Release date: 2005
This was another incarnation of Kindaichi Shonen No Jikenbo, this time as a TV special and live action. It was based on the Case of the Vampire Murder Legend and we have already looked at its anime variant here, which was later than this live action version but it needs noting that I saw the anime first.
The characters were changed around a little, altering the dynamics to a degree and further characters were added in and this expanded the story a little but, essentially, it was the same murder mystery and thus, if you have seen the case before, there was very little in the way of mystery.

This was okay but nothing too special.5 out of 10.
