Good, despite not a lot happening. Always like seeing Lance, probably my favourite actor. Homer was really miscast though.
Whilst I'm inclined to like it, it just didn't feel special enough.
Interesting and atmospheric little vampire film. The soundtrack was provided by Tangerine Dream and is absolutely fantastic. Some of the dialogue, especially in the beginning, seems a little cringeworthy and trite but overall the script is well done. It really shines in the way that it gives us a humanistic approach to the vampires. The whole thing has a low key, yet powerful and poetic vibe. At times the humor seems to simply detract from this atmosphere instead of providing anything akin to comic relief or real laughs and I think it would have been a stronger film without the comedic elements.
Overall this is quite an offbeat but good film and the soundtrack is amazing.
