Horribly dubbed version of a German vampire movie. Only women are turned into vampires because men are "too stupid and greedy" to handle immortality. This band of lady vamps begin killing indiscriminately and bribing security to let them into malls so the can steal whatever they want - so in other words, they become too stupid and greedy to survive eternally.Merely average effects. The dubbed voices were awful. Not a pleasant experience.

Stylish and paced well. What starts out like a typical Vamp flick becomes something more than advertised. Basically the if the Lost Girls got made this would be the end result. Thoroughly enjoyable.

Though seems like another clichéd Vampire film, "We Are The Night" kicks in with interesting perspective about feminism, stylish directing, and with energetic approach.

An unexpected surprise. I went into this film hoping to slum into the escapism and instead discovered an unlike gem in the vampire cannon. Slick without being exploitative and introduces some new food for thought in the discourse of vampire morality.

This is a vampire film with both expected and unexpected twists.
The threatening tide of lesbianism never quite seems to break and the styling of the "heroes" as consumer mad new money vampires is a great idea... that never seems to get beyond sitting round a pool at midnight in bikinis.
Played against Berlin's Love Parade ecstasy and cocaine culture it does have its moments, not enough to be great, but certainly interesting.

Stylish if shallow vampire flick, but one that can't escape the curse of the cliche...

One line summary: Girl power among German vampires suffers from love triangle.

Louise, Charlotte, and Nora kill and drink the blood of every one on a small exclusive jet. Then they jump out before the crash; nice touch.
Next we get a look at Lena, a teen delinquent: pickpocketing, credit card theft and fraud, assault and battery on a policeman, evading arrest, underage drinking, vandalism. She evades policeman Tom after stealing the credit card of a Russian mobster whom Tom was chasing. Tom catches Lena, but she gets away from him again. Lena's mother seems to be intimate with Lena's current parole officer, which might keep the number of arrests down.
The vampire women host raves to meet people who will not be missed, plus drinking and dancing. Louise is always looking for just the right pair of eyes; she likes Lena's, and lets her into a rave. Louise bites her in the ladies' room and Lena starts to change quickly, as in sunlight sensitivity the next morning, plus hunger for blood. She returns to Louise the next night. In passing they mention that there are only 100 vampires in the world, and all of them are female.
After some enjoyment with the three older vampires, Lena makes the mistake of going home. Tom meets her when she departs from her mother. He promises not to rat her out about stealing from the Russian pimp. They go for a coffee date, and start getting to know each other. Tom can tell that something big has changed in her life, and it's not the new boyfriend that Lena claims.
Tom starts investigating; Lena keeps learning more about the other three vampires.
Tom and his boss set up an assault on the hotel where the vampires live. Nora is lost to sunlight, but the other three escape. Lena prevents Louise from killing Tom, which complicates things considerably.
Charlotte says good-bye to her almost ninety year old daughter, who recognizes Charlotte before she dies. Then Charlotte traps Louise and Lena in order to die from the sunlight of dawn.
So only the triangle (Lena, Louise, Tom) remains. How might that end?


Cinematography: 10/10 Excellent. Some of the better vampire healing FX I've seen.

Sound: 9/10 Excellent save the dubbing, which is merely good.

Acting: z/10 Karoline Herfurth was fine, basically playing three roles. I liked the performances of Nina Hoss and and Jennifer Ulrich as well.

Screenplay: 8/10 A foot chase starts in complete darkness, but continues in full light. No, thank you. One strike on continuity. The rest of the story hung together rather well.

Like the Anne Rice vampires the story is more about the "human" element in the vampires. There's the rush of invincibility and beauty mixed with tragedy and heartbreak of those coming in an out of the immortal's lives and how they try to fill that void of loneliness that becomes increasingly worse over time. Although there is violence the movie is not based on violence like so many vampire killer movies- it's more like a brooding character study of the gift and curse of the vampire. The CGI in some frames is absolutely beautiful- especially Charlotte's last scene. Otherwise there isn't much of a plot- it's thin and predictable and they had to throw in a lot of chase scenes to keep it going. Interview with the Vampire is still better although this is still a decent watch. It's not an exploitation horror movie and if you're looking for lesbian sex you're not going to see any.

A pretty decent German Vampire movie. I enjoyed this a lot.

Interesting vampire movie. Reasonably original and edgy. Starts and develops well but loses its way at the end.

Solid performances all round.

Just another legitimate vampire movie. It could have a better ending though.

A picture postcard for the Berlin nightlife wrapped up in a neat bowtie of stylish pulp fiction. This German thriller vampire film was odd and sexy and a refreshing take on the genre. Euro chic!

Now THIS is how you do a vampire movie. The germans deliver. You got your lesbian fangers, blonde studly hero, action and gore galore. It'll wipe the antiseptic taste of the Twilight movies right out of your mouth.
