New vampire flick We Are The Night promises four of the hottest female vampires you are ever likely to see, a breathtaking opening sequence onboard a jet, a ballsy heroine straight out of a Stieg Larsson novel, plenty of unexpectedly violent bloodletting, several nail-biting action set-pieces that would sit comfortably in a Bond or Bourne movie, and a truly original scene involving bikini-clad vamps 'sunbathing' poolside while drinking cocktails! Quite a boast I'm sure you'll agree.
Director by Dennis Gansel the film stars Karoline Herfurth, Nina Hoss, Jennifer Ulrich, Anna Fischer and Max Riemelt
When she unknowingly picks the pocket of a man one night on the streets of Berlin, small-time crook Lena attracts the unwanted attention of Inspector Tom Serner, a young police detective involved in ongoing investigations into Lena’s victim, a known Russian mobster. Although she manages to escape Tom's clutches, Lena's personal situation becomes even more complicated when she later visits an underground nightclub and meets Louise, the club’s owner and the leader of a trio of female vampires that also includes "young" party girl and DJ Nora and former 1920s silent film star Charlotte. Louise immediately falls in love with Lena and decides to transform her, introducing her to a glamorous existence of non-stop partying, fast cars, limitless night-time shopping sprees and eternal life. But it all comes at a price. As Lena struggles to come to terms with the endless killings and attempts to fend off Louise's Sapphic advances, the bloodthirsty quartet's murderous activities draw Tom and his police colleagues ever closer.
We Are The Night comes to DVD on October 15th thanks to Momentum Pictures.
