions. […]
Dance with a Vampire (a. k. a. Justin Redwood: Vampire Hunter) is a low-budget vampire film with a number of humorous elements. It is not a good film, but considering the budget and the amateur crew behind it, it is at least an honourable achievement. […]
This Chilean film – sold internationally as The Vineyard – mixes a telenovela style with a demonic story, and then throws it onto the big screen. And that is about as bad as it sounds. […]
A good-looking but largely forgettable ‘90s film with Eddie Murphy as the title character. The film has a comedic premise, but its main plot contains far less comedy than expected. With the comedic elements sidelined into sub-plots or side-character appearances, they sit awkwardly next to the horror-drama vibe of the main plot. […]
Blut is an episode of the long-running German detective show Tatort. Great performances and cinematography make this an enjoyable foray into the horror genre. […]
