I have loved everything George A. Romero has ever done. And I thought I’d seen all his movies… but I was wrong!
Martin is his vampire movie, and also his favorite. It’s a strange tale of a young man who believes he’s a vampire. Maybe he is, maybe he’s not? But he *is* a killer, who likes injecting his female victims with drugs, taking off their clothes, and slitting their wrists to drink their blood. He moves to a small Pennsylvania town to live with an elderly relative, who’s convinced he’s Nosferatu.
This movie’s kind of artsy, jumping between Martin’s fantasy world and reality. But if you can stay with it, it’s a great horror movie.
So, if you enjoy the artistic stylings of George A. Romero, vampires, and super dysfunctional families, you might just like this flick.
