It sucks, but not very well. Aug. 30 2013

I may have watched one or two movies that were worse than this movie, but fortunately I have blocked them from my mind. I hope I can do the same for this concoction. There is nothing of value in this film, unless we could use it instead of water boarding at Gitmo.

Vampire Dec 8 2013

I went into this knowing what it was. The twist in the end was actually really good. I wasn't shocked that it wasn't a supernatural thriller. Nonetheless, it was a psychologically disturbing movie that I was able to watch all the way through until the end. It has a very dark and understated theme.

The first English-language film by Japan's greatest auteur. What could possibly go wrong? Dec 23 2014
By Erik Ketzan - Published on
Verified Purchase
Vampire is a 2011 film by the Japanese filmmaker Shunji Iwai. Over 15 years, he's built an international reputation as arguably the best director of art films in Japan. His All All About Lily Chou-Chou is a colossal masterpiece, and his other films are well respected by viewers who could be called the Criterion Collection crowd.

Vampire is Iwai's first English-language feature, and unfortunately it's a colossal dud. To the point where the studio apparently, in an effort to recoup anything -- anything -- from its investment, has dumped the movie onto Amazon with a stock horror image that has nothing to do with the film itself and does not even have Iwai's name on the cover.

What went wrong? For starters, I don't believe Iwai is fluent in English. Many fine films have been made where the director and cast did not speak the same language, but Vampire is not among them. Just as in the film Blueberry Nights -- in which the sometimes great Wong Kar Wai managed to completely squander the considerable talents of Jude Law and Natalie Portman -- here you have an A-list Asian director completely out of his element. The tone of this film is perennially off. Although the script has been rendered in idiomatic English, the rhythm of the characters interacting is too artificial. It's too theatrical (in the worst sense), and difficult to get sucked into this world.

The actors do their best with the material they were given.

Iwai is a master of imagery, and he does squeeze some drops of brilliance in some images that bear his usual creative stamp, but it's not enough to rescue the film.

Not as described Sept. 15 2013
By Bobby G. Bristoe - Published on
Format: DVD
The description of the movie on the cover is false to a point. This movie is not about the undead variety of Vampire. It is about Humans drinking human blood, and they do not need it to survive. They are not harmed by sun light, they can eat regular food, and they have all the regular weaknesses of humans. This movie is about murder, suicide, and rape. I was expecting some supernatural component to the movie when I got it and it had non. It is a very dark very sick movie. It is not a horror film. This movie will not stay in my collection.
