i won't give anything away, so buy it, rent it, borrow it, or steal it. hope this helps.
Although I thought the ending was so perfect and unbelievably if you watch the credits you will see that the last scene of the movie was actually shot in the exact place in Iran that it says in the movie!! Man they must be "dying" for that film money over there in Iran!!! BUT...how funny would it have been to have it setup for a sequel with those two in Vegas in that hearse-condo and just going nuts! If I was a cable network like FX, AMC (probably not AMC because of TWD), TNT etc I would pitch this as a series but more as a dark comedy where it follows the film script up until they get into the fight and they end up in Vegas! I would watch it! And if I'm honest I'd probably like it more than TWD! TWD has some of the most ridiculous directing, dialogue and acting (there are some GREAT actors on that show though...although bad writing and directing can make any actor look bad so I shouldn't blame the cast.) But the show has been getting better from season to season. I love when TWD super fans get pissed when it doesn't win anything at the Emmys or Golden Globes.
And this one has the virtue of being clever. What happens when regular Joes are granted the powers and immorality that come with the vampire experience? Especially when one of the Joes is a slacker with more enthusiasm than ambition? Well, funny stuff happens.
And some philosophical puzzlers pop up too, to keep our mind busy. Just what is the moral basis for draining people of their blood to continue your own vampire existence?
I recommend this little vampire for those with a couple of hours to spare. I even liked the ending, which all too often in low budget films disappoint the viewer.
This is a low budget movie that was filmed a couple years ago (just coming out on dvd). It is definitely watchable and somewhat original however the characters are not fleshed out enough (no pun intended even though this is a "vampire" movie) and honestly it get's fairly boring near the end. It's meant to be a dark comedy, though it's not really funny. Worth a rental watch if you watch these types of movies but I can't see myself owning it.
As others have stated, the f-word gets used a lot in conversations between Bart and his best friend, and their friendship was an "Animal House" blend of bromance and immature squabbling that was a major vehicle for the humor. It kept things light enough to help out that porpoising in and out of seriousness, but it struck me as going a bit too far in that direction, at times. Something about the way Bart held his head in his hands as he contemplated a choice of horrors before him, or when he was wondering for the thousandth time why this was happening to him, touched me. As he is driven toward an insane, amoral, true vampire's orientation near the end , I wasn't laughing, and it was easy to forget the silliness elsewhere in the movie.Read more ›
