Night Teeth (2021)

Image Source: IMDb

Director Name– Adam Randall

Genre– Vampire Thriller

Where to watch– Netflix

What makes this movie unique is the splattered blood, neon lights, and especially the goofy dialogue, which perfectly explains the characteristics of these night bloodsuckers.

‘Vampires’ are treated as one of the many clichés in this underwhelming horror-action-comedy that has little charisma of its own.

The movie is staged well in a nightclub sequence, making the audience feel the surging excitement.

The human character played by Jorge Lendeborg adds humor to the show. His soulful eyes, when in danger, are responsible for the cliché.

But, his world turns upside down when, unfortunately, he becomes the chauffeur for the two beautiful Vampire ladies, Blaire and Zoe, who are out on a killing spree that night. All you can see are fangs tearing into throats from one nightclub to another. 

Things get worst when the truce between the humans and the vampires starts to fall apart, leading to plans to kill a network of bosses.

The ready-to-drink, alive-and-breathing human stash is creepy and can fill you with a glum sensation. “Night Teeth” can burn you inside out with its staking drama and thrill.

Stardust (2007)

Director Name-Matthew Vaughn

Genre-Fantasy/Romance

Where to Watch-Netflix

The movie is very different from the other fictional movies we explore. “Stardust,” the word in itself, says a lot about the movie. The plot starts to build when a boy named Tristan, who lives in the kingdom of storm held by a wall, sees a falling shooting star and promises to retrieve it for her beloved Victoria. 

But, here lies the twist in the story because the shooting star falls on the other side of the wall where the fantasy world lies.

When Tristan crosses the border through a gap, he finds out that the star is, in fact, a girl with long blond hair named Yvonne.

She is exceptional, and eating her heart can provide you with eternal life, which everyone desires. After all, it’s a fantasy. 

The movie becomes more interesting with kings fighting for a throne and witches after her to eat her heart and cheat age. See how the two characters survive with the help of one another and how love empowers all.

Genre-Fantasy/Adventure

The movie is very captivating and never has a dull moment. The movie’s main protagonist is Clary (Lilly Collins), a teenager who lives peacefully until she turns 18 and starts to see weird unexplainable things.

The movie gets twisted by the appearance of another shadow hunter, Jace( Jamie Campbell Bower), along with his brother and sister. With his network’s help, Jace will help her find her mother.

The plot gets more convoluted when more oozy monsters get involved. Clary and Jace are falling in love with each other, while Clary’s best friend, Simon, is falling for her. The characters have done justice to the show, and the movie comes into a must-watch category.

The movie takes a sharp turn when Jake happens to fall in love with one of the avatars, Neytiri. Avatar’s use of technology looks hyper-realistic. 

The film is colorful, filled with fantastical creatures and geography, and feels out of the world. The alien creatures may not look photo-real, but they seem alive and expressive.

Witches are always to be taken as the evil characters in a fantasy, but this is not the story of Maleficent.

Excellent acting by Angelina Jolie, who is entirely into motherhood and is the most powerful fairy in moors with the sole purpose of protecting moors from the human kingdoms.

Due to betrayal by the king, Maleficent cursed his firstborn Aurora (Sleeping beauty). To break the curse, aurora has to live with Maleficent, and in time they develop a relationship of a mother & daughter.

That eventually softens her heart and leads to an internal transformation. The movie is followed by a fantastic sequel, “MALEFICENT: Mistress of Evil,” and things become more interesting and exciting.

The little talking animals, the beautiful forest, and the fantastic acting made the movie a grand success.
