|This stylized fairy tale makes for an unusual horror.
When her gangster father is abducted by a mysterious queen deep within the forest, innocent little Lila (Smith) sets out to reunite with Pops and dispense some Christian-style forgiveness.
Through the woods Lila goes, but upon her way she meets dark lady Lemora (Gilb, in a mesmerizing performance), a host of undead zombies, an army of renegade bloodsuckers and a creepy pack of craven children.
Whew. Sound weird?
A surreal terror that boasts some inspired creativity, Lemora is a unique effort worth the viewer's time thanks to its lush color palette, Smith's spirited performance, a beautiful score and the overall moody vibe right out of a Grimms Fairy tale.
And while it never reaches the sublime level it could have, still this bizarre little watch is always captivating.
Also known as Lemora, the Lady Dracula.
