imdb: tt1531901 was a dvd release so not sure this even made it to a cinema along with the other films that seemed to go straight to shiny plastic land.

This film focuses on vampires and has an interesting take and location.  I liked it

imdb: tt2209764 sounded interesting although again it seemed not to get a cinema release.  Focusing on technology it is sort of the best forbin project* we are likely to get although the main star is a  bit wooden and there is a lot of faraday cages**.
