Certain Dark Things rises from the grave

This week saw the re-release of Certain Dark Things It's a neo-noir (I jokingly call it a 'neon' noir) charting the desperate escape plans of a vampire on the run whose only ally in Mexico City is a young garbage collector who is soon way over his head. Daft Punk meets Dracula.
