Here’s the synopsis for Vampire:

Not all of those amongst us who crave blood are Vampires and not all Vampires  crave blood.

For those of you expecting anything remotely resembling Twilight, Nosferatu, or Bela Lugosi, VAMPIRE may not  be your  cup of red  elixir…Simply put, VAMPIRE gives new meaning to the word, vampire.

Simon seems like a fairly normal, average young man who’s devoted to his teaching job and ailing mother. Underneath the surface, however, things are not what they seem. Simon hunts through online chat rooms and message boards, searching for the perfect girl: beautiful, shy, and suicidal. Simon has a particular condition: he is compelled to drink blood.

Acclaimed Japanese director Iwai Shunji (New York, I Love You; All About Lily Chou-Chou) makes his first-English language feature and demonstrates that he is a master of cinematic storytelling in any language. Breathtaking, lyrical camera movement and unconventional framing capture beautifully macabre images, while the evocative music and sound design complete the sensory tour de force. The terrific ensemble cast stretches out of its comfort zone and syncs up perfectly with Shunji’s dark vision, which explores the essence of existence and what drives some to end it.
