    Actually, I'd like to know how the DVD looks, if anyone has a copy.

    it's not that bad.
    picture is pretty decent.
    sound is VERY 'good' - as in very active, and dialnorm is NOT an issue. better sounding than Knight's Tale (which I found low and normal).
    good demo for shotgun effects and panning.
    more a road movie than vampires.
    fairly original, decent cast.

    Just returned it from renting it. It's fun enough and has a fairly nice 5.1 soundtrack with some directional effects that I really enjoyed.
    I won't be buying it, but it was certainly worth the effort to watch.

    I just rewatched this for my Hallowen-A-Thon, And I really liked this movie. I thought it was going to be pretty bad.
    The picture and 5.1 sound is really great!
    I haven't had a chance to watch the extras or listen to the commentary tho-.
    Give it a look today if you can!

    It started out decent but got really bad. The main vampire was one of the worst actors I have seen in a long time. It was a really bad version of the Lost Boys.
    Pick up Ginger Snaps instead.

    Actually, I found it to be a lesser version of Near Dark...but that's my opinion.

    I liked it, it was a pretty good vampire flick, but I'm partial to vampire movies. The picture is pretty good for a night movie and the sound isnt have bad either. I would recommend the film if you a vampire buff, other than that it would make good rental.

    I just watched it last night. The story itself is pretty good, I enjoyed it. REAL good sound, very active rears and sub. Like most movies, I don't sit around and over analize the picture. There was nothing that distracted me so I would have to say it looked good as well.
    The way it ended it left itself wide open for a sequel. I found myself hoping they would make one.
