Seriously, this is some quality filmmaking here, that happens to also be terrifying. Even my mom likes it.
Some reasons it is awesome:
- The shots and culture of Utqiaġvik/Barrow, Alaska.
- The vampires are unlike other vampires. They are almost alien and have their own language. “[A] fictional vampire language, with click consonants, was constructed with the help of a professor of linguistics and the nearby University of Auckland. [Director David] Slade explained, ‘We designed this really simple language that didn’t sound like any particular accent that you would be aware of.'”
- The graphic novels are also beautiful and horrifying.
