    Another vampire flick that takes the mythology seriously since Let The Right One In and it works. It's similar to Twilight but more gruesome and has a sad ending. Being infected with an incurable disease and force to drink blood is an interesting concept. Park Chan-Wook is not only delivers a good story and well-developed characters, it's an ingenious alternate to New Moon.

    Chan-Wook Park.
    Need I say more?
    The guy is brilliant in suspense and toying with it. This is more of a date movie compared to his other films though. But even so, he put a great twist on the Vampire concept. This Twilight craze is getting out of hand, and Park shows you can still have romance in with such a back story, yet still make it horrifying. Not jump out of my seat kind of
    frightening, but calm, intimate, and spine-chilling. Awesome movie. Never regretted paying 5 bucks to rent it. Expand

    A terrific film. Loosely based on Emile Zola's novel "Therese Raquin."

    Stunning production quality and the story's extremity should arouse interest beyond the specialty Asian market.

    An overlong stygian comedy that badly needs a transfusion of genuine inspiration.
