    An Insult

    If you're a true fan of quality horror films, especially those featuring vampires, you'll avoid this pathetic excuse for a film. If, however, you want your intelligence insulted with poor writing, inferior acting, and an all around inept production, then you should definitely waste your time by watching this idiocy.

    Kerr Smith is a hottie!

    This movie had it's ups and downs. I liked it for one, because Kerr Smith starred in it. Fot two, alas, a horror movie with some explanation behind it. If you're a real big horror fan, then this movie is for you. The one thing that I thought they should have included in this movie was the thought of Kit licking the blood off of Sean's face and kissing him afterward. Then I would have given it 5 stars!
