On paper this sounds like something I'd love, but in practice I found it pretty dull.
Dude has a katana, this film is awful. I love it.
Worth a look as it has an interesting slant on vampire lore, but it is a bit slow.
I really enjoyed this movie, left me satisfied while still wanting more. After hearing it was supposed to have a sequel but didn't do well enough to warrant one, I can only admire this movie for the stand alone treasure that it is. Definitely a must watch for anyone who enjoys a bit of campy horror with some great atmosphere and world building.
