Whilst making a documentary, filmmaker Holly meets the highly enigmatic and beautiful Vicki who claims she is a real-life vampire. By turns fascinated by and attracted to her, Holly thinks that Vicki could be her soul mate and soon the two embark on a passionate affair. However Vicki's lust for blood is growing and when Holly discovers that Vicki is pregnant with a 'vampire' baby, she is drawn into a spiral of death, deceit and betrayal from which she will never emerge.
As an Independent film that like most was shot on a very low budget, Vampire Diary rises above itss lack of budget and even its lack of a bigger cast. The raw documentary-style filming helps in numerous ways, including letting the cast which is not the most talented perform their roles well. The story is another thing, I found the whole concept to be as original as it is clever,the "Blair Witch" style really works here, the film being told in first person makes a big difference. I have to admit the movie is slow in some spots but over-all the pacing is very good and the story flows well. Anna Walton is a wonderful talent and is a beautiful as ever here, if you get the chance check out "Hell Boy 2" as she has a role in that as well. There is a good mix of chills, passionate, and humorous scenes which starts from the opening credits and it doesn't end till the final frame. I have a good feeling this is going to gain a cult classic, any fan of the vampire genre will want to check out this film as it is a a breath of fresh air for the horror genre in general.
