“I will teach you something you do not want to learn.” [Louise]
on 29 December 2015
In this 2010 German [with full English soundtrack option] vampire horror film petty thief, Lena, almost gets arrested by police officer, Tom, who takes an instant liking to her, but she escapes and ends up at a nightclub, gets bitten by a female vampire [one of a group of 3] and becomes part of their world when she kills a Russian Pimp. Tom investigates the murder case not knowing it involves the vampires but they live the high life and move on the edges of society. Can he track them down and what will happen when he meets Lena again?
There are a number of good features to the story that other films have ignored and this also illustrates some of the ‘real’ issues of being a vampire such as the consequences of immortality and how they get their ‘kicks’ and deal with ‘life’ when the moral restraints are removed. The thumping music in the club scenes, eerie sound track, combined with some stunning sunsets all create a remarkable atmosphere
The single disc opens to 3 trailers then goes to main menu offering play, scene selection, special features [making of, deleted scenes, alternate endings, video diary, behind VFX] and set up [german 5.1 or English 5.1, subtitles on’off].
With swearing, violence, drug abuse and covering themes of depression, self-harm and suicide it’s hardly surprising this is a 15 rating. Not your traditional Hollywood vampire love story, this gives it all a fresh view and is a worthy ***** if you want a darker edge to your vampire movies.
