What's it about

Is it good movie?
Decent stuff- at least on paper. In a world where garbage like Twilight gets more press than Let the Right One In, this movie will fall between them as an unfortunately forgettable tale. I mean, think about it. The whole thing is a vampire love story about a lady who falls in love with a bloodsucker. Only he actually digs this girl so much, he is trying to become human again with the help of the woman's father who is a scientist.
But wait, there's more! On top of all this, there's an illuminati leader who loves the idea of immortality and he wants it all to himself. Mix in a vampire hunter and two inept cops and it sounds like you will have yourself a decent little movie. Well, if I were judging the plot alone, I might give this more points. With that being said, this movie is not well put together at all.
Let's start with the acting- man is it bad. The vampires are especially awful, and really aren't scary- goofy, if anything. The effects are terrible and the plot is full of holes, it comes off pretty stupid, and the timing is SO coincidental it's not even funny. = And the ending? Oh man, is that a head smacker. I'd like to spoil it for you, but that is one you'll have to see for yourself.

This movie is not the worst film I've ever seen. It simply suffers from a heavy-handed script and poor acting that really sink it. The movie has a ton of potential, but I can't see anyone besides young goth teenagers really enjoying it.
