(br) wrote: I *love* the original B5 series and wanted to really defend this, but I can't! I *am* a religious man and "Over Here" is extremely hokey. "Over There" is a little better, but still too much of a moral play for me - reminded me too much of Number 1 of StarTrek TNG season 1. I do hope the future stories will be better. Well, at least Bruce and Tracy aged well (unlike Shatner and crew)...

Some jolts are required, but there is a ridiculous amount of unnecessary shaking. When it is called for, it often lasts for too long and moves too much. It's NYPD to the nth degree! Aside from some headache inducing action sequences, it's a solid flick with great directing. +Good use of slow mo+Reguera+Great acting+Beautiful direction for the most part+Twist ending-Parkinson's cam-Laughable shootout

(it) wrote: An extremely powerful movie...really makes you grateful to live in america. I reccomend it to anyone, but good luck finding it. Since i only tried to find it as a joke (since i call myself cyclo), im very pleased it was actually an excellent movie.

(ca) wrote: A cheesy sci-fi from the early 70's, not a classic, but fun to waste a few hours. As usual Heston over acts his way through the movie.
(us) wrote: Vampire Circus appears in the later Hammer years along with the Karnstein Trilogy, The Devil Rides Out, etc. Consequently, it features more nudity and gore than its 50s and 60s predecessors, and I must say that I love it. It is an original entry in Hammer's rather lengthy list of vampire films. When they execute a local vampire, the townspeople of the film unknowningly curse themselves and their progeny. A generation later, a circus appears in town, and slowly the denizens of the town begin to die or succumb to the charms of the vampire circus performers. Featuring a nude performer in tiger body paint and other strange acts, the film is a bizarre, surrealistic plunge into nightmarish eroticism and violence. An unforgettable entry in the Hammer pantheon that unfortunately is not available in the U.S. at present.

(de) wrote: A smart, different and honest take on the classic "stranded" genre. The central performances carry the slow build from one unfortunate moment into the next. What really stands out is the terrific ending that separates it from the others like it and gives the entire film a real purpose and power.
(de) wrote: First time I saw it, I really despised the ending. The more I watched it, the more it made sense to me. Was very intrigued by the character of Mort Rainey. This one grew on me. Great performances. Ending is clearly not for everybody. But it pulls me in, now. I very much related to Mort Rainey's artistic endeavours & sleeping patterns. I can't think of another movie that so deftly portrays an artist struggling with writer's block. Loved that.
