Like most anime fans my age, Vampire Hunter D was a staple to my introduction of the fantastic and odd world of Japanese Animation. The first film was dark, bloody, character driven, and overall wonderful. The success of the 1985 classic demanded a sequel; one based off of the third book of the Vampire Hunter D series by author Hideyuki Kikuchi, who happily embraced the sequel, citing that the original film looked cheap. Production for the movie began in 1997 and a two minute trailer was released in late 1998. I remember watching that trailer over and over again, my anticipation for the film growing. From the beginning, Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust was set to debut in American theatres, which it did, showing in six screens across the country when released in 2000, but did it live up to the hype?
