Perfect Creature

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.

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...
