News & Interviews for Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust
Critic Reviews for Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust
Vampire Hunter D, you might say, is the best sci-fi vampire western to come along in ages. Not that many others come to mind.
If you appreciate fine animation and edgy material, this blood's for you.
Brooding, violent, and steeped in its own lore, the film is a genre pastiche that's fun to watch.
For a vampire movie with such an exciting concept, Bloodlust is low on tension and chills.
Audience Reviews for Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust
Just as good as the original, but with more modern art. I do wish the English voice soundtrack was louder though, I nearly ran out of volume bars.
An adventure/action/drama ride done right. You really don't need to know anything about the novels to get into the film. Yoshiaki Kawajiri deserves way more credit as being a mere "cheap thrill" director. The guy knows how to create cinematic moments.
Easily one of the best anime movies ever made. Athough I'm not a big fan of vampire flicks, I loved the story, characters and animation. If you ever get the chance, see it!
