Vampires get Ugly

I had the highest of expectations from this movie. I, personally, am NOT a follower of the Vampire craze sweeping the nation.This movie unfortunately was a let down, I’m sad to say. This movie starts off really good. Very good, in fact. The premise that humans are becoming extinct because of vampires, awesome. Then knowing that they are beginning to starve because of blood shortage, even more awesome. When the vampires don’t drink human plasma, they turn into grotesque creatures. They creatures are definitely horrifying. The first one the main character kills turns out to be his neighborhood farmer. In one of the opening scenes, as they are doing blood substitute testing, a vampire explodes in a bloody mess. AWESOME!

I love movies with blood. OH boy does this have blood.

Besides the blood and awesome story. It just didn’t click with me. I don’t know what it was. I just wasn’t as into it as i wanted to be. The story had set-up a great movie. It fell flat. Lots of screaming. Lots of fire. Lots and lots of blood. Corrupt business men. This is a definite improvement on the vampirical genre. unfortunately it wasn’t all i was hoping. The make up on the monsters were brilliant though!

I give it a 6/10.
