There are times when films just look something special via the trailer. They have that je ne sais quoi, that indefinable something. Sometimes, however, it is definable... it is in the look or the dialogue, perhaps even the music.
When I looked at the trailer for the Sanguinarian I thought I knew what it was… The music caught my attention, but not as much as the look and the look paled next to the dialogue. Yet all in all, as I watched the actual film, this was so much more than the sum of those parts.
The Hamiltons) that vampire’s sire themselves.
Will you enjoy the film? This is a difficult one to answer. I really enjoyed the movie; the look, the soundtrack, the dialogue and the character exploration. I was left wanting to watch it again, immediately after it had finished. I also know that many people watching the film will dislike it; the film is a love it or hate it… for those that love it the Sanguinarian will become a fast favourite. 8 out of 10.
