    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.

    The comments for this film seem to be generally on the negative side, so I feel I should chip in to say I thought this was amazing. A fantastically moody, thoughtful-yet-exciting Vampire film, packed with great characters and a wonderful soundtrack. 5 years 8 months ago

    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.
