The story follows Michael Morbius, a biochemist with a rare blood disease. Michael was told during his life that he would die before he reached his current age, which led him to believe that he was still alive to find a cure. While searching for this possible cure, he accidentally infects himself with some form of vampirism after allowing a bat to drink blood from a cut on his palm. This doctor, played by Jared Leto, decides to use his new powers to hunt people he thinks do not deserve to live, even though he is disgusted by his new desire to drink blood.
The concept of this story is interesting, although it feels much more like a movie about an anti-hero than a horror character. This movie will probably be enjoyable for Marvel fans and it is exciting to see the superhero corporation adventure into darker waters- but it just doesn’t feel like a horror movie. The preview is more similar to a trailer about an anti-hero than one for a horror character.
Now, this does not mean that it is going to be a bad movie. It just might not be as scary as other horror movies out there- we will have to wait until it comes out in 2021 to find out.
Director: Daniel Espinosa
