Nightfall

Before zombies took over as the “go to” monsters, it was vampires who ruled our wasteful lives. And while it probably won’t restore bloodbathers to their former glory, the upcoming Nightfall by Italian FX maestro/director Sergio Stivaletti looks to bring something new to the vampire mythology.

Good luck with that.

Stivaletti, as you may or may not be aware of because you’re checking Facebook all day long, is the guy who did the kick ass effects in Opera, Demons 1 & 2 and directed The Wax Mask, wherein a couple are horribly murdered in half by a masked man with a metal claw who rips their hearts out. Then that happens to more people. I’m thinking the mask was made of wax.

So Nightfall has this going for it: “Two friends uncover a vampire conspiracy to enslave the human race.” That’s all we know about the movie, which according to Facebook hasn’t even begun filming yet. Or maybe it has. I’ll have to keep checking Facebook, which is the real vampire. That thing sucks your life in half.
