Christopher M. (GilesGoatboy) from FAIRFAX, VA
Reviewed on 10/14/2013...
Lately the vampire genre has been done to death, with long-running tv series, etc. But somehow, this fine little film has slipped through the cracks, while infusing new blood into the tired fomrula. I had no expectation of this film being anywhere near as good as it is...but now I would rank it among the best in the genre which boasts very few good entries beyond some of the classic tratments based on the original Bram Stoker novel. Among these would be "Brides of Dracula", "Vampire at Midnight", and "Blood and Donuts"
Zak Killberg is surely the most realistic and sympathetic protagonist of any of these films...his portrayal of the confusion, fear, hesitation, and abysmal lack of self-esteem and loneliness as he struggles to cope with his "illness" and its consequences is nothing less than masterful. It is obvious that this young man is a great actor not yet discovered. His own personality is nothing like the character he so brilliantly portays in the film. Killberg is upbeat and confident. Contrast his own character with the persona he portrayed and it seems worthy of an Oscar! This is certainly a film that deserves a much greater audience and it may very likely become a treasured cult film in future.
