Broken Frontier reviews Impaler #3

Impaler is a revelation in a pool of imitators. Bram Stoker gave pop culture a great gift with his classic novel Dracula and William Harms and Matt Timson are running with it and making it all theirs. Whatever films, or books, or comics, or TV series aren’t inspired by the fanged creatures of night are equally smitten by the current zombie craze. Vampires have always been deadlier though, and far more charismatic. They easily fit into any genre, but Harms and Timson know what has made them hang in the shadows of popular entertainment for all these decades, or centuries. What the duo have done is create a perfect film in waiting. I can see David Fincher directing this with great aplomb.
