Have you ever watched a movie that was so amazing that you couldn’t go to sleep that night? You stay up staring at the ceiling thinking about the twist and turns, and how this is probably the best film you have seen all year, even in the last two years. Yeah, Nocturna is not that movie. It’s an aborted fetus of a vampire flick that should have never seen the light of day (no pun intended). I’ll go on the record saying, that this is the worst movie I have seen all year, hell in the last two years. I don’t even know where to begin with this travesty? Let’s start with the acting (if I can even call it that). Every actor and actress gave absolute zero f*&ks into this movie, no exaggeration. The term mailing it in was invented for these types of movie. Mike Doyle was terrible. He’s not a good actor to begin with, but he’s at least serviceable. The guy who played his partner Danny Agha was honestly unbearable! He always looked out of place. He kept staring into the camera, and I’m confident he was reading his lines. The main antagonist was the most non-intimidating person I have ever seen in my life. He was more like anti-intimidating. Five foot Gothic vampires are not scary. I don’t care what anyone says.
Everyone else were below serviceable, but above crap – if that make any sense. The cinematography was okay. I know they had a budget of an after school program, so I can’t rip on them that hard. Most shots were bad, but they had a few good ones. I’m not even gonna lie. Plus, the way that Buz Alexander wrote the film didn’t require much anyways. So, I’ll give them a pass on that one. The plot was weaker than their acting, if you could believe it. Every twist and turn would have you thinking “that doesn’t make sense, you could just do this.”
