The Rating System

All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

Vampires (2010)


Director: Vincent Lannoo


Premise:
A film crew is invited to document a family in Belgium's vampire community. The crew finds out the vampires are a lot like humans just with a slightly different set of problems and rules to follow.

My Take:
The movie offers a unique take on vampire lore and confines itself within the world it's created. This is a good thing. It's also thick with dark comedy and social satire. 
My biggest drawback was that I never really cared about the main family. The Father is a strict in his rules and ways. The Mother seems crazy. The daughter wants to be human again. And the son wants to bed the wife of the vampire king. None of this matters much to me.
Still, there are far worse vampire movies out there.

Rating: In the middle
