    There were things I really liked about this film, but there were a few things that spoiled it for me. First of all, I appreciate Coppola fleshing out the story and making it so visually appetizing. The Todd Browning film, I love, but what Coppola does is make it his own, it's very sexualized, but with vampires, like in the show "True Blood", vampires being sexualized makes sense, and brings a vibrant energy.
