As some of you know, I am a huge, huge fan of Doctor Who and so when I found out David Tennant was making an appearance in this movie, I went. I don’t think I even really knew what it was about until I got to the theater and my friends kept mentioning how surprised they were that I would agree to come see a horror movie (I don’t do scary movies). Well, to be honest right off the bat, this isn’t so much a horror movie as it is a great movie with some gore and Vampires and bits of surprise waiting around a few corners.
The story was completely corny (I know it’s a remake–still corny), but it worked well. It was way more gory than I thought it would be, but I like that kind of stuff, so I happy sat through exploding Vampires. Be warned, parents of small children–this movie is very bloody and the Vampires make scary faces before they eat people. Otherwise, I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a good, fun movie. David is great, the main character is funny. I could have done without the lady interest (though the actress has a funny name), but I was able to tolerate her. I loved it and would definitely see it again.
Oh, and one tiny thing I noticed: The Vampires look a lot like the ones from 30 Days of Night. The opening fonts are super similar too. I wonder if this means anything, or perhaps I missed something everyone else knows? Just thought it was odd!
