Aro Recommended Vampire Hunter D


Japan 1985, 90 minutes
Dir. Toyoo Ashida
Rating: [R16]
Genres: Horror, Cult / Anime, Vampires

Topics: Gothic.


Aroview: In a barren, distant future where vampires rule what remains of life on earth, a beautiful young girl hires an imposing vampire hunter known as “D” after receiving some toothsome nooky from the fearsome Count Magnus Lee.

Emphasizing atmosphere over action with a quaint(!) synthesizer score, this memorable Anime feature of the 1980s has an unusual vampire story with charismatic characters - “D” is the strong, silent “spaghetti western” archetype while vampire lord Magnus Lee doesn't fall victim to old “Dracula” clichés.
