Black As Night is a 2021 coming of age vampire movie set in New Orleans, Ombreaux Housing complex, that houses mostly recovering addicts and disenfranchised homeless people.

From Presearch: Black As Night Synopsis
Although it's not the usual type of movie I like to watch, I attempted to get more into the Halloween spirit and drop some more in theme reviews, given the month we are in.
In saying that it was watchable, just not the type of movie I would make a habit of watching, their is a strong storyline and character narration and the performances were not half bad either, it just wasn't my type of movie.
I felt it lacked a little something but couldn't quite put my finger on what that was, though I will emphasis I did enjoy how the story weaved and became darker the further into the plot you became.
If the vampire movie thing is a genre you like this will definitely raise some veins in your neck, you might not get that bite you were expecting, but it's enjoyable non the less
