Audience Reviews for Strigoi
See, I wanted to like this movie. I liked the movie being set in a small village in Romania, it's a unique place to set this movie. The problem I have is with the actors performing in English instead of Romanian. It just makes the movie look bush league. Not only does it strain credulity that every person in a SMALL ROMANIAN VILLAGE would speak English, it just makes the performances of the actors even worse. I would almost bet that this movie would be better if the actors were speaking in their native tongue, probably not much better, but it'd be an improvement. The movie also has a good idea and I was intrigued by the strigoi and how it fits into Romanian mythology, but the movie just sort of comes and go without any real impact. You feel the same at the end as you did at the beginning. Maybe it is supposed to be atmospheric, but the direction and cinematography doesn't match the atmosphere at all, so I just didn't get into the movie at all. Having the actors perform in English was a terrible idea, there's no real comedic timing or delivery from ANY of the actors, and the atmosphere is shit. So really this movie fails on almost every ground, when it could've been much better.
Strigoi, at least in America, is more zombie than vampire. It's a hybrid that works well for humor as well as horror in this peculiar tale of murder, deceit and the supernatural.
This movie is great fun. I wish I could remember it better. I was struggling to stay awake. I'll tell you more when Is ee it again.
