Blood: The Last Vampire

Manga Entertainment

It’s sad when a horror film’s closing credits are more shocking and terrifying than the movie preceding them, but that’s the case with Blood: The Last Vampire. Blood is set a couple hours before the outbreak of the Vietnam War at an American military base in Japan. The last remaining "original" vampire, named Saya (who is about 50 times colder than the Terminator), has been hired by the U.S. government to kill a group of vampires hiding out at the base. A below-average pursuit of the vampires ensues that offers nothing new. Interesting plot twists are never explored, Saya comes off as way too cold to be likeable, and originality and innovation have been shelved. The most chilling moments are the closing credits set against live-action footage of the Vietnam War.
