Summary: A new blood born disease that turns people into vampires has ravaged the Earth. The government has waged war on them.
Comments: This movie is dumb. Almost nothing that happens in it makes any sense. It also looks about as close to actually watching a video game as you can possibly get (if the main character had used a cheat code to be invunerable and have unlimited ammo). Somehow, instaed ov going straight to video, it went to theaters (probably because ov Milla Jovovich's participation. I like her, but this movie blows). Avoid it.


Two bits ov news for Stephen King fans...
His short story 1408 about a paranormal phenomina debunker who spends a night in a haunted hotel room now has a director and a star. John Cusack is to play the debunker, and Mikael Hafstrom's set to direct.
In even more exciting news, Eli Roth (Hostel, Cabin Fever) is going to direct The Cell, which is my second fav Stephen King book ever...
