Film 74: Vampire Diary

I really like Vampire Diary, and I think there are four main reasons why:

  • It does something a bit different with the whole 'fake reality' genre.
  • It's a rare example of a film about a gay relationship aimed at a general audience.
  • It's splendidly ambiguous about whether or not Vicki is a vampire. When I interviewed the writer/co-director, the other co-director and the producer, one of them said she definitely is a vampire, one assured me she definitely isn't and the third sat solidly on the fence!
  • And finally, it's got the always-terrific Keith-Lee Castle from Urban Gothic and Young Dracula in it, making him arguably Britain's most prolific vampire actor of the 21st century.
