An excellent eye and a bold black and white choice in a colorful TMO world makes this movie a film to download and add to any collection. Although the basic vampire story has been told over and over by Hollywood and by our fellow movie makers, alfric's approach is in fact his own and it remains to be seen what comes next. I admit the voiced lines for me fell short of solid acting and seemed a little mono-toned and flat at times but a slight accent included in the dialog added greatly to this American ear. It helped set mood and added a bit of texture to the classic vampire story. Not filling the set with props and trees gave this film an empty feeling which I enjoyed and think added to my over all opinion of priest and the monster alike. Excellent work alfric! I'm off the download the next part. If it bleeds from the same wound as this film I shall again be entertained and pleased.

A classic horror, truly horrifying. Alfric movies keep getting better and better, and this movie really is one of the best movies around. We were extremely impressed with the depth of this movie, in the short period of time. Voice-overs were brilliantly acted out, and the custom music really seperated this horror from the rest. An excellent horror atmosphere, acheived with great voice-overs, great directing, and lastly great custom music. This is a WCP MUST-SEE movie! May we congratulate you on your Five-star Performance!

An exceptional vintage horror classic that perfectly emulates the movie making styles of yesteryear! This film was more than exceptional -- it's a masterpiece.

From the first frame, the atmosphere of this film performs a slow burn on your brain -- and as the struggle between Draco and John grows more and more intense, the suspense and horror inherent in the film reaches a climax that really gets under your skin.

Everything about this film is exceptional. The editing was effective, unsettling, and the chilling performances were something special.

This deserves every accolade it recieves.

I am sooo glad that I finally made it down to this movie on my review thread.

I love the creepy effect that black and white give to this flick. The VOs were very well done. The editing was great and kept the movie flowing along masterfuly. The music was also excellent. I highly reccomend this film!!

I don't care if it says comedy or not. This can be the first Comedy that is a Yeagmaster Approved Horror.

I'm very impressed. This had the feel of a classic vampire movie. The editing was superb. The use of weather really added to the atmosophere. The music was exceptional. The voiceovers were very well-acted. Loved the stagecoach in this.

I would have preferred more opportunities for the action to speak for itself and a little less narration.

Dulcilicious!

Absolutely perfect. You wished to capture the feel of old time horror flicks, and you did..superbly.

The atmoshpere, music, voices, scenery. Oustanding to the last moment.

A suggestion if I may. At times the voices seemed just a bit rushed, not enough to take anything away from the movie, but just noticeable. Take time to deliver the lines as the proper timing and make a normal movie dynamic.

Also on the same note. If you plan to use Voice it may be worth your time to try doing all the sound effects custom. Screams sound so much more convincing coming from the same guy who whispers 5 seconds earlier.

Over all, fantastically shot, thought out and well acted movie. I have bookmarked you and you can be sure I will reccommend you to others!

Yes have to give praise to Meowan - the musical score was excellent. This was nice homage to the black and white classics. The Voice acting was perfect and the black and white enhanced the foggy scenes.
Plot/Story: 9/10 Good storyline, Good Plot. Vampire movies tend to limit themselves to only being able to go in two directions without some creativity.
Editing: 10/10. This is where I felt your movie shined. The movie looked great - the music was great - the acting was great.
Pacing: 9/10 Good overall flow to the movie.
Entertainment: 10/10 A very entertaining film. A nice vintage homage to the blood suckers.

A perfect example of a classic vampire story, made all the more atmospheric by the black and white sets and the excellent choice of music.
A good solid storyline, excellent editing, but what made this movie for me was your vo-work. I just love how you did the different voices, like your accent too, I've got a thing about it ;-)
A highly enjoyable movie.

BTW, thanx for the comments. I really appreciate it.

GOod work. A great little movie with distinctive characters and good motivation.

