A really enjoyable low-budget vampire flick. Any thoughts about it?
And does anybody have any news about the upcoming Barrel release?

Darkness will be available later this year, probably just in time for Halloween. Actually, we have a question for everyone out there. Leif is busy finishing up the stills for the photo gallery and was wondering if anyone has a copy of this:
"There is an unauthorized German dvd of the flick sub-titled THE VAMPIRE CUT called THE RED EDITION -- this is an unauthrorized re-release of the German ASTRO VIDEO dvd which had the 107 rough-cut that was originally only supposed to come out on VHS in a limited edition run of 500 copies for die-hard fans. Anyway, I've refused to buy a copy of this version so I don't have one but was thinking of including it's bootlegged/photoshopped cover on the supps."
If you have this version or its artwork, please contact us. Remember, it's the RED edition, not the regular Astro release.

I'm a big fan of DARKNESS, having only seen it via the very old, very blurry VHS release here in the States (which Leif told me was done by literally videotaping the image off of a piece of cardboard!). All of its low-budget faults are easily forgiven by the sheer verve and energy of the filmmaking, and the incredibly ambitious scope of such a low-budget affair. I'm excitedly looking forward to the remastered DVD after all these years, and hope to see some more (bigger budgeted) stuff from Leif before too long!
