High-Def Digest
7 November 2013
  • Conclusion: It's about time we're given another vampire film that's actually worthy of our attention. Unlike the genre's recent rip-offs, 'Byzantium' has a lot more than just sulking teenagers – but I fear that it will go the way of 'Let the Right One In' or 'Let Me In' by passing by mostly unnoticed.

AV Club
27 June 2013
  • Excerpt: Tempting though it might be to blame Twilight for America’s enduring fascination with brooding bloodsuckers, the throbbing vein of influence does not end with Stephenie Meyer. The real queen of the damned is Anne Rice, author of numerous fang-and-bodice bestsellers, whose crimson-ink fingerprints...

The Digital Fix
31 May 2013
  • Excerpt: In the 20 years since director Neil Jordan�s Interview with the Vampire first hit our screens, there has been a host of attempts at redefining the vampire genre. If the Twilight franchise has taught us anything, it�s that blood-drinking can be a good financial bet � and given the current...

Review: ‘Byzantium’

Variety
10 September 2012
  • Summary: Lacking the requisite scares, and blood, that entice gorehounds, this handsome, femme-driven Irish-Brit co-production is likely to fall between mainstream and arthouse categories among the several territories in which it has sold (excluding North America); better returns await in ancillary.

  • Summary: While Neil Jordan’s last film, 2009’s beguiling, wholly underrated sea-nymph tale Ondine , stopped short of marking a full-fledged return to the realm of fantastique where he’s notably contributed with Company of Wolves and Interview with the Vampire , Byzantium is such a return - and his most...

Empire Online
28 July 2013
  • Conclusion: A mixture of tough and wistful and reflective and brutal, this is the ideal vampire movie for Twi-hards who’ve had their hearts broken for the first time and want to move on to a less cosy vision of eternal romance with a side order of addiction.

  • Conclusion: Byzantium kertoo kahdesta vampyyristä, jotka elävät epäelämäänsä Britanniassa, kumpainenkin omalla tyylillään. Parissa sadassa vuodessa ehtii kuitenkin kertyä jos jonkinmoista historiaa, jonka kanssa joutuu pakostakin jossakin vaiheessa kamppailemaan.
