Perfect Creature is set in a noirish, semi-dystopian steam-punk world in which the balance between humans and vampires is threatened by a rogue element.

Cambodian film Nieng Arp takes traditional folk-lore and a known genre-premise and combines it into an overly long mess of a film that nobody should have to watch. […]
Not actually a vampire tale, but a non-Doylean Sherlock Holmes film I watched by accident. Entertaining, but far from outstanding. […]
