Vampires be crazy.
A strange commentary on resource conservation and prejudice. Strange, but has some pretty good twists in the plot to keep the audience into it.
Let me start off with a resounding “hell yeah” to Willem Dafoe, he’s awesome. It’s a good thing that he is so great, because the rest of the cast does only an okay job of keeping the whole film moving and alive consistently.
The lighting changes between night and day were really good at lending a foreboding air to those who tried to cross into the other.
The vampire stuff was okay, but some of the gore was overdone. I starting wincing during some of the violent scenes, not out of nausea, but because I couldn’t believe I was going to see more of the same.
Just never really “gets there” as a complete movie experience.
Probably good enough for a college-age crowd. It certainly could drive some sense into the average “Twihard”.
