First-time feature director Gary Shore, who has also logged a lot of hours as a commercials director, certainly knows how to frame an attractive shot.

What was the story of this man who was so desperate to protect all that he loved so dearly that he became responsible for this great sin? A great nation can make a deal and walk into the dark side to defeat other monsters but maybe its too great a price to pay even to defend all that you love and the future of your people. The threatening evils of the world has changed the good to become greater monsters themselves who can only consume everything. In the end, was it worth it losing your conscience?
Whether you bite this film or not, the story is a classic. If there is a Part 2, I would love to see him fight with his nemesis Van Helsing.
