  • Children of the night - how sweet the music that they make...

    Yes, the similarity to F. Paul Wilson's novel "The Keep" (or to Michael Mann's film version) is unmistakeable, and yes, it's quite nicely done, with effective performances from veterans Dantine and Lederer (and it even has Martin Kosleck in a bit part) - but, but, but... Isn't there a moral question here? Should the very real evil of the Nazis be spoken of in the same breath as the supernatural fictions of Dracula? Isn't there a danger that, by linking the two, we trivialise the horrors of the Second World War? As someone said in a different context, it might have been fun, if only the Nazis had never existed.
