Not for Twilight fans - this film is Argento meets Interview with the Vampire. Great cinematography, use of colors and classical score (except for the end credits), all very rare in true independent cinema. All female cast and crew lend credibility to a story which seems to be an allegory of a young girls journey into womanhood. As the protagonist (Isabel) transforms into a Vampire, we are reminded of a young girls confusion and excitement as she experiences her first menstrual cycle.
It would seem the writer or director has something against men, as there aren't any positive male roles in Temptation. And with the not-so-subtle lesbian undertones throughout...
There is some sex, a very brutal rape scene, good editing, some nudity and a bit of violence. Like the sex, when the violence does occur, it's pretty full on.
The only thing that stops this film from getting top marks are the obvious budget constraints - but the filmmakers have worked around these whenever possible. Hopefully a re-make or bigger budget sequel will iron out the low-budget kinks.
Includes a fairly lengthy cast & crew interview featurette, unfortunately the director and writer have the least to say of anyone involved.