Story: 5/5 Lacked structure or context, but was really well driven by the characters.
Editing: 4/5 A little loose here and there, particularly during the chase, but otherwise full of atmosphere and tempo.
Production: 5/5 Nice to see a black and white movie on here, especially one that looks so dramatic.
Dialogue: 4/5 Slightly cod from the vampire, but the priest's dialogue was full of character and style.

Masterfully composed and produced, this vampire tale is a must see! The only shortcoming I see is the pacing of the dialogue, but it is a small shortcoming and not worthy of dropping a star. Very well done!

An entertainment value review...

5 stars, no doubt, if for nothing else than successfully capturing the feel and appeal of the classic Hammer horror films. A fine setup to what I am already expecting to be an excellent second installment.

My sole critique worth mentioning thus far, then, is that I am hoping that voice work will improve somewhat, as the male lead performance comes across as more of a recitation than a natural delivery in almost every case. I'd like a little more feeling... a little more physical voice than internal one... Am I making sense?

Quibbles aside, all in all, this remains a fine horror film in this medium and a grand homage to the classics.

I am eagerly off to part two!

I found this movie really funny. It really captures the feeling of an old horror movie. The main character is one of these obssesed heroes, like Solomon Kane.
The sets were well used. It's the old story good vs. evil, Van Helsing vs. Dracula, Blood vs. Draco...
A good movie which deserves a 5 star.
I look forward to see more from you!

02 REVIEW

I said i didn't hv enough time to chk this out but i had actually been looking forward to seeing this 4 sum time and kept forgetting to chk it out. So i sat down, actually i admit i didn't hv a clue of what to expect from this movie at all. I knew it was a vampire flick but actually i knew very little else. To be honest the idea kinda reminded me of an old fashioned Van Helsing, but a much better movie then Van Helsing.

I liked the usage of black and white, it gave the whole movie an eery feel to it that really worked for it. Also ur VO's were suprisingly good, the Draco the Vampire voice wasn't especially sinister but it had an eery feel to it that worked extremely well. I liked the plot, but when i do think about it very little did appear to happen due to its etremely short length. However, the movie did suffer from a few small flaws that did take away some enjoyment bt not that much.

For startes i just found some of the dialogue a bit, well, weak and wishy washy. It was a bit predictable and something u come to expect from a vampire movie. Also i felt the characters actually lacked any true depth. They need a bit more to make them that much more belieavable. But i am sure these problems can be countered for the sequle, which incidentally i am eagerly anticipating.

Overall a five star movie just with a few flaws. But it still wins an 02PARSIM Aproved award. :)

Great.
I like that this was done in black and white.It gives the film more atmosphere.
I'm not sure if it was your intention,but I felt it almost had the feel of an old b-movie.It may have been because of some of the narration,which only in some places,needed just a bit more emotion.
The story itself was good and it never let up.I've heard this music before in another movie,but you used it very well here in conjunction with scene changes,and it really is Excellent,and it does add to the atmosphere.Meowan has real talent in making fantastic music judging by this.
Overall I thought this was great.Nicely done:-)

This is DaVoS888's review for the WCP-DaVoS Review Thread

Well, what do we have here? My guess is a damn good movie! You did very well here in the basic storytelling of the movie. There wasn't a particularly thck plot though, apart from a guy going to rid earth of a vampire. The idea wasn't the really special thing in this movie. What was special was everything else.

There were some really nice voice overs in this movie, and each characters voice worked, and was easily distiguishable from all the other character's voices. The music was very well chosen and well used. It gave the movie a lot of atmosphere. The charaters were all well planned, built up and all played a very good and important role in the development of the story.

But argueably, the best feature of this movie was the amount of modding work that went into it. The custom sets were very good, as black and white really worked for this movie. But too see that you made the effort to make black and white clothes and even black and white skin mods for all the characters really made me appreciate how much effort went into this.

So, all in all, a very good movie indeed, with a lot of features and positive assets. Next time though, see if you can develop the story a lot more than you did here - it really does help. But anyway, I cannot really fault anything else. A very good movie. Well done.

