London's trendy neo vampires wear fake fangs and heavy makeup during their decedent weekend exploits. While making a documentary about these Goth scene fanatics, filmmaker Holly meets the highly enigmatic and beautiful Vicki who claims she is a real-life

Customer Reviews

Worst movie ever!
Foxyorkies
This movie may not be to everyone's liking but it's at least worth a rental and a little patience on your part.

There's also, briefly, a mystery angle that is entirely without suspense.

I didn't know what to expect when I plopped the dvd into my player. I'm very cautious of horror that comes from the independent circuit since there's a lower caliber of directing and acting involved within these films. However, this is definitely not the case here.

About halfway into the film, good memories of Nadja and Martin began to surface in my mind, which is fine by me since I enjoyed both movies, especially Nadja. The use of a handheld camera as the means in which the viewer sees events unfold in the story is not new, but the way directors James and O'Shea manage to execute it seemed fresh to me.

Admittedly, being a typical guy who doesn't think of himself as too typical, I found that the romantic relationship that formed between Vicki (the vampire) and Holly worked out really well and helped carry the story to its twisted end.

If you like independent horror movies such as Nadja, The Addiction, and Martin, then I'd say go for it. This movie may not be to everyone's liking but it's at least worth a rental and a little patience on your part.

The quality of the film itself was good with a fine level of grain intentionally added to set up the atmosphere. There were no digital imperfections from what I could tell.

This movie turned out to be pretty good. It's a horror film about a woman who is doing a documentary about Goths, whom she calls the 'weekend vamps', and ends up getting involved in a lesbian relationship with a real vampire. I thought this movie was really good. It was also nice to see all the cool Goth characters and to have actual Goth music in the movie from bands like Fields of the Nephilim, Ghost of Lemora, Voices of Masada, Scary Bitches and NFD.

I was really surprised by this British indie film. I expected a cheap, schlocky, exploitative vampire movie, and instead got an interesting, creative, thought provoking chamber drama. Don't get me wrong, this film is not without its flaws, but given its low budget, ultra cliched genre (vampires), and sometimes hackneyed camera work (probably due to budget constraints) it still presents an interesting spin on vampires, and tells a more believable love story than films with 10X the budget(Twilight?!). Lead actress Anna Walton is great in this, tragic,melancholic,ferocious, and haunting, I don't know why she doesn't have a bigger career. Don't believe all the negative reviews, if you enjoy moody, thought provoking indies over big budget schlock fests, check "Vampire Diary" out, its going to be a cult classic someday.

Vampire Diary (Mark James and Phil O'Shea, 2007)

What a good movie this could have been (unlike the other two flicks I had the misfortune to watch the same day), and yet what a bad movie it turned out to be. I gave it a marginally higher rating than When Good Ghouls Go Bad and Troglodyte in the sense that this is the kinda-hot chick who surrounds herself with ugly girls in order to bolster her own charms, but don't be fooled; this is still an awful, awful piece of work.

Vampire Diary concerns Holly (Without You's Morven Macbeth in her screen debut), a documentary filmmaker who is making a feature about "weekend vampires", fringe-dwellers in the goth scene who enjoy dressing up in plastic fangs and going clubbing. She's fallen in with a group of them as she's been working, and has gotten somewhat friendly with the core, comprised of Adam (The Tudors' Jamie Thomas King), Haze (The Journey Home's Kate Sissons), and Brad (Miss Potter's Justin McDonald), a group presided over by a rave DJ named Eddie Strode (Seed of Chucky's Keith-Lee Castle). Things are going along all well and good until a new girl, Vicki (Hellboy II's Anna Walton) shows up at a party one night. Holly finds herself drawn to Vicki, and before long the two of them are in a relationship. It is at this point that Vicki tells Holly that she (she being Vicki) is actually a real vampire, not one of these goth-raver-dressup kids. At some point it's also revealed that she's pregnant by another vampire. At this point, you can pretty much substitute a plot summary for the second half of The Possession of Joel Delaney, so I'll stop trying to explain this.

The one good thing about the film is that Walton, Sissons, and Macbeth are all quite attractive.

Vampire Diary is a great movie considering what it is--the story of a group of 'weekend vampires' and a woman with a habit of recording everything who meet a female vampire by pure chance. Prepare for an unexpected love quadrangle, some interesting lore on vampires, and great use of found footage.

My only complaint lies in a scene towards the end during which one of the weekend vampires' lines were corny (writing) and poorly delivered (acting).
The only moment found footage was in any way awfully used was during a scene at the end. Though it is understandable why shakey cam was used, a great camera angle could have easily taken its place. This is a complete fail on the director's part as far as I'm concerned.

One thing I especially like about Vampire Diary is that the first thirty minutes make a wonderful short story. I almost wished it ended at the water scene simply because of how great the movie was by that point. So, there you go. Give the first thirty minutes a shot. If you find yourself caring about the characters or interested in seeing what happens next, continue on for the remaining hour.

On a side note, I really like the movie poster used for the Amazon Instant Video page.
