Storyline

Set during the 1960s in an alternate New Zealand known as Nuovo Zelandia, PERFECT CREATURE imagines a world where vampires and humans peacefully co-exist, with the bloodsuckers the next step in human evolution. This delicate balance looks to be destroyed when an influenza epidemic begins to sweep the human population and one vampire turns to preying on humans. The church sends out Silus to catch the renegade vampire, Edgar. Silus joins forces with a human police captain, and discovers that Edgar harbors dark secrets. Written by bondish

Unfortunately boring despite good setup
31 July 2007 | by EnvyYouProductionsSee all my reviews

First a confession: I have a weakness for vampire films. There are just a handful that really did it for me (NEAR DARK, BRAM STOKER'S Dracula, BLOOD & DOUGHNUTS, FROM DUSK TILL DAWN and a few more), but this genre still intrigues me against my better judgment. So I grabbed the opportunity to see PERFECT CREATURE that comes up with a new concept: vampires were created in genetic experiments in the Renaissance era. The new breed called themselves The Brotherhood, formed a church and put their powers into the services of mankind. They're no evil bloodsuckers - until now. Suddenly people get killed and drained. The Brotherhood sends investigator Silas (Dougray Scott) to collaborate with the local police (led by Saffron Burrows). Together they try to hunt down the killer vampire, while The Brotherhood tries to hush things up. The story takes place in a fictitious city where it always seems to rain (hello SE7EN), the aesthetics is 19th century meets the 1930s, mixed with modern technology (see: DARK CITY). All in all no bad yarn, but Dougray Scott proves again his yawn qualities, and the characters stay two-dimensional in an extend one wished it really was a comic book (where it would be told better). The ending aspires to be the beginning to sequels or a TV series, which seems doubtful. But after all there have been follow-ups to way dodgier genre films. For me it just means waiting for the next good vampire film. 5/10