TOTAL SCORE -- 4.5
5 stars

Great atmosphere, wonderful music. Editing was pretty good, but there were some moments where I believe it could've been improved. The VO's were decent, a little lacking. Plot was intelligent, but I think this could've had a little more length. Overall, This just misses the 5 star mark. But don't think I thought it was bad -- it was still a very entertaining movie.

Originality:8/10 Brings memories of the old classics

Plot/Story:7/10 Ifeel the beginning was like sitting down in the middle,Iwant to see how he got on the trail of Draco.It felt like the big finish,but obviously it's a beginning.

Dialogue:7/10 Writing was pretty good,but the acting could use more emotion.

Editing:7/10 I think this film started in the middle and progressed to fast to create any true horror feel.The editing was jumpy and it hurried the story along.Give us some more of the history of both characters.

Wow:7/10 A good old classic Dracula movie feel with the B&W,but the fast pace of the plot (to me)hurt the true atmosphere.No tension was built,no developement of the characters.

The music was a maserpiece. Built up tension fro the start. The VO's were a tribute to the film. And the black and white setting made it even more chilling. This was true horror. And whilst it my not scare, it is a sure thrill to watch. The fog was also unerving and slotted into the film perfectly.

A wonderful, chilling story that the likes of which have never been told, let alone with this much atmosphere (congrats to MEOWAN). Editing was exceptional, and the voice-overs certainly matched the characters and gave feeling to the parts. Not rushed at all, and an unexpected trailer as well.

Overall - 25/25 ***** stars (AAA)

Spine-tingling plot, exceptional voice-overs, and an exhilarating atmosphere make this movie the reason it has recieved several coveted awards, like the Dulcilicious approval.

A classic horror depicting the likes of vampires to perfection. I liked this film. Possibly one of the best vampire performances i've seen. First of all, the black and white transition was an awesome effect. Gave the production that vintage feel. The horror elements was very effective too. The settings and fog really gave its atmosphere something to value, and the concept of a vampire tormenting the mind of the protagonist was chilling. Music added towards the tension, and the voice-overs was well depicted in the character roles.

But in general, something distinctive you have produced here. It shows the condiments of a well persuasive film, and the concept was very singular. Not the average vampire films i see most the time. The way you have maniuplated the effects in engaging the audiences perspective was done quite well. It had me engaged thats for sure. And your skills are proven to be quite evident to shine in this genre. Some great work instigated to make this a very well scripted performance.

OKINAWA OFFICIAL REVIEW: I'm so glad that the secret vault revealed this wonderful film. It's definately well made the music choice was well chosen.

There were a few minor things that kept it from being a five star. The story was a little predictable and didn't seem too original, but I like how you got the concept from past classics. I think you coul've had more in it, because you're such an amazing writer. The dialogue was well written as well.

The voiceovers felt a little monotone and I thought the actors could've had more emotion to it, but overall, this was a really good gem.

This movie was beautifully executed with the great use of Black & White filming.

Well done and I look forward to the main feature!

Impressive opening, very dramatic and atmospheric. Edit became a little looser toward the end and slowed the pace down. Great VO but I agree with another reveiwer that they were a little rushed, needed more time for the great script to be allowed to resonate and let the audience feel the power of the dialogue.
Carriage chase was pretty cool, although the Moon passing by so often spoilt the effect a bit.
Good movie, loved the lead char.

originality; 7/10 the film overall was original, but you used Draco [like Dracula and many vampire names from the Draconian era] and that hurt, as well it has nothing that makes it exceptionally better than another vampire flick
diolouge 6/10 the VO's weren't good...at all. the film was hurt by them, but the film survived...the vo's weren't emotional, to rushed,
sound; 10/10 you use music well here, unlike most TMO'ers you used the music to create an enviorment and did it well
editing;9/10 solid editing, i liked the opening casket scene, its really nicely done, with solid flow overall
PawPrint Factor; 10/10 overall it was nifty

