I had totally forgotten that they’d made another one of these…until it magically appeared on the DVR – thanks, husband. You are the best at fulfilling all my “vampires fucking werewolves” needs.

Even though the film started with a brief “Previously on…” summary of the first four films, I had a difficult time following the threads of the plot. I had totally forgot that Theo James was in the last one – and fuck if I remember what he did there. Vampire things, I guess? Vampire gun things? I cannot tell if he is supposed to be a love interest for Selene or a son type figure? Both?

My favorite thing about Blood Wars – besides Theo James – were the Viking Vampires. The Viking Vampires were fucking badass. Don’t get me wrong, I like the black, goth vampire thing…but sometimes, a white silky nightgown is more comfortable to eat people in.

So yeah, there’ll be at least one more of these movies coming out. I predict they’ll keep making them as long as Kate Beckinsale can squeeze into a leather catsuit.
