There is a 2010 short entitled Blood Runners but if that was almost a post-modern noir then this, its almost namesake, goes back to an era that could be said to exemplify noir. Though I don't believe it offers us a film noir experience, prohibition, gangsters and crooked cops are the order of the day – and, of course, vampires.
So we are in 1933, and this small town has its share of speakeasies and bootleggers running alcohol. The police aren’t exactly concerned – after all they are all making a tidy sum by skimming from the top. However a new speakeasy has opened up – Chesterfields.

This isn’t the greatest film ever but it had a degree of charm, some neat ideas and didn’t outstay its welcome. 5.5 out of 10.
