Female Vampire

Advantages: looks good, great soundtrack, sexy, dreamy
Disadvantages: no story, no horror, low budget

Highly enjoyable for people who prefer style over plot. The story makes no sense. The beautiful Lina Romay wonders around in the nude through misty forests, a lot. For she is a vampire. The last of the Karlsteins. She never says anything and can communic ...

Advantages: A good performance from Cecile de France and some tension...
Disadvantages: ...that disipates very soon, giving way to a film that is never quite as clever as it hopes to be

Generally confounded Not necessarily by the film though I’m not convinced that it really makes sense rather by the idea of trying to review the film without spoiling it all – if spoil it you can. I’m not sure I particularly liked the film though it ...

Fantastic film, if you leave before the end!

I won't let anyone come between us any more.

Advantages: terrifying!!!!
Disadvantages: not one of those movies you can watch over and over!
