Vivian's decision to run against the pack places her new boyfriend in mortal danger in BLOOD AND CHOCOLATE, adapted from the popular teen novel by Annette Curtis Klause. This pre-TWILIGHT romantic Horror film finds trouble balancing the two genres, and often delivers more unintentional humor than terror or suspense while forging several regretful similarities to AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN PARIS. The unconvincing cast causes the film to fall flat on more than one occasion, especially throughout the passionless performances by the two young lovers. In the rush to introduce the players and establish the growing conflict within the pack, director Katja von Garnier neglects to develop any form of rapport between Agnes Bruckner and Hugh Dancy, and even less of an emotional connection between the characters and the audience. What we are left with is a Horror movie without any scares, and a Romance that is rife with cliches, but lacking in true love.
