    If you're (a) a vampire fan, (b) a Goth, (c) a David Bowie fan, or (d) all three (they often go hand in hand), and you have not seen this movie, you should be ashamed of yourself and remedy this with immediate effect!

    As 'Diamond' Dallas Page says during this film, "Never underestimate the power you give someone by believing in them. Never underestimate the power you give yourself by believing in you".

    Heart-warming with white knuckle moments.
