  1. 70
    This is one of the few treatments of the macabre in animation that is authentically unnerving, rather than merely gross or campy.
  2. It feels like a pilot episode for the most expensive made-for-cable cartoon ever produced, and if you expect quantity (or closure) for your $8 ticket, you may feel shorted. The quality, however, is unlikely to be disputed.
  3. 70
    Despite its scant 48-minute running time (which many viewers will find frustrating), the film sets up a provocative equation between vampirism and American involvement in Asia.
  4. Much more effective at evoking a paranoid mood than at telling a coherent story, and the jerky action sequences are among the film's weaker visual elements.
  5. 25
    This poorly done, digitally animated work, directed by Hiroyuki Kitakubo, might be of interest to die-hard fans of anime. Others should pass it by.
  6. Reviewed by: Mark Holcomb
    This overhyped slashfest fails to rise above the extravagant pointlessness that plagues inferior anime.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. The worst movie I've ever seen. This movie is REALLY bad. For one thing, it is only 48 minutes long. For another thing. The dub/Japanese sub crossover is horrendous. Sure, the animation is quite good, but what good is it if the main character doesn't even tell why she can't kill humans? They explain NOTHING about the story, which makes an already terrible movie even worse. Expand
