Where evil grows she preys
Now that She’s Here, There Will Be Blood…
A vampire named Saya, who is part of covert government agency that hunts and destroys demons in a post-WWII Japan, is inserted in a military school to discover which one of her classmates is a demon is disguise.
Director Chris Nahon fulfills the titular promise almost immediately, treating audiences to a dude getting cut in half lengthwise with a samurai sword and stuffed in the back of a subway car all before the opening credits.
Blood: The Last Vampire is a remake of an animated 2000 movie by the same name. They both feature a young-looking vampire named Saya (Gianna Jun), who hunts demons at an Air Force Base in Tokyo during the Vietnam War, getting sent undercover at a local high school. Violence breaks out, and Saya must protect Allison, a general’s daughter.
The film involves some maneuvering by the CIA, which must clean Saya’s messes while keeping the military out of the way.
Filming locations spanned the globe from China to Argentina
