Release date: 2011
This was one that I will find difficult to review, a film that I felt (as I watched it) owed a little to perhaps the addiction or habit, though not as skilfully crafted.
The film carries an unusual premise that I rather liked, though perhaps the sum total of the film needs more polishing and is restricted within its own budgetary constraints.
|Griffith feels mental and physical anguish|
|wake up dead|
|vision of a vampire|
|Jan and Maggie|
I wasn’t as sure about the actual plot, as opposed to the backstory (incidentally the flash back scene worked rather well, actually giving a feeling of a different age) and felt it could have used some tidying. I did rather like the opening around Maggie however and the colour filter gave the flick less of a feel of San Francisco and was reminiscent on New York – maybe why the two films I mentioned at the head were brought to mind. The ending is nicely dour, which I liked but I felt the film was a little over long, perhaps some cuts are needed to make it flow better. That said I did fairly enjoy it for what it was. 4 out of 10.
