Vampires, Phantoms and More: Vampire Hunter D (1985) Review

I always get a little nervous when beginning to review a movie and this one is no different. I really do hope that I can give it the recognition it deserves, particularly as a cult classic. I knew it should be a film that I would like, but I never expected to be so drawn into a story, so drawn into the film, as quickly as I have been.

Memorable For All The Wrong Reasons: Pupa Review

You know, thinking about it now, I can't believe I'm actually writing about this anime, but hey, it's the eve of Halloween and that's my justification for doing it. Thank you, Halloween. Pupa is one of those anime that is just...unforgettable. I don't mean that in a matter of praise either.

A lot of people haven't given Devils Line a particularly good review and, although I can understand why people may not like it, I have to disagree completely. Move out of the way Twilight, a better vampire love story is in town.

Titanic Meets Demons: Kuroshitsuji – Book of Atlantic Review

The Kuroshitsuji movie is based off the Luxury Liner arc of the manga. I was quite excited to finally watch the movie, but, unfortunately, it wasn't what I expected at all. I'm assuming a part of my dissatisfaction with the movie comes from the fact that the Book of Atlantic arc isn't exactly a favourite of mine in the manga, but I also found a couple of things about the movie that really annoyed me, regardless of my preferences from the manga.
