Here’s a vampire film that sinks its teeth into you and doesn’t let go.
Stephen Rea, in his best performance since The Crying Game, plays an art historian who takes his estranged daughter (impressive rising star Eleanor Tomlinson) along to a creepy old castle in the eastern European town of Styria, a place they find to be full of sinister secrets.
A nightmare begins, vampires emerge, sensuality and death follow and it all makes for an intelligent and intoxicating cinematic experience.
