This movie was not the worst movie i have seen about vampires, the fact that it was German made me very curious to see how good it was as i love German cinema. The one thing i love about German cinema is the fact that they don't rely on big budgets special effects and world famous actors, they rely on great story lines that grip you from start to end. This is the first one i have seen that used a lot of special effects and most probably had a pretty big budget, i guess i was a little disappointed as the story was predictable and you could see what was coming, it ended suddenly with out much of a big ending as most of these movies do. The acting was decent but the story was just not that strong. Nothing that hasn't already been done i guess. I would recommend renting the movie and not buying it as i think it is one to watch once and that would be about it.

Vampirism Is the New Feminism--A Stylish New Horror Film From Germany Oct. 28 2011
By K. Harris - Published on Amazon.com
NOTE: This German film suffers a bad English dub for its only presentation on Amazon Instant Video. Why not offer both versions, subtitled and dubbed? A four star film that works better in its original language, so I had to get the DVD.

I must admit that upon seeing the DVD cover art for the German horror flick "We Are The Night," my expectations weren't exceedingly high. Don't get me wrong--I mean who doesn't enjoy a cadre of hot female vampires? But I thought I was in store for cheesy late night titillation as opposed to a compelling tale of blood sucking mayhem. Any reservations I might have had, however, were quickly dispelled by a stylish and blood-spattered beginning. Dennis Gansel, fresh off the intriguing "The Wave," serves up an intoxicating brew of female empowerment, crime drama, and monster mischief. And while not perfect, fans of the genre should have much to appreciate in this well made production. Glossy with good effects, this presentation offers up a unique addition to vampiric lore serving up equal doses of female bonding, romance, macabre humor, and gritty violence. Far from just being a guilty pleasure, "We Are the Night" is a solid horror movie just waiting to be discovered by a broader audience.

The central character is a street tough, Lena, who gets by on her wits and a bit of petty theft. Something in the girl appeals to a beautiful and enigmatic stranger who indoctrinates Lena into a bizarre otherworldly life. It is an opportunity for Lena to live in a glamorous new style, but at what cost? Further complicating matters is a handsome young cop who senses that something unexplainable is happening with the girl. A strange, but satisfying, love triangle of sorts is formed. Lena and her gal pals explore the mysteries and the murders that accompany their lives as creatures of the night--but it is hard for her to reconcile her new wants with her very human feelings. After a brutal slaying, the police close in and everyone is at risk. As the film progresses, the stakes raise incredibly and the last half of the picture is infused with much action, copious amounts of blood, and a riveting final showdown.

Gansel's piece is visually appealing and very stylish. All of the action sequences are well orchestrated and the four central vampires are an alluring lot. Sometimes the police procedural seems a bit shortchanged, but it's a minor point. For example, a huge raid is set-up based on a Russian hood's assertion that would have inspired laughs and disbelief as opposed to mass police action. All in all, though, the movie works for sheer entertainment value. The film is available on the DVD either dubbed (painfully) or with its original subtitles. Gansel proved with "The Wave" (a critical sensation) that he was one to watch, here he proves to have an astute eye for commercial entertainment as well. An easy recommendation to genre fans, "We Are the Night" doesn't reinvent the vampire story--but it puts a decidedly new spin on it. Just enjoy! KGHarris, 9/11.

A Vampire film that needs watching. Sept. 18 2011
By rogue - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
This film is beautifully shot. The story is strong, and it is a different take on the vampire genre than I've seen in a long time. There are not many well done vampire movies, and this one takes the cake. First off, there are strong female leads. The female vampires do not come off as obnoxiously weak, or just slutty (like in Underworld minus Selene). It explores what one might initially think of in the fun of being immortal and doing whatever you could want....and then explores the downsides to such a fate.

There is a darkness to this film that explores the idea of, "What do I do now that I have everything that I could want...I get to stay this way forever." No children, no love life, and no friends...you outlive everyone you knew. Yes, the glamour is amazing...then we see reality set in.

