“Vampire Journals” is a spiritual successor to Subspecies. You get the same aesthetic trappings and certain character traits shared between series. Still, the story is straightforward. Emo vampire is mad that other vampire turned his girl into the undead and forced him to kill her. Now, he packs a sword and stalks the night to avenge what has happened. If that sounds cool, get ready for 82 minutes of moping.
The Blu-Ray comes with a commentary, featurette and original trailers for Subspecies as the special features. The A/V Quality is stunning for an indie flick. The 1080p transfer is dark, but plays with the chosen visual design. The Dolby 5.1 track is flush across all channels. In the end, I’d recommend a purchase to the curious.
