It’s too bad U.S. audiences haven’t gotten a chance to see the Death Note movies yet; while they’re certainly not straightforward horror movies, they are very cool manga adaptations and offer an alternative to those who are sick to death of typical “J-horror”.
A whole slew of new pics have shown up online from Blood: The Last Vampire, the live-action adaptation of the popular anime of the same name.
The official site for the Korean Film Council is reporting that filming on Blood: The Last Vampire started back on March 15th with Ronnie (Freddy Vs. Jason) Yu still at the helm.

Ronnie Yu recently chatted it up with the folks over at Ain’t It Cool about his latest martial arts flick, Fearless, and during the course of the conversation the subject of Blood: The Last Vampire was brought up. Yu will be making the wildly popular anime into a live action feature film with shooting to take place in Melbourne, Australia as well as Tokyo.
While we wait to see if the Japanese horror film Death Note, based on the manga of the same name about a kid who finds a notebook that kills anyone whose name is written in it, is actually as good as its homeland box office indicates, D.N. Dream Partners have announced that they’re sinking money into TV toon based on the film.
