1.0 out of 5 stars Utter Drivel, 14 Dec 2012
This review is from: Vampires Brighter in Darkness [DVD] (DVD)
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 one.......in 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.
