Somehow this was not what I thought even though technically the plot does fit. See what I didn't see coming was the incredible cheapness that destroys any sort of creepy nature this film might have had. The corpses look like plaster of paris or possibly something cheaper with rubber masks so any violence or blood taken from them seems ridiculous! Anyhow the plot is about a necrophiliac that just happens to love draining blood from dead people using a little glass fork thingy (making him like a mosquito). Glaring errors keep this from being good in many ways, for example...don't they embalm people...wouldn't that make it so there wasn't any blood? Any how either I don't understand the concept of what happens to bodies after people die or this movie has some serious explaining to do that it never does. This reads a lot like a serious drama with cheap effects more than anything, and gore hounds that care not about the quality or reasoning of their gore may want to see this regardless. I know I found it to be a bit tedious and largely disappointing for such an exciting topic!
