I had been out, watching a new horror movie at the cinema. It had got very good reviews, so I just had to go. Didn’t regret one bit. The move really pulled me in, kinda realistic in building up the story and making it believable, despite its rather simplistic theme: Basically, a city where the streets were full of vampires at night, a small army of vampire slayers arrived, they fought each other with stakes, guns, crossbows, hunted each other by car, by foot, any means possible.
Blood and carnage enough to be a splatter movie, enough humour to relieve us from the worst tension now and then, but also pulled us in enough to really scare us. The movie ended with the good guys winning of course, with a little cliff hanger. A followup in the works?
I guess the best sign that it scared me and almost made me believe it was real, is that when I walked home I was a bit anxious when I couldn’t avoid the shadows. Maybe that slayer that got away would appear and drive a stake throuh my heart…?
