Thoughts on A Taste of Blood
Thoughts – A Taste of Blood is an Argentinian vampire horror that will see two sides come together in a tension filled story about who is or isn’t a vampire. The tension in the film is the highlight, as we get to see who is a vampire and who is a hunter, playing out in a similar vein of the zombie movie, not knowing who has been infected. The movie here will have a big question about it, which is the use of the natural Spanish with dubbed English, which takes a lot away from the film, the effects for the vampires are great. The performances are strong with Alfonsina Carrocio in the leading role shining through.
Final Thoughts – A Taste of Blood is an entertaining vampire movie.
