Cinema Sound Off

Welcome to another installment of Cinema Sound Off!


Here’s the little summary from IMBD:

In the year 2019, a plague has transformed most every human into vampires. Faced with a dwindling blood supply, the fractured dominant race plots their survival; meanwhile, a researcher works with a covert band of vamps on a way to save humankind.

My Review:

Okay, first off, there is a lot of blood–and I mean a lot–in this movie. I’m all for a great vampire flick, any day. But jeepers, this one was really full of blood. Gross sounds, too. Yikes.

BUT, having said that, I really liked this story. Mostly the STORY, though. The acting…not so much. Felt a bit campy when it came to Wilem Dafoe’s character. And what was up with Ethan Hawke’s raspy voice? Sounded cartoonish to me.

The whole idea of a world of vampires and them running out of blood because the humans are dying out–heck yeah. Loved that storyline. And I liked Ethan’s character. The movie showed his struggles with being a vampire very well. Liked the depth there.

So, if you can stomach the gallons of red stuff spilled in this very violent movie, you might want to venture out to Blockbuster and rent it.

I’m giving it 3 tickets.

Here’s the Trailer if you want to see it in full: [youtube=]

  1. Hmm. Maybe 2019 won’t be such a good year? 😉

    I agree, that’s a premise to die for! (pun totally intended)

    And… whoah. That demon/thing in the trailer definitely didn’t look like any sparkly Cullen! LOL

  2. I’ve been wanting to see this movie but still haven’t had the chance. A lot of people have said the acting let down an otherwise interesting story. This is the first review I’ve read that said it is full of blood though, but I kind of expected that from a vampire movie that wasn’t Twilight. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

  3. This movie scared the crap out of me! Too much blood!!!!! lol But I agree with you that the story was really cool. I just felt like it had a great premise but didn’t follow through with the actual delivery.

  4. Lol, yeah I felt the same about the sounds and gore :0)

    This film had all the potential elements that we both enjoy. . .hope our review helps others decide whether or not to go and see it.

    Fun CSO, can’t wait for the next one!
