This film I feel is breathing life back into the whole 'vampire' genre since it's horrible downgrade thanks to Twilight. I honestly was like 'Oh, another vampire film, I wonder if I'll give it more than 4 stars.'. Boy was I wrong. This film was awesome.
To start off the first few scenes really pull you in. A priest who is willingly giving himself for science? Sweet. After the first 30 minutes the plot really thickens and it doesn't really stop thickening throughout the rest of the film.
One thing I would like to mention... this film was quite shocking and memorable for a few reasons. First off softcore porn much? For a minute I was about to be like...'wow, is this secretly a porn?'. It also was suprisngly bloody. Maybe I'm just use to vampire flicks without a huge amount of the red stuff. Whatever the case is, it felt to be the perfect amount of blood for whatever situation was going at the time. Plus I love gore in my movies, it makes them feel so much more thrilling.
Lastly the ending felt well deserved. He finally obtained what he truely wanted in the end, with no questions left unanswered. It was also quite the beautiful ending if I say so myself.
Overall very well written story, great plot development, beautiful cinematography. The only flaw I found was rare times where the story jumped and I kinda missed the jump and was confused about what was going on.
