Vampire tale with a lack of bite.
THERE was a time when vampires were hideous creatures of the night.
Then along came the Twilight series and the undead morphed into benign bloodsuckers who get their rhesus negative from animals or the blood bank.
Joining their ranks are the centuries-old Tom Hiddleston and Tilda Swinton, teasingly named Adam and Eve.
He is a gloomy musician hiding out in a house in the US while his wife resides in Morocco, hanging out with vampiric 16th-century playwright Christopher Marlowe (John Hurt).
Given that the film is from the usually dull Jim Jarmusch (see The Limits Of Control), this is a pretty accessible movie that is more a drama than a horror.
DRAMA Low on horror
