"Living among us" despite a painful blow from some critics, definitely not the worst found footage film, and certainly not the latest in the vampire theme. And considering the bloodsuckers in the last time either molded in action, or Comedy, then such a return Brian Metcalfe to old-school basics do not can not to please the fans.

Yes, a little bit of Arsenal were cleaned in this story, garlic and crosses no longer tease our naughty, but here sun Holy water work on the full. The story of the film has even adapted such a subtext — like vampires decided to make yourself and integrate modern society, and that one channel is sent to interview in the house of this family, well and there know as household conflict in the road — word the word, who does not understand the other, and that's two already wish to drop the blood of journalists.

Of course there are many ill-conceived plot situations — from why vampires rod shows when not sure yourself, or the meaning of the ritual is shown, but the characters in both sides of the story trying to be as serious and frankly stupid conversations in the tape are relatively few. Speaking of two is it was more an epithet for this film without canines, but think no more of from a conceptual point of view, but in order not to risk, so experimental film and quality of make-up and vizualki.

As a result — "Living among us" well I went to once a much smaller number of deaths and blood than expected and the fights of people against vampires, but with its twist. And let the vampires in this tape was more like about their classic qualities, the tape also had great potential to become nothing more than that it happened. Occasionally the film was sagging in their story solutions, and the atmosphere would be much darker based on the main ideas of the authors of the film.

If the vampires existed in reality, they had to make great efforts to improve their tarnished reputation. Well, you know, all these insinuations bloodsucking, sleep in coffins, insulting feelings of Christians and all that. "Living among us" takes this topic, moves us in a world which revealed the existence of vampires, and well... can squeeze anything interesting! Strictly speaking, witty ideas over on the entry representing the Declaration of the vampire press Secretary, and followed by something like "Real vampires", but with a serious subject. Undermining common sense and sparkling creativity abstract becomes first in the mockumentary film, then — to "found film", and ends with an obvious and predictable way. The question is not what the vampires of the "Living among us" different from other cinematic counterparts. How long will it take them to bared her fangs?

So, after the prologue, summarized in the news, we meet filmmakers. Mike — main researcher-journalist, Carrie — the girl responsible for the technical issues of shooting and made in relations with Mike, and, finally, the upstart operator benny. The trio decides to interview a clan of vampires and following their nocturnal lifestyle. The head of the clan plays late John Hurd, insisting that his family is monsters and generally friendly with people. The clan also consists of the wife of Andrew, the two sons of blood another representative of the local branch of the vampires.

Through a series of lengthy interviews, we studied the realities of the local ghouls. Strictly speaking, they are not much different from Canon, the except that kind of "Living" is still is reflected in mirrors hooked on the donor blood. Number in the heart? Yeah, he will kill a vampire, and man that is not kill? Since the local bloodsuckers, well, not violate the criminal code of the killings unfortunate, then the government simply allowed them to live without any control. Obviously, all so just be may pretty easy to predict to what actually is the story. Little help and the fact that characters-filmmakers — faceless and boring. They basically sit there, ask stupid questions, bicker and treat the camera like you see her in the first time in life.

Vampire the characters a little better, though because they turn inside out existing images, not particularly departing from the General direction of the vampire genre. The script offers comic Duo of self-centered vampires, one of which purposefully takes documentary with a night hunt. The second went nukuhou and makes people ambiguous hints. The remaining vampires lost in the total mass, show bad acting and strange environment.

Alas, hopefully the annotation is not can hide the fact that "Living among us" quickly slips in the familiar story of "escape from monsters." All fake policy of the paintings is revealed in the fetched the infamous scenes when the characters are forced to remove everything, to sort things out on camera and etc. To fortunately, "Living among us" not such unintentionally comical and bad, how could be. The project had all the opportunity to become as a sparkling Comedy, so and down into the depths of paranoia and threats and limited to the usual plot of the show the horrors of unacceptable quality.

In my undemanding taste of the film is shot well, the acting is tolerable.

But in my view the vampires — this is an analogue of maniacs, calculating master of pretense, a kind of Hannibal Lecter's a gifted hundreds of years experience, immortality, and superhuman abilities, but a complete lack of conscience, morality and tan.

And here here it is the spoils that in the list of genres this film is politically correct called "Comedy". Seriously, this is causing sadness and longing for the fate of modern cinema, and don't laugh! Scenario, exposing the characters, which the moment, for the shoulders of hundreds of years life experience, mentally retarded — does not hold water! As so besplanye vampires managed to remain undetected for so many years?! Camera in cell phones, video recorders, and private web Cams in the modern metropolis is simply not leave a chance in case of a crime go unnoticed! Police and society for so many years I noticed missing drive? If the task was to surround oneself under the camera, why not show quite adequate for family members? You can also to send them away or hide at the time! Why show a murder, if trying to get out label killer? In a word, that the vampire that an ordinary man with this level of intelligence and behavior from the local characters are not last week!

Filmmakers fall into the extremes are: either the Vampires get melancholic Emo with a hint of blue, or bloodthirsty but brainless monsters.

This review will be positive.

But that's only because it is better bloodthirsty mental retardation, with the manners of the aristocracy, rather than as in "twilight"...
