Editorial Reviews

Professional Killer, Frank Ng, has been contracted to murder a Chinese crime lord. The routine hit goes awry when Frank discovers his mark is actually a vampire. Suddenly, the tables have turned. The professional killer the hunter has become the hunted. This is no ordinary vampire of myths and legends, however. Frank has come face to face with the vengeful Kiang-Shi (Chinese vampire), and it vows to inflict upon Frank such unbearable pain that death will be his only sanctuary. Cursed, Frank is condemned to helplessly witness the horrific and merciless deaths of those he loves, everyone he knows, and anyone he merely brushes by. His anguish intensifies when he dooms his younger brother to this terrible fate. Enlisting the help of a Chinese herbalist, knowledgeable in the ways of ancient lore, and an unlikely team of vampire hunters, Frank strikes out in a final battle against the Kiang-Shi and his minions of the dark. Tonight, Frank Ng will discover that to destroy the monster, one must become the monster!

Review by Johnny Butane
What were you doing six years ago? Seriously I want you to stop and think about it; where were you in the year 2000? Can you imagine having a project you started that year that you can now, today, finally say is complete? Hell, in six years I've gone through three websites and actually made a bit of a name for myself. I've never even held a normal job for that long!

Rob Fitz has though. For the last six years he's been making a low budget action/horror hybrid called God of Vampires, and now, in December of 2006, he can say it is complete. The very definition of low budget filmmaking, Fitz spent every dime he had and all the free time he could spare making this movie a reality, and if you're from New England chances are you've heard of it at one point or another. It's a bit of a legend around here.

All right, so the film is done. Six years of blood, sweat, and high credit card payments; and finally there is something to show for it. The big question is: Does the end justify the means?

Going into this movie knowing as much history as I did and knowing from personal experience how difficult it is to make a short film, let alone a feature length like this one, the answer is a resounding "yes". God of Vampires is full of action, gunplay, geysers of blood, chainsaw deaths, and some truly creepy looking vampires. It's the kind of flick that may not go over so well in the confines of your living room watching it alone, but with a bunch of friends and a case of beer, or even better at midnight in a local rep theater filled with like-minded individuals, it's a blast.

All right, a bit on the plot, just so you know what we're dealing with here.

This film is a lot of fun. It has style and substance, humor and buckets of blood. It is clear that this film didn't have a big budget and as a result, the audio and sometimes the lighting suffer, but if you can get past some loud music and dark scenes, you will find a movie that will make you laugh with glee and hold on to see what happens next.

The characters are well drawn and Uncle Peng is a great asset, since he explains the origins of Chinese vampires and how to fight them. They are very different from Western vampires. If anyone has watched the Mr. Vampire series from 1980's Hong Kong, you will be well-versed in how to combat a Chinese vampire. The folklore Uncle Peng relates is real and gives us a whole new vampire style movie.

But add in a contract killer and a band of motley guys from the local Chinese restaurant and you've got a load of fun. Guns, katanas, baseball bats, whatever they can get their hands on is used to fight the vamps. The acting is for the most part pretty darn good, the storyline is solid and the film has a kick-ass ending.

This film has all I love about independent film making. It is a product of a writer/director with his own vision, putting his heart, soul, and his own money into making the film. It plays with ideas, and film and lighting styles, without some Hollywood committee saying, "Well that's not commercial." or "Maybe the slower members of the audience wouldn't get that."

The actors are committed to the film and their roles, even the bit roles have a solid weight to them, the lead role is wonderfully done.

With all that being said (and I love this film), it shows its origins. The soundtrack sound volume is very uneven, sometimes swamping the dialogue totally. Sometimes the lighting is so dark you are basically watching a radio play. BUT always there is a stylish, quirky, dark humor, well-paced action that sweeps you along, a whole different vampire mythology, and a plot that ends with a wonderfully different twist.
