Blood: The Last Vampire
(Hong Kong/France/China, 2009, 88 minutes)
In 1970 Tokyo, an immortal vampire slayer penetrates a US Air Force base in search of the demons she has been hunting for centuries. Disjointed comic-book martial-arts/horror hybrid that adapts and extends a cult animated movie so clumsily as to render it totally incomprehensible.
