Les morsures de l’aube (2001)

A man stumbles through Paris’s night-life looking for a man he doesn’t know. Based on a novel by prize-winning French author Tonino Benacquista, this film (also known as Love Bites) is full of untapped potential and minor plot holes. […]

Nocturna (2015)

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. […]

From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series [season 2] (2015)

With season 2, the show is leaving the plot of the original film behind and ventures out into unknown territory. The writing of some characters struggles with these changes a bit, and an abundance of new characters means that we do often spend not enough time with each of them. […]

From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series [season 1] (2014)

The first season of the From Dusk Till Dawn series re-tells the plot of the original film, tweaking and changing certain elements and characters, and adding a larger back-story. Despite some structural problems, this show should be enjoyable for fans of the film and for “newcomers” alike. […]

The Thirst (2006)

The Thirst is a B-movie which has had lots of ideas thrown into it, without much of it working, or any of it forming a decent, coherent plot. Poor writing and especially poor characters defeat the attempts by actors, set designers, and practical effects artists to create a solid film. […]

Death Hunter (2010)

It is a shame that filmmaking enthusiasm and can-do attitude must sometimes result in complete failure.

There is no vampire in the world as deadly as the boredom induced by this film. […]

Temptation (2009)

Temptation is an honest attempt to produce a decent B-movie. Many of the cast and crew put a lot of effort into this, and I like the premise and some of the ideas in this film, but an unpolished script, a small budget, and a relative lack of experience lead to a result that on the whole is not really satisfying. […]

True Bloodthirst (2012)

Ideas from several other films have been harvested in order to create True Bloodthirst. The end result is a decent (if run-of-the-mill) B movie which ranks above similar shlock – in terms of quality, not in terms of originality. […]

Southern Gothic (2007)

A low-budget B-movie that certainly has its weaknesses, but overall manages to convince; mostly thanks to the acting, and thanks to a style of filmmaking that never tries to do something it cannot achieve. […]
