A classic vampire story set in a post apocalyptic world where vampires are named for Greek gods, and witches rule.
The plot centers around a male vampire named Eros who falls in love with a human named Samuel. Eros wants to 'save' Samuel and make him a vampire, but Eros' evil vampire lover, Dionysus, has other ideas. Matters are complicated by Eros' sister/lover, Persephone, an ambiguous Bookkeeper and three witches, who know secrets of the universe and The Laws of Eternity. A deep tale of decadence, erotica and major stylized horror themes, shot around surreal and post apocalyptic sets on one hand and lavish, dark Gothic atmospheres on the other.
Wow, this film had great production value, but wasn't better than ones with little. The main characters are in a gay relationship, and there is other male-male sex. However the straight sex is far more graphic and takes much more time onscreen.
This is not
Watch this if you like pretty people doing a vampire story. The story itself is odd and takes on more than it can handle. I feel fairly neutral about it, and likely wouldn't watch it a second time.
One thing that piqued my interest was, with the inclusion of several people from The Lair and Dante's Cove is if this was a continuation of those stories. The presence of vampires and witches does match that, but no actual references seemed to be made.
