Movie Info

A man who is not an ordinary creature of the night is on the prowl in this offbeat blend of horror and comedy from Japanese director Shunji Iwai. Simon (Kevin Zegers) and Jellyfish (Keisha Castle-Hughes) are a young couple who have recently met on-line; both are deeply depressed, and have decided to take their lives in a suicide pact. However, while Jellyfish kills herself according to plan, Simon does not; instead, after her death he drains her blood and begins drinking it. Simon doesn't have fangs or an aversion to garlic and sunlight, but he imagines himself a vampire and uses internet chat rooms as a place to search for new victims. When he isn't on the prowl for blood, Simon works as a schoolteacher and looks after his mother (Amanda Plummer), who is slipping into dementia. As Simon begins courting a potential new victim, a beautiful young woman named Ladybird (Adelaide Clemens), he has to deal with a stalker named Laura (Rachael Leigh Cook) and his fellow vampire sidekick Renfield (Trevor Morgan), whose methods lack Simon's level of restraint. Vampires was an official selection at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival.

Critic Reviews for Vampire

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (1)

The storytelling that veers between amateurishness and the kind of oddball dreams you wake up scratching your head about.

While this might sound like the outline of a horror film, director Iwai Shunji's remarkable film Vampire is in truth a quiet, dark, and intense drama, a strange take on the vampire myth, and an oddly compelling love story.

Vampire is an agonizing bore, traipsing along on the assumption that just because it is trying to be different, that does not make it special.
