This has always been my favourite season of Buffy, even though it is possibly not the best. It features a couple of strong episodes, but also a number of weak ones. One of season 3’s strengths lies in the fact that the combination of new and returning characters provides an excellent mix. […]
Transylvania Twist is a rather lame comedy, but in its harmlessness it is simultaneously also rather inoffensive. Some of the jokes land, but quite possibly not enough to justify watching what is – in the end – a rather poorly patched together project. […]
This vampire adventure drama from Russia is a strictly-by-the-numbers affair. The film (also known under titles such as “Ghouls” and “Vamps”) looks very good, and there are hardly any bad or disappointing elements in it, but it is bogged down by the fact that it is such a middle-of-the-road story. […]
Season 2 has improved acting and it introduces additional characters. The tone and the themes are much darker than in season 1, and the vibe of despair is stronger than anywhere else in the first four seasons. But there is still a good amount of humour mixed in at times. […]
This cinematic release under the Tales from the Crypt banner is a somewhat lacklustre comedy-gorefest with a weak story. […]
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. […]
A US Interpol agent is sent on a mission to a remote European village that is suffering from a suspiciously high death rate amongst young women. Are there supernatural forces at work, as the superstitious villagers seem to believe?
This German-Yugoslavian co-production (released under English titles such as Cave of the Living Dead or Night of the Vampires) suffers from rather lame writing. It is not a particularly bad film, but I cannot think of a single reason to watch this. […]
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. […]
This is a rather simple action film of middling quality. But it has a nice cast and adequate writing, and it looks rather decent. So while Slayer’s budget appears to have been at the lower end, it is not nearly as bad a film as it could have been. […]
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. […]
