Slow but fascinating vampire movie,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Midnight Son [DVD] (DVD)
Jacob has a rare skin disorder that means he has to keep out of the sun so he works permanent nights as a security guard. He also finds that no matter what he eats he is always hungry until he drinks the left over blood from some steak packaging. When the janitor at his place of work tells him that we don't stop growing until we're 25 and he is like a caterpillar turning into something special like a butterfly he realises that there is more to his condition than he thinks. Meeting Mary; another lost soul, and his search for more blood to drink lead to all sorts of complications.
This is a clever and realistic take on the vampire legend. We never find out how Jacob got infected but it seems to have been as a child, maybe he was born that way. The story is slow and sometimes you just want to slap him for being pathetic but it won't lose your attention. None of the characters are sympathetic but they are well drawn despite the sometimes clumsy acting.
If vampire movies are your thing then this is a worthwhile addition to your collection.
