review by
Mike Haberfelner

Massimo (Michael Klug) and Tien (Christine Nguyen) have been such a happy couple ... until he introduces her to his mum (Debra Lamb) and his stepdad (Joe Altieri), who for some reason don't take kindly to her - so much so that his stepdad tells him to break up with her. Now Massimo is a grown man and shoudln't take orders from someone who isn't even his real father, but then again stepdad is the local crime kingpin, and Massimo makes a good living being essentially his glorified runner. But before he can break up with Tien, he receives a visit from a mysterious woman, Sofia (Meghan Deanna Smith), who bites him in the neck and ... essentially makes him a vampire. This (naturally) blows Massimo's mind and also makes him mighty jumpy, and Sofia, who's apparently a shapeshifter, doesn't make things any easier. But on the other hand, she also helps Massimo feed, luring a prostitute (Helene Udy) into his lair, and killing her when he proves too much of a good guy to do it. But while being a vampire, Massimo also has to still function in "real" life, and to keep him in line his stepdad has even provided him with a handler (Mike Ferguson). But with his newfound powers, Massimo grows more and more cocky ...


On the surface, a mix of vampire and gangster movie, this is upon closer inspection much more of a character piece - but not in the boring way the term might suggest, but done in a very trippy manner that is at the same time introspective as it's just genuinely creepy, and that still follows the rules of suspense filmmaking. Then add to that some creative directorial choices that mix up monochrome with colour bits and crazy clips from vintage movies, and a very down-to-earth ensemble cast that keeps things grounded, and you have yourself a welcomely unusual film, and great genre entertainment for sure.
