Thirst

Thirst is the story of a Korean priest who contracts a blood disease and becomes a vampire. Already struggling with temptation, his enhanced senses, accentuated carnal drives, and need for blood complicate his relationship with his faith. Thirst rambled quite a bit but told an interesting story and provided some humorous moments of the black variety.

Let the Right One In

Let the Right One In is hard to pin down. It's a story about a boy and a girl, it's a story about relationships, it's a story about bullying, it's a story about isolation, and it's a vampire story. Oskar is isolated, bullied, and harboring pent up aggression. When he meets his new neighbour Eli a friendship rapidly developments and we learn Eli is not a normal girl. The story is a study of two damaged people finding each other, with some disturbing overtones enabled by supernatural story points. Let the Right One In had my full attention as it unfolded and left me saying "wow" when it was done.
