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.
