Low budget, sincere film that is lifted up by strong performances and not overextending it's reach. The movie will tell you that it is heavily influenced by Romero's Martin and Alfredson's Let The Right One In. Mostly a slow burn coming of age and morality tale, but one that keeps you engaged.
Not exactly scary, but I still really enjoyed this movie. Great acting, touching, and an original take on the vampire sub-genre.
If you’re into more art house style stuff you’ll like it, it’s not really a “traditional” vampire movie and the pacing felt a little slow. Not a bad movie, just not for me.
Super good. Definitely paced more like an arthouse film, but that shouldn't be a deterrent. It really drove home how revolting drinking someone's blood would be like no other vampire movie I've seen before. On the whole, it was a good, thoughtful treatment of a Martin-esque character. Some horror should be disturbing.
i hate this movie! not sure if it's dumb or i don't want to accept the story. i don't know but that's maybe why i'm on edge about it and it wants me to. think it's pretentious but sad cause i'm human. i suck, so that's the best i can do for this.
