Movie Info

Not all of us those amongst us who crave blood are Vampires and not all Vampires crave blood. For those of you expecting anything remotely resembling Twilight, Nosferatu, or Bela Lugosi, VAMPIRE may not be your cup of red elixir...Simply put, VAMPIRE gives new meaning to the word, vampire. Simon seems like a fairly normal, average young man who's devoted to his teaching job and ailing mother. Underneath the surface, however, things are not what they seem. Simon hunts through online chat rooms and message boards, searching for the perfect girl: beautiful, shy, and suicidal. Simon has a particular condition: he is compelled to drink blood.(c) Eleven Arts

Critic Reviews for Vampire

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (1)

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

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.

Audience Reviews for Vampire

First off this is NOT a typical vampire movie, but a strangely hypnotic film regardless. It is a beautifully shot Canadian film, created by a Japanese director and American and Canadian cast. It is also based on some true events in Japan. It is more of an uncomfortable commentary on human blood-thirst and a controversial look at suicidal obsession and isolation from depression.

Shunji Iwai was clearly trying to do something different with his take on the vampire and serial killer genres, but the movie really doesn't work, coming off more like a pretentious bore than anything scary or sinister.

Missed it at HKIFF years back, have been looking for it for years, & finally. Shunji Iwai's own aesthetic interpretation in Western Cinema. Not as delicate as his work for local Japan market, yet much better than expected upfront already.
