Eve (Melanie Denholme), a young housewife, lives a perfect life, boringly perfect you might even want to call it: She loves her husband, loves to have sex with him, loves her house, her garden, her life, her ... whatever, she just loves everything. Then one day she is bitten by a snake while meditating in the open. No big deal, right, the snake didn't bit her at any dangerous spot, and as a precaution, Eve sucks out the wound right away.

Still, after the snakebite, nothing is the same anymore: Eve feels worn out most of the day, and in the nights, she has nightmares of blood orgies, and what really worries her about these nightmares is, she seems to enjoy them. Gradually, the line between dream and reality is blurred more and more: Eve starts to go out in provocatively sexy outfits, to pick up strangers, to have sex with them, and to suck their blood. It seems Eve has become a vampire ...

And Eve's husband?

He seems to be absent through all of this, blissfully absent. But is he?

Basically, Lady of the Dark: Genesis of the Serpent Vampire is a one-woman-play, with Melanie Denholme giving an excellent performance of Mrs Goodie-Two-Shoes gradually turning into a homicidal vamp. But the film is also fascinating due to its puzzle-like narrative build-up - instead of telling his story in a strictly linear way (and taking much of the fun out of it), writer/director Philip Gardiner manages to shroud large chunks of it in mystery to be resolved only at the appropriate time, building up tension all the while. And the puzzle-like narrative is also mirrored in Gardiner's direction that doesn't shy away from cutting down, speeding up or slowing down the action, pretending simulatneity and superimposing images. Add to that a very ecclectic yet always on-target musical score, and you've got yourself one pretty great movie!
