Audience Reviews for Vampire Diary
After reading the reviews and for the first five minutes of the movie, I really expected a suckfest (no pun intended!). But with the most annoying characters killed off pretty early, this actually turned out to be a really unusual and original vampire movie. I was really quite impressed with it. I don't think your typical Twilight fan is going to get into this, but for anyone who likes their vampire films a little darker, and/or an arthouse slant, this one could be the one for you
Vampire Diary is yet another mockumentary/home movie type film. Here we follow a young documentary filmmaker that stumbles upon a real vampire. They start a lesbian relationship and soon open up to each other. As you do. It's a fascinating idea, especially for a world consumed with the sexy Twilight. It shows the absolute curse of vampirism and the dark side it brings out. It would have worked better as a straight drama without the "documentary" gimmick. The actors really don't seem comfortable. Most lines seemed force and it's like a poorly shot version of any evening soap opera. The relationships, at least, seemed real enough to make the film enjoyable but the whole interview/diary aspect is never fully explored.
I only watched this for Keith-Lee Castle, and unfortunately his...camera time was very limited.