42/50 [but a nifty 10/10 PawPrint] gets you a 5 star rating because i can... the movie was great, it can defintly get better vo and a bit more 'original' but the music carried it, and it was horror all the way, but nothing that blew me away on every level for pawprint status, it was a solid film, with most elements of horror, it is a must see

Awesome, the b&w gives it an eerie, gritty feel. A great vampire movie, I thoroughly enjoyed it.
(Now for some blatant touting; - my 'Centrefold', has been out for a couple of hours now, without a single review, gonna answer my plea? :o)

The B&W looks so cool, for this alone you deserve 2 stars. But your movie was also very well written and had great VOs. Very well done!

Two caskets; no waiting! The perfect amalgamation of acting, editing and cinematography combine to create this, just about the most chilling vampire film awaiting the unsespecting viewer . . . a definite stake in the heart above the rest!

This has the elements of a classic vampire movie, the only thing i noticed that went wrong was that when the guy was on the horse and carrage, the moon kept going by, again and again. but that is the makers fult, not yours. also, you might want to try slowing down your voice when recording, somtimes was a little to fast. But I loved it. well done.

I'm very impressed. This had the feel of a classic vampire movie. The editing was superb. The use of weather really added to the atmosophere. The music was exceptional. The voiceovers were very well-acted. Loved the stagecoach in this.

I would have preferred more opportunities for the action to speak for itself and a little less narration.

Dulcilicious!

Excellent revision on classic horror movies! All the right scenes and the right mood, and black-and-white is a very nice touch. While the story could be more compelling - for example through the addition of lines in the monologue to reveal more of the past and how it lead to where he is, allowing the viewers to identify with him more, everything else seems to be right there in place. Great job!

To be honest, I don't think I've seen any TMO vampire movies...Untill now. The black and white was really a nice touch, and the VOs were great. Enjoyable story, and very good music. I really liked the beginning of the film, and the end was very nice. You managed to make a very good mood for the film. I can't wait to see more.

Great job! Started Off very well. I like how you used the old look in your film. Really added that whole ambiance of the olden days. I must say the story and use of sets were perfect. Used them to their full potential. I can't give this any less then a 5*. Amazing!

Absolutely perfect. You wished to capture the feel of old time horror flicks, and you did..superbly.

The atmoshpere, music, voices, scenery. Oustanding to the last moment.

A suggestion if I may. At times the voices seemed just a bit rushed, not enough to take anything away from the movie, but just noticeable. Take time to deliver the lines as the proper timing and make a normal movie dynamic.

Also on the same note. If you plan to use Voice it may be worth your time to try doing all the sound effects custom. Screams sound so much more convincing coming from the same guy who whispers 5 seconds earlier.

Over all, fantastically shot, thought out and well acted movie. I have bookmarked you and you can be sure I will reccommend you to others!

Just great! A great hommage to all black and white horror classics, and Dracula was always a favourite of mine! Nice editing, music fits perfect and great vo. Everything looks so new in black and white!

Yes have to give praise to Meowan - the musical score was excellent. This was nice homage to the black and white classics. The Voice acting was perfect and the black and white enhanced the foggy scenes.
Plot/Story: 9/10 Good storyline, Good Plot. Vampire movies tend to limit themselves to only being able to go in two directions without some creativity.
Editing: 10/10. This is where I felt your movie shined. The movie looked great - the music was great - the acting was great.
Pacing: 9/10 Good overall flow to the movie.
Entertainment: 10/10 A very entertaining film. A nice vintage homage to the blood suckers.

I loved the barren world you created and the music definety helped with the tension and atomosphere. great use of the camera. the problem i had with it is that it started very quickly but seamed to loose pace towards towards the end just when the pace should have been building up. but i loved the way you intertwined religion with it though. It wasn't that orginal but I guess is wasn't supposed to be.
very good movie I'd love to see a second longer one that builds on it.
