Blood: The Last Vampire

This trailer for the upcoming live-action Blood movie looks very promising.

Originally an anime short, Blood: The Last Vampire threw the viewer straight into a world in which hideous shape-shifting demons took on human form to feast on mortals, and only the grim and mysterious Saya could stand against them. It was "based on a concept by Mamoru Oshii" who is best known for his Ghost in the Shell animes, but who also directed the live-action sleeper sf classic, Avalon. Despite its brevity it was an intense and gripping film that spawned a series of novels and a less intense but not terrible TV series, Blood+. If this movie is even half as good as the live-action Death Note movies it'll be a must see.
