While personally I agree with you, (hell, I'm tired of vampires OUTSIDE of WoW, let alone inside it) I think judging this piece for its lore-appropriateness or story is completely missing the point. Those very elements you pointed out suggest to me that this piece was created more as an exploration of visual and auditory style and a means for the creator to try out and develop new editing techniques than as a vehicle for storytelling. And in those regards the video is a spectacular success.It is nothing if not visually remarkable. The direction of and composition of shots are spectacular, and the edits and effects all work in harmony to draw the viewer in and evoke atmosphere. The audio is similarly well-chosen, though I found some of the transitions jarring. (The credits do not list an artist, so I am left assuming it is ripped from other sources.)So, as far as story goes - no, it's nothing original. And if you don't like vampires, this will be one continuous, big eye roll for you. But as far as being visually and auditorially appealing - A+. If you DO like vampires, and don't mind seeing the predictable and well-worn vampire plot, then you will no doubt enjoy seeing them stylistically rendered via WoW in this film.
