4.0 out of 5 stars WORTH A LOOK Aug. 1 2010
By Mike Silverman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
This is a sick little movie. It's not a vampire flick, but it is about some seriously disturbed people, some of whom have a demented addiction to the taste of blood.

A psychiatrist who has recently faced the suicide of his wife and the accidental death of his mother, tries to overcome his deep grief by resuming his activities as a psychiatrist at a local hospital. He is assigned to the case of a teenage girl who has been cutting herself. Turns out she's not only cutting herself, but others as well, and drinking the resulting blood.

The psychiatrist eventually gets involved intimately with the girl's attractive widowed mother, which turns out to be a bad idea.

The progression of the movie wanders a bit, there is a suggestion that the psychiatrist is being haunted by the presence of his desceased wife..., the bathtub she died in keeps mysteriously filling itself up every night. But this part of the movie never fleshes out and is sort of left hanging at the end.

I was not satisfied with the ending, but.., you might be. It's a matter of taste, but it was a sufficiently disturbing ending to make it fit in with the whole disturbing theme of the movie.

The movie kept my interest up to the very end, and so I have to recommend it as worth watching.

3.0 out of 5 stars A better film than its dishonest promotion would suggest Dec 30 2011
By Robert Amsel - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
This is an interesting little psychological thriller, if more than a bit sadistic, which was unfortunately promoted dishonestly in the U.S. by Lionsgate as a vampire flick. (Lionsgate even changed the title from Daddy's Girl to Cravings.) Many disappointed viewers, taken in by this crooked advertising, hated the film from the get-go.

The movie is about a psychiatrist, wonderfully played by Welsh actor Richard Harrington (Lark Rise to Candleford), who is at an extremely low point in his life. His wife has recently committed suicide by slitting her wrists and his mother is near death from leukemia. Returning to work before he's ready, he takes on a new patient, a teenage girl who likes to cut herself so that she can drink her own blood.

We're told she is suffering from Renfield's Syndrome. (Renfield was the non-vampire character in Dracula who craved blood.) Before long, the psychiatrist learns the hard way that the girl's blood cravings are not restricted to herself.
3.0 out of 5 stars Sucker! Jan. 29 2010

Quite intriguing! The story of a man trying to help a psychopathic young girl who craves blood, and indulges in a number of feats without fangs. He soon becomes a sucker...literally. And suckee! Why the cover artwork portrays a vampiric image, I don't know. No such thing in the movie. But don't get me wrong, this is a very intense flick with great acting from Jaime Winstone and Richard Harrington. I gave it 3 stars because it is slow in developing...could have been a 60-minute cable special...but it is well worth the time if you're a bloodsucker fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Daddy's Girl (Cravings) July 4 2010
By shotora - Published on Amazon.com
I almost didn't watch this film because of the over-abundance of ridiculous Vampire movies, shows, novels, and all else which have flooded the market within the past few months. Personally, I'm sick to death of the entire genre and what they have done to the traditional folklore reguarding Vampires. Yet, it was highly recommended that I ignore the deceptive cover art and watch this particular film. And, I must say that I was not disappointed in the least. The whole product was excellent. The cast, their acting abilities, the story, the realistic quslity of the effects, etc. Wonderful film. Now, I highly recommend that you watch this film.

2.0 out of 5 stars Gritty psychological movie June 14 2010
By C. Oberly - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Some people like the gritty feel of movies that are more along the lines of normal life. This movie, through what I'd heard, was a vampire movie. Not so. What it is is a movie representing a psychiatrist who receives as a patient a mortal girl, not a vampire, who enjoys drinking blood, and shows his attempts to treat said girl. It is complicated by improper doctor-patient relationship with the girl's mother, and has a disturbing ending that keeps you thinking, if you can get that far, but it has too much of the feel of normality for my taste. Not a bad movie if you like that sort, as this is something that could easily happen in the real world. I much prefer the more fantastical styles rather than psychiatric for my "vampire" movies. Again, there are no vampires in this movie, just a girl with vampiric tendencies.
