We Are The Night DVD Review



Synopsis: Young. Sexy. Eternal.  Lena (Karoline Herfurth, Perfume: Story of a Murderer) is a troubled young woman from the wrong part of town. Antisocial and self destructive, Lena is caught in a dead end life until she meets Louise. Beautiful and glamorous, Louise is everything Lena is not and Lena cannot help but be flattered by her attention and the promise of a new life and family. A life of power and excitement. A life that will never, ever end. Fresh from the success of his internationally acclaimed The Wave, director Dennis Gansel delivers a darkly sexy spin on the vampire mythos, one where glamour and power come with a price not noticed until it is far too late.

Review: We Are The Night is a German made vampire flick that is released in the USA on DVD by the fine folks at IFC.   At first glance, it looks cheesy.  Like a silly vampire flick full of camp.  Then, the blood-soaked and stylish first scene hits you and you realize very quickly that this film is more than meets the eye.  What you get is a film that empowers the female side of vampirism for once.  It really focuses on the women with amazing action sequences and truly gorey and fantastic death scenes.  This one is heavy on plot, has fresh faces for the USA (being made in Germany) and is a ton of fun.  Great for the Halloween season!

Interest Range: Thriller, Horror, German
