The subspecies series is extremely redundant. It is hard to believe how small an arc has been covered since Part 1. Radu is still in his castle enslaving Michelle. He still lives with his decaying mother who seems bound to a single room, for some reason. Meanwhile, what appears like the same police investigation we had in Part 2 starts all over in town.
The evil characters are still interpreted with cookie-cutter lines and expressions that can be equally blamed on the writing, the directing and the performers. It is as if the actors were simply told to "act evil", or to "act like monsters". The same impressive, gorgeous set and set design are used, but they are starting to lose their mesmerizing effect on the eye as time passes.
This film, like the previous ones, suffers from terrible pacing. We constantly take two steps forward and one step back. The romance between Radu and Michelle creates interminable, darkly poetic dialogue that is not as clever as writer and director Ted Nicolaou wishes it was. This story could’ve basically been told in 30 minutes or less. Not much happens, when all is said and done.
