Chris Purnell, a man who’s no novice to movie production, had a vision. Having once been a cinematographer, he knew exactly what he wanted to see in the making of Night Kaleidoscope. With a very small budget, he and Grant McPhee filmed the entire movie in one week, taking a gory vampire tale beyond creative measures.
The story tells of Fion, a down on his luck paranormal investigator, on the prowl for a vamp couple. Killing savagely for as much sport as dinner, they prey on the drugged, the promiscuous, and the beautiful. When they lose one of their victims, they are compelled to hunt her down, but they realize, much too late, she's approached an enemy of theirs.
It takes a while to really understand what’s happening in this film. There were various aspects of the movie that raised questions on the two powerful creatures. Many concerning Fion, who needs a continuous flow of illegal narcotics in order to track them, which wasn't truly explained. Sadly, his process doesn’t work well, causing near misses of his opponents and more death amongst the city's nightlife.
The story doesn’t carry enough meat to be attention-grabbing, in my opinion. The antagonists come off as cannibals, more than vampires, using a dull knife to cut open their victims, instead of their bare hands or fangs. Then there’s some sort of love concern between the so-called heroes, and it comes out of the blue, making the interaction bland.
There’s fab cinematography though, and an energetic soundtrack. With there being more scene flashing and slow motion than dialogue, Night Kaleidoscope seems to focus on becoming a type of visual art, instead of a story share. Night Kaleidoscope is due to release later in 2017.
