Frost is a film that has its strengths and its weaknesses; and possibly more of the latter than the former. It meanders around for quite some time, with the final half hour (the actual horror part of the film) feeling much more interesting and atmospheric than the rest. […]
Blade: The Series is a TV show conceived as a continuation of the three Wesley Snipes Blade films, but it does not star Wesley Snipes. The show’s concept is very promising, but it is bogged down by writing issues. Severe competition and high production costs meant that it was not continued after the first season. […]
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. […]
