An Original Vampire Film Mostly About A Fathers Love
9 June 2017 | by (Over The Rainbow) – See all my reviews

This is a pretty original vampire film, and it was refreshing to see Latino characters.

The movie is less about becoming a vampire and more about a parents intense love for his son, who just so happens to have been turned into a vampire. Finding himself in this very unreal and unusual predicament, he endeavors to figure out how it happened and what to do next to help his beloved son, who is turning into a monster. There are few "action" scenes. It isn't your typical "horror/Vampire" movie. With that....you can tell if this movie might be up your alley or not.

The acting is relatively well done and the pace is steady, with a nice smooth rise in tension. This story was so original I just didn't know what to expect next, and that kept me interested and engaged.

The cinematography/camera use, lighting,score, and editing, were all done very well. Not only for an independently made movie, but for any movie made even with much higher budgets.

This movie isn't about gore and blood but does show some. The main difference here is that it is done to further the story and not to illicit shock or to gross out. It isn't overly done, and it's done well.

The make-up effects are simple also, but effective.

There are a few dream sequences that add to the tension, but honestly I felt like after one or two of them, they were used more to add "creepiness" and "scares" then to impart any value to the unfolding of the story.

The ending was a bit of a let down, but still worth the ride the film took me on.

I actually found myself reviewing this movie a lot more harshly then other independent films, but it is a testament to the QUALITY that I saw in it. It was a film I enjoyed for it's originality and subtleties and for it's smoothness and classiness.

I don't recommend this to people who are strict horror fans. But if you are like me, and do enjoy (good) horror/thrillers, and appreciate originality AND enjoy delving into the human condition.....You may want to give this movie a chance.

Im glad I did.
