    The Ecstasy of Isabel Mann

    ★★★

    The Ecstasy Of Isabel Mann is an interesting and enjoyable vampire flick from Ireland.

    The performances are low-key and very naturalistic, very believable. I enjoyed the acting in Isabel Mann quite a bit.

    What I really liked was the vampires feeding. Very bloody and wet and intimate. The victims of these feedings were very much like prey, like a rabbit succumbing to a snake. Struggling at first but becoming more limp and more still as life drained away. I don't…

    Death Curse of Tartu

    ★★★

    So, say you're an archaeologist. You're on a burial island in the depths of the Florida Everglades. There's gators and snakes and other potentially deadly critters all around. The lead archaeologist has gone missing. There's a legend of a witch-doctor curse and the incessant beating of ghostly drums. What do you do?

    Put on your bikini and frug!

    Death Curse Of Tartu is a bit too long and a bit too deliberately paced. But it has just enough good stuff…
