An awesome SCI-FI HORROR, Vampire inspired yarn
This film’s premise is original, far beyond the traditional Vampire genre. A new, genetically empowered race of human/vampire like creatures has come forth, first despised but finally accepted as protectors of humanity. Early on we are told that this race has neither hunted nor even harmed humans for three hundred years. Yet, many humans remain paranoid in their feelings for the Brotherhood as the race is called.
It appears that humans supply the Brotherhood with ample amounts of blood via blood bank type donations done in non-medical venues. All this resulting in a 300 year track record of zero humans harmed. That is until an errant Brotherhood member goes berserk killing and taking blood while also transmitting his contaminated blood to humans. Leaving both the new super race and humans alike facing possible extinction.
The story has a competent, crazed blood sucking super villain who brings a bit of horrific red carnage to the screen as he threatens to destroy all around him. The pairing of a handsome senior Brother and femme fatale cop has all the right chemistry and brings the “can two races get it on” question into play. They have much fun with that concept.
This inspired, dazzling and dark alternate universe contains various elements from our past 100 years of history i.e. flying machines above and 12 inch TV sets below. It all works.
High tension, horror, drama, great sets, atmosphere, very good cast and an original Sci-Fi horror story make this film a fun, rewarding experience. Anyone for Perfect Creature 2?
Another successful film from New Zealand, always a treat as was one of my favourites the Truth about Demons.Now this movie might not excite those who revel in fast paced horror. Or those seeking another Dracula movie, but for those who enjoy another take on the Vampire story…. well you cant go wrong. Superbly acted by the main characters with a very strong support cast who all deserve a pat on the back. And it is so refreshing to hear a movie that is not trying to be or appeal to American audiences. But it is one proud of its roots with New Zealand accents in abundance. A Gothic picture which I tended to assume was set in the Victorian era, with women police and I am sure I caught sight of a pair of jeans. Oh and guys a mothers love is important as without it you get renegade Vampires who fill you up with a virus that has results that, shall we say, are not on the improvement side of ones lifespan. A world where the Vampires are the controlling religious order where Illuminati springs to mind rather quickly. The story about 2 brothers and one is the good vampire and one is not. One who has created a virus to increase the vampire race and the other who (and rightly so) wants to curb these experiments. A new slant on the good vs evil story.Saffron Burrows excels as a Policewoman doing an excellent job catching the day to day bad guys let alone what she needs to do to survive Edgars charming ways. Dougray was a Vampire as Vampires should be In control, charming and in this case on the right side of the law. So I gave this 9 because it deserved it Good on Ya! NZ.
