This review is from: Martin [DVD]  [US Import] (DVD)
A 1970's budget horror but done in an art style that plays with the genre to tease out vampirism as less than a creed but a type of delusion. Sucking blood from people arises from a sense of complete alienated autism from the world. The young boy, Martin who makes up the tale is locked within his own mental state.
To satiate his perception of the world he feeds on blood, not before drugging his victims and then slitting their wrists. Socialised into the role by his elder cousin he tries to break out of his prison leading to the grand finale.
The film is anything but cliched as Romero goes out of his way to debunk every stereotype about vampires. It is less about horror and more about psychology and therefore only those of a certain disposition should watch.
Thrill junkies should avoid it, it deals with themes not excitation.
