What is bad about this film is the plot, coupled with direction/editing that sucks any sense of excitement out of the film before it gets to your screen.
Take for instance Dracula is able, using his mind powers to lift a guy off his feet and make him float towards a noose. The film suddenly cuts as apparently we can't see him die, because that would be too exciting and we only see the results. Odd too, given these powers that in the end Dracula chooses to fight it out with a sword.
Dracula's guest in this film is Kelsey McCann who is quite pretty and does her best at an English accent. She is imprisoned by Dracula who puts her in a cave, that's got a cage door across the front to prevent her getting out. Her love finds her and they exchange conversation through the bars. She says something like "He took something that I was saving for you" (meaning her virginity), though we never see that because that too would be too exciting. Thus, it's overly-big then on dialogue. Dracula and guest spend quite some time at it and all this leaves one bored and waiting for something to happen. Then, later, they talk about what did happen, but not that we were allowed to see it.
Somewhere inside Bled, the new movie from Charlie Hutson (Dark Reality), is a really interesting movie straining to get out. The linked subjects of vampires and addiction are inherently interesting, especially in our current addiction-obsessed climate; I've seen the parallel touched on in a few movies, but I've never seen a full-length treatment of it. While there's no denying this is one, it is anything but interesting.
Sai (The Mirror's Sarah Farooqui) is an artists who's on her way up. She meets the mysterious Renfield (Ghost Rider's Jonathan Oldham) at a gallery opening, and he turns her onto a mysterious new drug that (he claims) is harvested from the bark of a tree in Eastern Europe. Okay, except that it looks a whole heck of a lot like blood. When Sai inhales the smoke that rises when you cook the stuff up in a spoon (can you see the incredible subtlety here?), she finds herself transported into a dream-world which gives her all sorts of artistic inspiration, not to mention erotic fantasies about her friend Royce (Sunday Evening's Chris Ivan Cevic). As time goes on, naturally, she needs more and more of the drug to be transported, and things get worse when her pal Eric (Shadows' Alex Petrovich) swipes her stash after his first taste of the stuff.
I don't think mentioning vampires in any film where one of the characters is named Renfield is all that much of a spoiler, even when the word "vampire" never actually pops up in the movie. But the whole vampire thing is a subplot here, actually (another take on the subject matter that could have made this a far more interesting movie than it actually is); instead, the main focus of the movie is on addiction.Read more ›
There is nothing artistic about this movie. It is cliche, silly, and not at all frightening. Everything about it screams awful, low budget, softcore adult film: the acting, wardrobe, cinematography, effects, lackluster romance, and most of all--forced plot.
Normally, I can sit through a B or C grade horror flick for solely the entertainment aspect, but this movie was just unbearable. It seems to sacrifice the entertainment aspect in an attempt to be "artsy," yet it comes off as mediocre as the main character's paintings.
If you are interested in a thought-provoking and beautifully rendered vampire film, invest your time in something else, particularily "Let the Right One In."
