Horror movies are by far my favorite, so I've decided to make a list with all of them I remember…
An immortal battle for supremacy.
Vampires and werewolves have waged a nocturnal war against each other for centuries. But all bets are off when a female vampire warrior named Selene, who's famous for her strength and werewolf-hunting prowess, becomes smitten with a peace-loving male werewolf, Michael, who wants to end the war.
A Gothic horror film that doubles up as an action film was definitely something new back in 2003. We had "Blade" but the Gothic scenery and feel that Len Wiseman brought to life was a whole new take on a modern day vampires versus werewolves story-line.
This film does look stylish. It has plenty of thrills, a great back-story and a leather clad anti-heroine as its focal point. Kate Beckinsale has rarely looked better and although some of the dialogue is a touch on the cringeworthy side, it makes up for it with plenty of action and some nice turns from the likes of Bill Nighy and Michael Sheen. As hokum goes it is pretty entertaining and with good special…
The Matrix: Vampire and Werewolf Edition
I am a sucker for the, but you have to love a good old fashioned Werewolf/Vampire tearup.
In this one, the two tribes try to cultivate a hybrid, but the elders aren't happy bunnies at all.
Half Vampire, half Lycan, but stronger than both.
Kate Beckinsale in paint and leather, Bill Nighy, Vampires and Lycans fighting to the death...have i anything more to say...thats how its done right Stephanie Meyer!
After finally watching Underworld I can say that my thirteen year old self was right to scoff at the trailers of this meandering and bombastic mess of a film (though it probably helped I was a kid raised on 80s and 90s horror and keen to the idea that style over substance rarely worked.) This film tries so hard to build it's own universe and deep folklore and mythology, but the truth of it is, it's execution is so tedious and cliched you couldn't care less about the supposedly epic global struggle between werewolves and vampires. It's all done in such Matrix-aping, glossy and vacuous ways that any idea of "fun" that a film with a concept like this should…
Wooden performance by Kate Beckinsale does not make Corbin aroused.
And Corbin wants to be aroused.
Anyways, Underworld seems to go on for quite a while, with oh so little substance. A better route for this movie would've been to make it into a TV show, with it being able to flesh out character and feelings within, and be able to contain the amount of twists that it has, and make them seem like there aren't many in the film. All the same, the cinematography is decent, I guess, and there are some slick action scenes, but in the end, it seems too muddled in order for it to be successful.
p okay but the sequel was like everything this one tried to be but better
I am Kate Beckinsale. Watch me brood. I am brooding now!
I really, really enjoyed this one. But only because of the awesome werewolves - the storyline in itself was kind of boring and meh.
And someone tell me why the vampire/werewolf hybrid looks like a smurf? Ridiculous.
In every decade, you can find vampire films. Famous horror director Bela Lugosi was one of first director to make these films with his 1931 Dracula and countless inspirations and type of sequels followed it. In the 70's, Blacula fells into what the 70's were and that trend contented with Lost Boys in the 80's and Buffy the Vampire Slayer in the 90's which later turned into a popular tv show. Even though it was met with fair amount of criticism, the Twilight series was a recent film adaptation of a vampire story from 2008 to 2014.
In the world of this film, Lycans are a type of werewolf and have been at war for years with a group of…
Eurgh. Why did I promise myself I'd watch the entire series. I guess there's no place to go but up from here, at least.
Think it's the third time I have watched it this year and it is still as appealing the first time I ever watched it.
Kate Beckinsale definitely helps though.
Wolfeo and Vampiet.
Lycans creep me out man.
