Released in the UK back in July 06, this one managed to somehow pass under my radar. Clearly I was asleep at the time, for The Night Watch is a phenomenally successful Russian export, a vampire story set in Moscow that has sold over a million hard covers copies in Russia. Foreign rights have sold to over 15 countries and the Russian film version, hugely acclaimed, is to be remade by Hollywood following 20th Century Fox's acquisition of the film rights for $6m.
