Jacob, like the audience, is unsure of the nature of his existence, despite a number of telling signs that lead us to believe he is a vampire.
Carl Manes
There are no exspensive special effects but the movie is well acted and directed.

I really enjoyed this movie, it is surprisingly well shot and paced, especially for an Indy. It has lots of atmosphere, and the director successfully creates an ever increasing sense of dread as the film unfolds. Also, the San Francisco area locations are well represented and add a nice sense of scale and intimacy to the proceedings. Some may find it less then action packed, but there is a lot of promise on display here that well cancels out whatever growing pains might be evident. Nice job.

This movie offers a fresh take on the genre. I found myself easily identifying with the main character, and the melancholic mood reminded me of Let The Right One In, another of my favorite vampire movies. The choice of the scriptwriters to focus on realism was a welcome change from the overly supernatural offerings that are so common. If you like vampire flicks that are thought provoking instead of kill-a-minute (although it has its share) get this movie.

This is a very nicely done story of a man who discovers that he is turning into a vampire, while at the same time falling in love with a young woman who becomes increasingly worried about him. It was far better than expected, well acted and photographed.

Don't know if this movie came out in theatre but it should have. This is how a vampire movie should be done. Vampire movies always turn out into a romantic soap opera instead of a horror movie. I'm not saying this is the scariest vampire movie, but it's how it would be if it took place in 2012. This makes the list of my top 20 vampire movies. I saw it by myself. I liked it so much invited a friend and saw it together. This is the type of movie they would show on Sci Fi channel during the month of October in celebration of Halloween. Enjoy the movie.

Darn it I loved this movie. I've been thinking about it for days since seeing it. It's one of those films that lingers on the brain long after it's been viewed.

The acting is superb and there is such amazing attention to detail. The script is truly clever and, although a slow burn of a movie, watching it smolder and build to a bonfire is truly engrossing.

As others have said, this isn't so much a horror film in a traditional sense; it is more psychological horror intertwined with romance and a quite well executed one at that.

There was one lingering question that I still scratch my head at a bit and wish had been clarified, though:

<VER TINY SPOILER FOLLOWS!>

I'm confused about the dude who played the Caprisun drink in the car... I thought he was earlier dead and drained on the table so wasn't quite clear on how they were getting more "juice" out of him in the car ride.

<END SPOILER>

In the end, it's just a smart vampire flick for folks who like their vampire flicks smart, and the taste of it will linger on the lips and palette long after you've digested it. ;)

I agree with the 4 star ratings I read before I watched this. This is a simple yet RAW vampire movie. There are no exspensive special effects but the movie is well acted and directed. The story pulls you in and holds you there. I have to admit I don't like movies that don't explain the origins of something but this one did not bother me. I think you will enjoy watching.

If you enjoy vampire movies and am tired of the same old same old, then this is a must see DVD. Its slow paced but not boring. Bloody but not gorey. Its definately not a gorefest and its definately not twilight, not a chick flick. Its about how a regular person like you and me deals with an illness he doesnt understand. Watch this movie as soon as you can.

The film is a modern take on the vampire theme minus the supernatural and magical elements. Twenty-four year old Jacob (Zak Kilberg) is a recluse who paints and works nights as mall security. He meets Mary (Maya Parish) who likes the nose candy and has her own issues. Through a series of events Jacob discovers he likes blood, human blood like a fat kid likes cake.

He develops cravings which gets him into the expected mess as one might guess when someone craves human blood. You don't see everything that happens. This is to create the feeling of Jacob's black outs and the production's budgetary concerns. Such is art.

The movie ends at the point it would start to make an interesting film such as "Psychos in Love" which I liked better.

Parental Guide: F-bomb, sex, nudity (Maya Parish)
