Perfect Creature
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, and the toothy blood drinkers are the next step in human evolution. This delicate balance looks to be destroyed when an influenza epidemic sweeps the human population and one vampire, going by the handle: Edgar (Gregory), turns to preying on humans. The church sends out Silus (Scott) to catch the renegade Edgar.

There's so much intriguing thinking behind locally-made internationally-cast vampire flick Perfect Creature - which is matched by a bold sense of style on screen - it's hard not to enjoy the flawed result just for its grand ambitions...

From New Zealand director Glenn Standring, this is not what you might expect from a vampire flick, and for my tastes all the better for it...

Perfect Creature is a film that badly needs a transfusion of some of the goof and momentum of a Blade or Underworld, but instead winds up playing like the vaguely pretentious and sulky kid brother to those franchises...

Although it's nice to have a change of pace from the usual hyper-kinetic vampire stories that have dominated the last decade, Standring's characters really don't stand up to the extra scrutiny devoted to them. Scott's (Mission Impossible 2) Silas is expressionless and hence virtually characterless, like Nicolas Cage in City of Angels but with less mope, while Burrows' (Troy) cliched, troubled cop simply disappears, as if her altercation with a Dunedin tree kept her off the set for a considerable period of time...

Well this movie wrecked vampire movies for so well done. It was TWO HOURS OF SOME ANNOYING VAMPIRE TILTING HIS HEAD!!. For those who have the underworld movies did any of 'Perfect creature' ring any bells ? they could re-worded underworld evolution with the whole 'My brother is out of control' Act . Tisk tisk , never watching another vampire movie as...

I thought this flicks review was terrible and amateurish, not the film. The movie was cool and so different from most Kiwi films, celebrate originality is what I say. I note it's got several big nominations in the Qantas Film Awards too.

This is by no means a great film, but as far as Vampire flicks go - it's highly original. It's a bit slow, but I found that refreshing and the film all the more intruiging for it. The real star of the film is the production design - it has a gorgeous look, very Kiwi but very dingy and very odd.
