I don't know of that character you're talking about and the dialogue never sounded forced to me. (*Spoilers*) It wouldn't be fair to count the radio dialogue for that because, after all, the guy's a professional and after what they've been through that night, I believed everything he said on the radio at the end. Good to know you enjoyed it, though.
The character I was referring to was the Doctor who climbs through the window, I just thought he a bit too comedic and unrealistic compared to the other characters. Also, the dialogue I was referring to was when Grant and his producer were arguing at the beginning, about what he should and should not being saying. That said, the acting for the most part was pretty excellent.
btw, I might check out Exotica next.

I couldn't get over the fact that they named the main character Edward. Also, the antagonist was really incompetent. Turning his daughter and then mourning over the fact she was killing herself like it was completely unavoidable. I didn't understand why the vamps exploded when staked, or why sunlight cured them. It wasn't a horrible movie in my opinion, but I wouldn't call it good.
I just thought it was a totally refreshing take on the Vampire genre. Sam Neill's character wanted what he thought was best for his daughter, he hoped he could turn he in to a vampire and she'd just drink the human blood they gave her - he never thought she'd feed off herself. But yeah, the dude didn't really think shit through.
As for why the vampires exploded when staked, no reason I guess, maybe the filmmakers just thought it would be more impressive if they blew to pieces rather then just falling to the ground. As for the sunlight curing them, it was just something the filmmakers just made up for the film. I dunno, I just liked the fact the thing the vampires feared most and avoided, was the thing that could actually cure them.

Watched Evil Dead recently. For something of a student film, I thought it was really good, especially how they turned the camera into a character. Getting Evil Dead 2 on Netflix in a day or two. I'm betting that it's going to be pretty awesome. What with the chainsaws and demon arms.
Yeah, Sam Raimi was 20 years old when he made that - what a fucking badass.
But yeah, you're in for a real treat with Evil Dead II - it's what influenced me to make films of my own.
