Vampires are real, and a secret council, whose formation is never explained, support a good-vampire on her mission to mercilessly slaughter bad-vampires in search for the worst-vampire who she was told killed her father.
For a while I was quite captivated by this movie. It was good in every respect, but it seemed to take a turn for the worse half way through, and just kept sliding. Overall it's good, but elements of it are too similar to other famous movies for me to really find it interesting, especially since those elements are rushed.
It's decent enough to recommend for a one-time watch.
- Properly titled Blood: The Last Vampire
- The opening titles stylize Blood as Bl∞d.
Based on the anime Blood: The Last Vampire (2000). Other media exist based on that anime:
See also Buffy the Vampire Slayer - (1997 show) for a similar slayer concept.
In the 16th century, the savage onin war reduced Japan to a massive feeding ground. Assuming human forms, demons settled in among mortals to prey on the bloodshed.
A fearless samurai named Kiyomasa rose from the heart of evil and became the most revered demon hunter, only to be brutally slain by the oldest, vilest of all demons: Onigen.
Centuries passed. Darkness reigns on. Then, a mysterious hunter emerged, joining forces with a shadow society known as the council, she sets out to face her ultimate foe... Onigen.
