Strange Things Happen at Sundown (2003)

A bit of comedy, a bit of gore, and way too many characters and subplots.
These are the ingredients of the low-budget independent production Strange Things Happen at Sundown. There are amusing aspects to this film, and it is most definitely not the worst vampire film I have ever seen – but I can find no real reasons to recommend it. […]

Blade: The Series (2006)

Blade: The Series is a TV show conceived as a continuation of the three Wesley Snipes Blade films, but it does not star Wesley Snipes. The show’s concept is very promising, but it is bogged down by writing issues. Severe competition and high production costs meant that it was not continued after the first season. […]

Innocence (2013)

A vampiric story of sorts, Innocence features a teenage girl who suspects that all is not right at her prestigious new school. A mix of visions, nightmares, and psychotic episodes all create a sufficiently eery atmosphere but somehow don’t really pique your interest. […]

Vampire Circus (1972)

Another of the later Hammer films, Vampire Circus combines the vampire subgenre with the subgenre of the creepy circus. While I am not a big Hammer fan, some of the creepy circus aspects in this film work very well. […]

Van Helsing: The London Assignment (2004)

Van Helsing: The London Assignment is an animated short film that can be seen as a prologue to the Van Helsing feature film, but it also works very well as its own story. The premise might be slightly silly, but there are definitely worse ways to spend half an hour than to watch this film. […]

The Little Vampire (2018)

This 2018 animated film is based on a well-established franchise, and yet it came and went without anyone really taking notice. The reception was cool, the film barely made its money back at the box office, and to this day the film has no entry in either the English nor the German Wikipedia.
This is not really surprising because while this film cannot really be called bad, it is undoubtedly rather unmemorable. […]

Buffy the Vampire Slayer [season 4] (1999-2000)

Although this season is often maligned by fans, I quite like it. I am happy with the shadowy-organisation plot, the new character constellation works, and there is some outstanding writing to be enjoyed. […]
