The first five minutes and five clips from Chris Nahon’s live-action adaptation of the popular horror anime “Blood: The Last Vampire” for ya this Wednesday. The first five minutes and a couple of the clips are pretty bloody, especially the alley fight where Saya takes on a gang of vampires in the rain. The rest are tame, and the “Something Wrong” clip is already shown in the first five minutes clip, so feel free to skip it. One thing is very noticeable, though: the film’s dialogue is pretty clunky, and I’m not just talking about Gianna Jun’s English, either. You get this feeling the whole movie is supposed to be in another language, but someone forced the filmmakers to go the English route, and it kind of shows.
A vampire named Saya, who is part of covert government agency that hunts and destroys demons in a post-WWII Japan, is inserted in a military school to discover which one of her classmates is a demon is disguise.
Starring Gianna Jun, Allison Miller, Liam Cunningham, JJ Feild, Koyuki, Yasuaki Kurata, Michael Byrne, Colin Salmon, Andrew Pleavin, and Larry Lamb. Directed by Chris Nahon.
The blood flies this Summer in the States, but opens May 29 in Japan.
