Neil Jordan has dabbled in the world of vampires before, in 1994's blockbuster Interview with the Vampire. Personally, I didn't think much of it, but Byzantium, virtually unseen on these shores, is lovely. Oh, it's gory, too, but lovely in that visually sumptuous style for which Jordan is known, making IFC Films' Blu-ray a feast for the eyes.
I get why last year's found-footage anthology, V/H/S, proved so divisive to horror audiences. I don't agree with it, but hey, it makes my job reviewing the sequel so much easier: If you liked V/H/S, just press play on V/H/S/2; if you didn't, don't even start.
