Bordello of Blood (1996)

This cinematic release under the Tales from the Crypt banner is a somewhat lacklustre comedy-gorefest with a weak story. […]

Les morsures de l’aube (2001)

A man stumbles through Paris’s night-life looking for a man he doesn’t know. Based on a novel by prize-winning French author Tonino Benacquista, this film (also known as Love Bites) is full of untapped potential and minor plot holes. […]

Nocturna (2015)

Nocturna – known in the UK as Vampire Blood – is an interesting and not-too-bad vampire film set in New Orleans. The film had the potential to be good, but has a number of short-comings that drag it down a bit. […]

Love at First Bite (1979)

Having been forced to flee his Transylvanian home, Count Dracula travels to New York in search of the love of his life, who has been reborn as a supermodel.

A lot about this film feels dated, but it is not any worse than the vampire comedies you know from the 1980s. […]

The Monster Club (1981)

The Monster Club is a 1981 anthology film whose frame narrative stars Vincent Price and John Carradine. Three stories are told over the course of this film, one of which is a vampire tale. […]

Blade II (2002)

The second film in the franchise is approximately on par with the first one, as far as the overall quality is concerned. Unfortunately, the villain is somewhat lacking – again. But there is a lot to like about this film, especially of course Ron Perlman. […]

Die Vampirschwestern 2: Fledermäuse im Bauch (2014)

This pre-teen / early teen vampire film from Germany does probably not exist in an English version. Like its predecessor it is well-produced but rather bland. […]

Vampires: The Turning (2005)

A vampire gang war, some vampire hunters, a prophecy, and a damsel in distress. All this could be the elements of a solid B-movie, but this cash-grab (trying to leech off an established franchise) is below mediocre and features a male hero who is both obnoxious and bland. […]

Guardians of the Night (2016)

This is not a B-movie, but it feels like one. The insecure, derivative writing (which recycles every plot point we already have seen in bigger and better films) is the main reason for this. Much more could have been done with this had the few interesting aspects been actually explored instead of neglected. […]
