He meets up with a fellow bloodsucker called Eve, with whom he has been in love for centuries. They rekindle their relationship and she moves in. Then her sister arrives, and before you know it, Adam’s carefully ordered existence – and his eternal passion – has been entirely disrupted.

As yet, we’ve not come across a U.S. release date, but the film will be released in Britain early next year, so fingers crossed.
