    The bar scene almost saves it, but the moment The Cramps stop playing, it goes back to being dumb, not in a fun way, and uninteresting
    The love story sucks and I hated every character, except for Bill Paxton
    One black actor appears, and dies seconds after
    The placement of music aside from said bar scene feels pretty annoying
    And the resolution should have been applied to that poor kid vampire, instead of killing him in such a horrible fashion

    Interesting and atmospheric little vampire film. The soundtrack was provided by Tangerine Dream and is absolutely fantastic. Some of the dialogue, especially in the beginning, seems a little cringeworthy and trite but overall the script is well done. It really shines in the way that it gives us a humanistic approach to the vampires. The whole thing has a low key, yet powerful and poetic vibe. At times the humor seems to simply detract from this atmosphere instead of providing anything akin to comic relief or real laughs and I think it would have been a stronger film without the comedic elements.
    Overall this is quite an offbeat but good film and the soundtrack is amazing.
