I liked Point Break, I liked Hurt Locker, and I liked Strange Days, I was pretty confident that this female written vampire story would be far and away superior to Twilight at the very least. And it's true,....
In common, all of them are predator creatures of night that need blood to survive. However, Caleb refuses to kill and Mae gives her own blood to him to keep him alive.
Vampires were not all glittery and award winning, they were mean, cut throat and cruel. The problem this film has, right from the gate, is two uninteresting leads.
