Imagine a world where vampires and humans live peacefully alongside each other and where the thirsty bloodsuckers are the next step in human evolution. 1960's Nuovo Zelandia is just such a place. Available on DVD on 22nd October, just in time for Halloween, Perfect Creature is a horror movie with a difference - a highly original retelling of the vampire myth.

For 300 years, vampires and humankind have lived in harmony. Until now. This delicate balance suddenly looks set to be destroyed as one of the vampires has started to do what no other vampire has done before - to hunt down and prey upon human beings. If the news gets out, the fragile bond that exists between the two races will be shattered forever.

Dougray Scott (Mission Impossible 2, Enigma, Ripley's Game) stars as Silus, who is sent out to catch the renegade vampire, Edgar. Joining forces with a human police captain played by Saffron Burrows (Troy, Enigma), Silus must track Edgar down quickly, as he is becoming increasingly dangerous and insane. But as they soon discover, Edgar harbours dark secrets.

Perfect Creature is the second feature by writer/director Glenn Standring whose debut, The Irrefutable Truth About Demons, became one of New Zealand's most successful film exports.

Bringing fresh blood to the veins of the vampire genre, Perfect Creature will appeal to anyone who enjoyed The Da Vinci Code and will delight fans of horror everywhere.
