• The most underrated vampire flick on Netflix?

    28 October 2020

    I'm continuing my spooky run-in to Halloween with this link to an article on Inverse entitled: You need to watch the most underrated vampire movie on Netflix ASAP




    While happy to highlight some of the Cirque Du Freak movie's flaws, the reviewer decides that ultimately "it's a riotous ride and the perfect Halloween watch." And who am I to disagree with a summary like that?!? :-)


    I get the occasional comment, whenever I link to an article about the Cirque Du Freak movie, criticising me for "publicising" or "promoting" the film. As I've said many times over the years, I wasn't involved in the adaptation, and I regret that it was so unfaithful to my books, but I did enjoy it on its own terms. I'm not "promoting" the film when I link to these types of articles -- it's worth bearing in mind that I link to the negative articles too, but surprisingly there aren't very many of those. I just like to share any opinion pieces that touch -- even tangentially -- on my books, as I know lots of you guys are as interested in them as I am.


    And, hey, while I know it might look as if I'm trying to build a case with recent positive posts about the movie to suggest that it's a lot better than its box office failure hints at, that's not ME pushing that view -- it's just the opinion of reviewers like this one. I can't help it if people like the movie, can I?!? :-)



    I'm going to be recording a short Halloween VIDEO to release on the 31st. I'm going to answer a variety of questions submitted by fans, and maybe do a short reading or two. If YOU want to ask me a question, you can do so in the comments box in reply to this post or use the Contact Form on www.darrenshan.com I'll gather together a selection of my favourite questions and answer them as best I can in the video.
