Another of the later Hammer films, Vampire Circus combines the vampire subgenre with the subgenre of the creepy circus. While I am not a big Hammer fan, some of the creepy circus aspects in this film work very well. […]
This 2018 animated film is based on a well-established franchise, and yet it came and went without anyone really taking notice. The reception was cool, the film barely made its money back at the box office, and to this day the film has no entry in either the English nor the German Wikipedia.
This is not really surprising because while this film cannot really be called bad, it is undoubtedly rather unmemorable. […]
Although this season is often maligned by fans, I quite like it. I am happy with the shadowy-organisation plot, the new character constellation works, and there is some outstanding writing to be enjoyed. […]
This has always been my favourite season of Buffy, even though it is possibly not the best. It features a couple of strong episodes, but also a number of weak ones. One of season 3’s strengths lies in the fact that the combination of new and returning characters provides an excellent mix. […]
Season 2 has improved acting and it introduces additional characters. The tone and the themes are much darker than in season 1, and the vibe of despair is stronger than anywhere else in the first four seasons. But there is still a good amount of humour mixed in at times. […]
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 – 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. […]
Daylight Fades wastes some decent performances and a workable premise by going absolutely nowhere, and doing it very, very slowly. […]
I am hoping to re-watch the entire show over time, and I will post my thoughts here, even though everyone on the planet knows the show already. […]
