“Out Of The Light, Into The Night”
You know, I do have to admit something…I had some decently high hopes for this movie. For some reason while I was watching it, I was disappointed. Now, I fell asleep after the first hour, (and it wasn’t because I was bored) and the phone rang so I was on that for about a half an hour and by the time I started it back up again to finish it, I just wanted it to be over so I could smoke a cigarette.
But now that I’m here, typing a review, I have to admit I liked it.For a vampire flick, it was pretty good. It was different, I’ll give it that. Of course we all know (at least I hope we do) that this film is based off of a graphic novel, much like Frank Miller’s “Sin City”.
The acting was pretty decent, and believable at best. There were some pretty cool scenes involving rampage and destruction.The only thing I didn’t understand was why all the vampires looked Japanese…I never read the novel, so maybe I’m missing some information here.Pretty gory, but not like “SaW” gore.Good cast, good setting, and a pretty decent idea.These vampires (like I said I don’t know their back story) decide to raid a town in Alaska after the sun has set for 30 days. Clever eh? I dunno I thought so.
There are SO many bad vampire movies out there.But this one is worth checking out.I mean, I thought it was pretty good for a vampire flick.So grab or rent the DVD in a weeks and give this one a chance.Personally, I wouldn’t have wasted money to see this in a theater…but this is coming from a guy who wasted $8.50 on Transformers. Not that it was bad, but I probably could have waited for the DVD.
7 out of 10.
