Hollywood Film Theatre - 17 March 2008 - 7.30pm

A 400-year-old clockwork device containing a blood-sucking insect is found by an antique dealer who discovers that it confers immortality on the user. Unfortunately it is also in demand by a rich, dying industrialist. Tender and imaginative, this is a vampire tale with a difference.

AUDIENCE COMMENTS: Brilliant, in a B-Movie way; Gripping, but horribly macabre. A pity about the little girl being in a large part of it all; I nearly didn't come because I don't like horror films, but well filmed and surprising effects, but still horrible; A real stinker. Writing, directing and acting all feeble. It seemed interminable. Wasn't even frightening.
