Long a favorite with Japanimation aficionados, Vampire Hunter D is based on the third of Hideyuki Kikuchi's novels about a futuristic human-vampire hybrid warrior. In the year 12,090, vampires are the rulers of the night, something to which Vampire Hunter D is helping to put an end. After the daughter of a rich man is kidnapped by vampire Meier Link, Vampire Hunter D is hired for ten million dollars to find the girl and bring her back to safety. ~ Rebecca Flint Marx, Rovi

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.
A mind-blowing amalgamation of unusual elements and ambitious design, its parts are greater than the whole. But oh, what interesting parts they are.
One of my favorite characters is given justice with two great movies that just make him one of the most appealing characters in Anime...
Surprisingly entertaining and very clever.
A stylish bit of modern anime despite a finale that muddles its momentum.
If you're interested in exploring anime for the first time, then Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust is a good place to start as any other.
An uneasy blending of sci-fi elements, gothic horror, spaghetti westerns and Beauty and the Beast romance.
Bloodlust is both an animation landmark and a beautifully realized film.
It seems written by old hipsters with a bug-eye to the teen export market.
A sober action film as viscerally surprising as it is surprisingly affecting.
