Park Chan-Wook shreds into the romantic notion of vampires as debonair bad boys with leech-like tendencies in this satiric, untamable film. With a priest who became thirsty for the syrupy goodness of human blood from a lab experiment gone wrong and a married young woman who lets him have his way with her, this is one dark tale but it is also self-deprecatingly funny as well. The lead actress is daring and fearless. Her acting here is equivalent to taking a bungee jump from a plane up in the clouds. Yes, it is that good. Park is fast becoming on par with Pedro Almodovar in giving one of a kind roles to women.
