Product Description

From the mind of Director and Writer Jason Davitt comes a Fantastical tale! When cute, wide-eyed Toby comes out of a disastrous relationship, sister Charlotte sets him up on a blind date with a difference. What neither of them realise is that the date is with Lucas, a 1500 year old vampire. Before long, Toby is plunged into the dark world of demons, black magic and the supernatural, where nobody is safe and nothing is what it seems...

An exciting British feature film brimming with a whole fresh batch of upcoming and easy-on-the-eye local talent, Vampires: Brighter in Darkness brings the romance and terror of the Twilight series to the UK, with a queer twist and oddles of sex appeal.

1.0 out of 5 stars Utter Drivel 14 Dec 2012
By txacoli
I saw this film at a friend's house and was originally planning to buy it, as I'd read some reasonable reviews of it. All I can say is, you guys who gave it three stars must have been watching something else, or your tolerance for cruddy films is very high. This film is not a good fact it's execrable. For some inexplicable reason, I sat through the whole thing, mainly because it was so laughable in parts that it amused me slightly. The acting was appallingly wooden, with particular kudos going to Dan Briggs and Rebecca Eastwood, who play Toby Brighter and his sister, Charlotte. There was enough wood there for a full set of bespoke kitchen units.

The plotline was confusing and just plain odd, with a special shout-out going to the guy who is exiled in Egypt (I forget his name), who was the campest thing you've ever seen, although I suspect he meant to be menacing. Give it up love, you won't work again in this town!

Abigail Law-Briggs plays the goddess Lilith (or Lil, as she was known in our house) and, poor love, they gave her so many teeth, it made her look like I imagine Janet Street-Porter would look if she were psychotic and didn't take her medication for three weeks. Yes, the prosthetics were poor, as were the special effects......particularly the flying monsters, which were unintentionally hilarious.

I was pleased when it was over. One reviewer said that Jason Davitt (who wrote, directed, produced and sewed all the sequins on himself!!) is a name to watch out for in the future. I couldn't agree more. When I next see his name on a film where he's doing everything including making the tea in between takes, I will click straight onto the next film and buy that one instead.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious 14 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase
After having been recommended this film by Amazon I decided to give it a chance. I was so entertained just for the pure comic value. It's a mish mash of twilight/interview with a vampire/ poltergeist and Dante's Cove all thrown in.
It has no story line in it whatsoever which didn't seem to matter as I spent most of my time doubled over in agony as I couldn't stop laughing. I thoroughly recommend this film if you don't take it as a serious film. The guys are hot which helps it along a bit but if you have any sensitive dogs or cats around then I would advise to keep them in a separate room. The incessant hissing from all actors involved bar the Chinese Midget could set them off..

1.0 out of 5 stars Should have stayed in Darkness! 30 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase
Other than the odd eye candy, this film has nothing to recommend it! Uneven colour balance in the lighting and poor scripting, combined with inept SFX and a cast whose acting skills leave much to be desired, make this I dire experience!

2.0 out of 5 stars I watched it - and threw it away. 9 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase
Vampires are fun, and the genre is also ripe for camp send-up - but this movie was really boring. The script and the acting were very poor. I threw it away, rather than inflict it on some unsuspecting charity shop customer!

2.0 out of 5 stars So BAD it's not quite good 25 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase
Two cute male leads. Reasonable actors too but shame about the lines and the CONSTANT growling/snarling, but God knows where they got most of the others. I might have enjoyed it a little more if I hadn't seen "Vamperifica" recently - and that's the only reason I've given it two stars instead of one.
I almost gave it another star for the extras - if you're watching it definitely give 'Tighty Whities' a watch and 'Bunny the Vampire Slayer' is worth a look too.

Not been able to sit through it all in one hit! Cute/sexy looking main actors - but who wrote the dialogue? Drivel..... As someone else has commented too much snarling - did the writer think the only reaction vampires could have when meeting is to snarl at one another?

I think my local Am Dram group could do better - but I don't blame the actors entirely, faced with a script like this they did their best.

I have not been able to watch all the way through yet - somehow I am not sure I will manage to do so. Such a shame!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brighter in Darkness 10 May 2012
By Astra
This DVD is very entertaining. It is unusual for me to sit through a movie without fidgiting or falling asleep. I am in the entertainment business and as such I am very critical,

I almost jumped out of my skin a couple of time much to the amusment of everyone present.
I loved it and cannot wait to see it again
