Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The narrative may flag, but the doomsday atmosphere and George Liddlea(TM)s production design remain vivid until the final, blood-splattered reel.
Rotten: Hawke gives his all here -- or maybe just half his all -- and it isn't quite enough: He's trying to be soulful, but he really just looks a little tired. The real delight is Willem Dafoe.
Fresh: For the lowbrow, the thrill is a level of fleshy explosiveness reminiscent of David Cronenberg's Scanners. No one dies quietly; he must either detonate like Hiroshima or burst into juicy red chunks of viscera.
Fresh: Writer-directors Michael and Peter Spierig equip this unpretentious, low-budget, high-functioning shocker with some sharp satirical teeth, and Dafoe has a ball behind his Manson goatee.

I'm totally into the whole Vampire Genre, unlike my father, who absolutely loves to mock the idea, and we went to see the movie. A MUST-SEE. My dad, who hates Vampies like this loved the movie. There was action for the guys, a little romance and heart-throb for the girls, and horror for everyone between. It kept you on the edge of your seat until the end. There's a new meaning in I Heart Edward now...
