While I will not review Marco D'Ambrosio's full soundtrack for the anime, Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust, I will say that it is a pretty good soundtrack for a pretty good film. Like the movie, though, the soundtrack has some really great standout moments. The film itself does an excellent job of shedding the fan-service moments the original is famous for. Bloodlust also features some incredible animation, and for anime fans, as well as fans of action films in general, it is most definitely worth watching. D'Ambrosio's soundtrack helps mightily: without visuals, the dark mood set by D'Ambrosio's "The Castle Chaythe" can conjure a structure more gothically horrifying than the one in the film.
