Perfect Creature


New Zealand / UK 2006, 100 minutes
Dir. Glenn Standring
Rating: [R]
Genres: Horror, Science Fiction / Vampires

Topics: Period 1960s, Religion, Gothic.


Aroview: Ambitious, well-appointed Gothica set in a retro-alternate Aotearoa, where humans and their highly-evolved vampire colleagues combine forces to capture a murderous rogue who threatens to upset their balance of co-existence.

The eclectic "steam-punk" production design is well realised and served by the location shoots in Dunedin and Oamaru, and visually it competes with many of its Hollywood ilk. Despite being an admirably high-concept twist on the vampire legend, however, its the overkill of expository dialogue and narrative conventionalism that strand it in the dreaded realm of the B-movie.
