A Well-Made Gorefest, 11 Feb. 2013
Based on a popular graphic novel, this is a beautifully directed, excessively violent updating of the 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' tale. It's fairly predictable and well acted by a quality cast (surprising to see the lovely Taka from 'The Last Samurai' as the ultimate evil demon, for example). The monster special effects are mediocre at best, and Saya, the protagonist, is a humourless blend of Buffy and Angel. But she's had a hard life ...
