<edit: updated the video to the correct trailer/>
Shiri’s Prediction: Been a while since there was a decent vampire flick and I’ll be honest, I’ve missed then. Zombies are all well and good, but now that the CDC has us prepped for the apocalypse, it may be time to harken back to the days of ye olde Nosferatu and their almost-sex. This one could go either way, really. I’ve always enjoyed films wherein one follows a character (or pair of characters, in this case) through history, especially if they make different mistakes and get up to different types of trouble in each era. I’m also intrigued by a pair of female leads, but concerned it may be a gimmick to suck us in and then end up as a disappointing red herring when they “break up” over a man or resort to whatever the vampire equivalent of hair pulling is. The heavy hand on the trailer score is a big, huge ALARM ALARM and I fear our vampires may end up taking themselves a bit to seriously; without a Lestat to their Louis, we are left to wallow in their pain and… *snore* What? Sorry. I fell asleep just thinking about it. I’ll wait for some reviews on this puppy before I spend time on it.
Luke’s Prediction: From the makers of “Interview with a Vampire” is not a ringing endorsement, at least in my book. Beyond that the music and the blood waterfalls were a bit over the top.
But, mother and daughter vampires, on the run in a world of only male vampires, interesting. The rest of the trailer looked quite good, and might have been a few too many brooding boys in pale makeup for my taste. Looks like there is more to the whole vampire mythos going on here as well, which could be fun. Almost looked like they were a cult or a secret order. Not very often you see an explanation of vampires, a history or origin story, so to say. And some of my favorite vampire movies have female vampires: The Hunger, Innocent Blood and Let Me In. I am hesitant to say this looks good, but it does and I will be catching it on cable or Netflix.
