I'm afraid...
1 February 2011 | by emma_hearsSee all my reviews

To say that the US version is better by the actors, scenery and script is unbelievable. First off, what made the UK version so good was the fact that these actors looked like every day people, not like these famous American actors we see in the US version. Our vampire didn't look like a twilight character! We could relate to the characters and that's important in a good story.

We don't need simplistic, slapstick humour, good looking actors or pretty special effects to make our version work. Ours was quirky and different.

Don't get me wrong, if I had never seen the British version I would enjoy this a lot more, it's simple and easy to watch.

But the UK version is a lot better.
