“A small-town farmer’s son reluctantly joins a traveling group of vampires after he is bitten by a beautiful drifter.”
Scream’s first solo movie review. 😀
This vampire movie has been on my radar for a little while now and after work one day this past week, I decided it was time to indulge my curiosity.
Boy meets beautiful girl one night. He pushes himself on her non-stop. He seriously needs someone to explain consent to him however, due to his insistence, girl gives in and makes out with him. Then bites him, and you know what? Good for her. She probably should have just drained him dry and saved herself a hell of a lot of hassle, but this is one of those horrid, love at first sight plots.
She brings him back to her vampire family and they insist he has to earn his place. He needs to kill someone himself. Despite being perfectly fine forcing himself on a person, he can’t KILL one because he’s a “good guy.” That’s the implication at least.
To be perfectly honest, there was about 15 minutes of this entire movie that make watching it worth it. It’s 15 minutes of murderous glory in a bar. The only other saving grace is Lance Henriksen of Pumpkinhead fame and the infamous, Bill Paxton.
In my opinion, this is not a staple vampire flick. You can skip it entirely unless you’re really interested in that bar scene.
Have you seen it? What was your opinion of it?
