I had received an advanced Blu - Ray copy of Ryan D. Blazic's modern vampire film "Monsters Among Men". And I really enjoyed the story starting out with a dude getting a cup of coffee and getting ready to purpose to his girlfriend in a nice woodsy setting just to wind up having a real bad day with a plot twist to boot.
It was produced by Ryan along with Thomas Berdinski and Johnathan David. With a music score by Thomas Berdinski of The Giant Rubber Monster Movie and The Italian Zombie Movie fame.
So I put it on and readied myself for some kind of vampire action and got plenty of it. I'm talking vampire attacks, undead familiars, thrill killer helpers, guns and blood. And of course the plot twist that really made it worth the watch. I mean most of the time Indie vampire films are a quick shoot that rely on boobs and fake blood with a simple plot of some kind of lead vampire doing a bunch of turning and getting destroyed at the end.
But Ryan went the extra mile and actually typed an awesome story line and a plot that you actually got into with a couple of twist that you won't see coming.
Yes I'm typing about the twist a lot, because like I said I was really impressed with Ryan caring enough to put that much work into the script of this movie.
And I love the nods made by Thomas Berdinski to a couple of Warren F. Disbrow's movies that I had worked on and appeared in with some of the cinematography he had done.
All around it's a cool watch and definitely a must have to your Indie Horror collection.
