Anno 12090: in un futuro remoto come il passato, la nobiltà immortale dei vampiri domina il mondo delle tenebre e tiranneggia su un'umanità che non si è mai più ripresa dall'ultima guerra nucleare. E quando il Conte Magnus Lee morde il collo della giovane Doris, solo una persona potrà impedire una trasformazione irreversibile. Ma la lunga sagoma che si staglia in un tramonto irreale in groppa ad un destriero meccanico è molto più di quanto Doris si aspettasse: in lui convivono il bene e il male, la luce e l'ombra, perché lui non è né un uomo né un vampiro, ma il simbolo vivente del continuo conflitto tra due nature. Lui è D, il cacciatore di vampiri.

of money spare and thought hey i might aswell boost up my anime
collection, so i had a look around and all i could find were
the crappy MANGA LTD budget Dvds (vampire wars and so on)and i
was about to loose hope of finding anything watchable but after
20 mins of browsing I noticed Bloodlust sticking out of the crap
like a diamond in the rough, and i immediately purchased it,and
i wasnt dissapointed.
This film is very well made, the animation, is fluid,crisp, deep
and detailed and by far superiour to anything else out there produced recently
i couldnt believe how much of an improvement it was compared to the animation
from the older OVA, it was truly breathtaking, especially the battle scenes
which are incredibly detailed and fluid.
The voice acting in this film is also of a very high standard
all of the characters sound exactly as you would think,
which adds to the realism of the animation (quick info:VHD was
one of the first anime to be made for a british dubb
originally,and then be translated to japanese).
The plot of the film is well written, keeping you on the edge of your
seat throughout, only slowing down to emphasise the end climax,
which is well realised.
This film is heart wrenching and action packed, definately a
must have for anyone, who considers themself an anime fan.
The pace of the film almost seems too fast and action packed at first, but the scenes are so creative, you end up just going with it. I love the style, which continues the cross between gothic vampire images with a sci-fi aesthetic seen in the original Vampire Hunter D. It was also nice to see a story which breaks from the traditional save the girl formula, with few characters definable as just 'good' or 'bad.
This has definately become one of my favourite animations, with seemingly effortless imagination and am engaging script which is as concerned with the characters individual struggles as well as the plot. The action can get a bit gory, but never seems inappropriate for the 15 rating. Its about an hour and a half long, and includes a short making of feature which I haven't watched yet.
During WW II as one of the Luftwafte air raids hits London, Reginald Parker, a successful actor, is knocked out and heavily concussed. Upon awaking he believes himself to be Edward Grey, the notorious Brighton Strangler he has been portraying on the stage!
Clocking in at just 67 minutes, The Brighton Strangler just about has enough time to get in and do it's job excellently. Something of an under seen gem, it's a film that has enough creepy menace about it to reward the black and white thriller fan. Boasting excellent sets, some very neat camera work from director Max Nosseck and a fabulous lead performance from John Loder, I personally feel that it deserves to be seen by more people. Typically it's a picture that rarely gets aired on British TV, and when it does it's sadly tucked away on BBC 2 at some ungodly hour in the AM. Until film's like this get decent exposure from our TV schedulers then they are going to remain criminally under seen. So keep your eyes out for this one, the formula may now be seen as old hat, but transport yourself back to 1945, out in the London smog and be wary of that hatted man coming towards you.........8/10
