The Vampire Chronicles

release year: 1996 (?)
genre: horror/drama
viewing setting: home laserdisc, 7/29/97
what I expected: some kind of vampire movie
what I got: a pretty good vampire movie

synopsis: Two vampires, one good and one evil, fight over a young woman as well as old scores.

impressions: This movie did a very good job of showing us how vampires would act, in order to quietly yet happily fit into society. Also, the "evil" vampire wasn't as much evil as powerful and efficient - we respected the hell out of him.
acting: Good acting all around, but a cast of (at least for now) unknowns. The "evil" vampire was particularly good.

final word: Definitely one to see, especially if you're a vampire fan.

rating: C+
