Jim Jarmusch’s contribution to the vampire genre is a slow-paced, atmospheric, character-driven piece with very little plot. A well-made and beautifully shot art-piece that has at its core very little to do with vampires, but a lot with longevity. […]
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.
