Got this from my christmas wishlist. I only remember seeing a few parts of it back when it first came out when my aunt rented it. Very nice take on the vampire genre. This is Guillermo Del Toro‘s very first feature film.

The blu ray also included Del Toro’s giallo-style student short film “Geometria”. Since i’m a fan of giallo/euro horror/suspense/thrillers, it’s a very fun send off of the genre. The video below is an earlier version of the short film, the final version on the Criterion disc has a different audio (Del Toro speaks all of the dialogue of all the characters in the final version) and interview with Del Toro.
