A sequel that feels more like a tacked-on coda than a film in its own right, Underworld: Evolution suffers from the introduction of new characters and the subsequent retconning. Not necessarily a bad film, but no match for the first one. […]
A good cast and a decent premise are wasted in a film that fails to excite or engage its audience. […]
Ideas from several other films have been harvested in order to create True Bloodthirst. The end result is a decent (if run-of-the-mill) B movie which ranks above similar shlock – in terms of quality, not in terms of originality. […]
Vampiro is an unmitigated disaster with no redeeming features, no plot, and a script that seems to have been cobbled together in less than five minutes. […]
A typical “trapped teens” genre flick, which is looking good, but on the whole is pretty mediocre. Higanjima is overly melodramatic and at two hours running time feels way too long. […]
A muddled and unsatisfying sequel to the equally unsatisfying Interview with the Vampire, Queen of the Damned is stuffed full with characters and plot points from two Anne Rice novels. And it uses none of it to tell a decent story. […]
Jim Wynorski’s film, an attempt to introduce Forrest J. Ackerman’s comic book creation Vampirella to the big screen, fails on almost every front. […]
John Carpenter’s work is a nice vampire film with a decent plot and some style. Unfortunately, the acting in the leading roles does not always hold up. […]

Which in the end means that, unfortunately, the good acting and some honest effort on most fronts cannot make up for an “empty” film and a very thin plot. […]
Cross-pollinating Twilight with Harry Potter, this half-baked novel adaptation is brought down by poorly scripted dialogue and glaring tonal inconsistencies. Seemingly unguided by the director, and saddled with lines that do not work on screen, the cast stumble through this film in search of a common tone, but fail. […]