A film with high re-watch value.
Karoline Herfurth is brilliant and a stand out actress. I went and watched a few other films she is in, and it was well worth the adventure.
Check it out.

Awesome Movie Aug. 8 2013
By Mike Amentler - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This movie is awesome! The English dub is a bit cheesy which is what originally watched this film in. So I bought the dvd and finally got to view it in its original German language with subtitles...fantastic! I waited quite a long time to even watch this film on Netflix because tho the description sounded great the picture/cover art looked like it was going to be awful. This movie is far from awful. Actresses, scenery, music ( I even would like to buy the soundtrack someday also)....just the whole feel of the movie is just what I like.

A foreign contemporary horror with stellar production value for a younger audience. Oh, and no vampire men. Girl power, I guess. Jan. 22 2012
By John's Horror Corner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Young vampires with alternative attitudes make this very contemporary fang flick stand out from an overdone genre--not that Let the Right One In (2008) or the remake Let Me In (2010) weren't unique, repeated delights. There is an outlandishly perky a la Anime fashionista, an experienced techno-chic lesbian, a deep, depressed intellectual, and a teen, tomboy, grungy human newbie.

The story gets interesting when the grungy newbie is transformed early in the movie and learns from her experienced peers' advice. During the slow, vein-blaringly painful transformation we learn that all the standard vampire rules seem to apply. 1) Hair-styling and make-up are tough without being able to use a mirror; 2) beastly, insatiable hunger goes unremedied by food, so start an LA fad diet on blood; 3) there is a desperate need for SPF 5000 in daylight; 4) you gain super crazy bitch strength and you regenerate; 5) you can defy gravity better than Michael Jackson and fight like those chicks in The Craft (1996); 6) vampires exercise a "don't ask, don't tell" policy; and 7) all vampires lead a swanky lifestyle. Religion goes unaddressed throughout the movie and I don't know about garlic. They never ate any Italians.

With her newfound vampiric elegance, our newbie is now a tomboy-turned-princess. But because this isn't some gun and sword-filled installment of Blade (1998-2004) or Underworld (2003-2012), we need a plot device. And in every non-action fang flick the problems all seem to stem from turning someone into a vampire who doesn't take it well. It happened in Interview with a Vampire (1994), Near Dark (1987), Fright Night (1985-2011)...pretty much all of them. And then, life goes to Hell for ALL vampires as if this was the first time that someone ever took poorly to being turned into a vampire and didn't devoutly follow the tenets of vampirism. Go figure. Not to rant and rave, but it's worth pointing out. However, I actually enjoyed the movie a lot.

Anyway, our fully-turned newbie starts out feeling enamored by the power and lifestyle. As she learns more she becomes hesitant and frightened by their method of sustenance and the consciouslessness that accompanies it. Ultimately she becomes resistant to the vampire way along with the romantic fixation her maker holds for her and how that conflicts with her feelings for a human she met before she was turned. Throw in a lot of clubbing and that's the plot in a nutshell.

During the turning/transformation, feeding scenes and the resistance phase at the end we get a lot of violence (including one particular scene for which I'll issue a "violence against women" warning). The action is well done, along with generally all aspects of production. However, the major flaw in this movie--at least the Netflix version I saw--was the poor English dubbing job. Before I got used to it, I would have almost preferred to "read" this movie. But once the story got started I thankfully forgot all about it.

Minus the inevitable outcome, this film depicts a fantasy of the young and beautiful, immortalized in a taboo shell, living with wealthy trappings like fancy cars and doing whatever they please. There's also some not-so-in-your-face feminism that I could appreciate. Evidently, guys who can't handle Vegas are like all guys to vampirism in general. So no male vampire egos run rampant in this movie.

Older moviegoers will likely appreciate this movie less. I certainly enjoyed it. But I know that over ten years ago (we'll just say from age 15-22) I would have loved it.
