Default We Are The Night (2010)

WE ARE THE NIGHT



“A sexy, flashy, super-stylish slick ball of gory vampire energy.”
Film4.com

A super-sensual and seriously stylish amalgamation of “Near Dark”, “The Lost Boys”, “True Blood” and “The Hunger”, this is one vampire action-thriller with plenty of bite.

Key talent:

Director Dennis Gansel (The Fourth State; The Wave) and stars Karoline Herfurth (The Reader; Perfume), Nina Hoss (The Anarchist’s Wife; Yella), Jennifer Ulrich (The Wave; Atomised), Anna Fischer (Beloved Berlin Wall; The Rebel) and Max Riemelt (The Fourth State; Urban Explorers; The Wave).

Synopsis:

When she unknowingly picks the pocket of a man one night on the streets of Berlin, small-time crook Lena attracts the unwanted attention of Inspector Tom Serner, a young police detective involved in ongoing investigations into Lena’s victim, a known Russian mobster. Although she manages to escape Tom’s clutches, Lena’s personal situation becomes even more complicated when she later visits an underground nightclub and meets Louise, the club’s owner and the leader of a trio of female vampires that also includes “young” party girl and DJ Nora and former 1920s silent film star Charlotte. Louise immediately falls in love with Lena and decides to transform her, introducing her to a glamorous existence of non-stop partying, fast cars, limitless night-time shopping sprees and eternal life. But it all comes at a price. As Lena struggles to come to terms with the endless killings and attempts to fend off Louise’s Sapphic advances, the bloodthirsty quartet’s murderous activities draw Tom and his police colleagues ever closer.

We like it because:

Where to begin? Four of the hottest female vampires you are ever likely to see, a breathtaking opening sequence onboard a jet, a ballsy heroine straight out of a Stieg Larsson novel, plenty of unexpectedly violent bloodletting, several nail-biting action set-pieces that would sit comfortably in a Bond or Bourne movie, and a truly original scene involving bikini-clad vamps “sunbathing” poolside while drinking cocktails.

Hot Quotes:

“Slick, sexy… compelling and cool.” – FEARnet.com.

“A fantastic looking film with gorgeous sequences and effects… well executed and stylish visuals

accompanied by heart pounding music… delivers high energy entertainment.” – Quiet Earth.

“I had so much fun watching this I almost don’t know where to begin… a seriously entertaining

motion picture.” – Moviefreak.com.

“Twilight has managed to rake in millions while destroying everything a real horror fan may have enjoyed about the vampire in the first place. We Are The Night manages to bring back some of the real blood that’s been missing with all those shiny tween vamps and does it with some seriously
gorgeous looking women.” – FilmReel.com.

“Brutally convincing violence and a stunningly shot opening sequence aboard a flying airplane…”– New York Times.

Special Features:
  • Making of (24 mins)
  • Deleted scenes (12 mins)
  • Two alternate endings (5 mins)



We Are The Night is out on DVD on 15th October. Pre-order yours here!

A great and highly enjoyable German mainstream horror movie, which didn't quite get the attention at the native box-office it so clearly deserved. The audience is so used to the "Twilight" brand of vampires...


Highly recommended

Nice work pointing out the airplane is "flying" cuz no one wants to see an opening sequence set aboard a stationary airplane, right . . . ?

A new film and no Blu-ray? Why so?

It does look rather good, though.

I was really pleasantly surprised. A very stylish vampire film that really deserves an audience.

There's so many great horror films out today, including this one!

Sexy lesbian vampires and plenty of gore to boot. Just how a vampire film should be! A complete lack of sparkles too!

We Are The Night [DVD]: Amazon.co.uk: Karoline Herfurth, Nina Hoss, Jennifer Ulrich, Anna Fischer, Max Riemelt, Dennis Gansel: Film & TV
