What are critics saying?


Village Voice by

This overhyped slashfest fails to rise above the extravagant pointlessness that plagues inferior anime.


L.A. Weekly by Chuck Wilson

This is one of the few treatments of the macabre in animation that is authentically unnerving, rather than merely gross or campy.


New Times (L.A.) by Luke Y. Thompson

It feels like a pilot episode for the most expensive made-for-cable cartoon ever produced, and if you expect quantity (or closure) for your $8 ticket, you may feel shorted. The quality, however, is unlikely to be disputed.


TV Guide Magazine by Maitland McDonagh

Despite its scant 48-minute running time (which many viewers will find frustrating), the film sets up a provocative equation between vampirism and American involvement in Asia.


The New York Times by Stephen Holden

Much more effective at evoking a paranoid mood than at telling a coherent story, and the jerky action sequences are among the film's weaker visual elements.


New York Post by V.A. Musetto

This poorly done, digitally animated work, directed by Hiroyuki Kitakubo, might be of interest to die-hard fans of anime. Others should pass it by.
