bloodsucking sorority gals on the rampage! Who can resist?
4 October 2002 | by (Oakland CA) – See all my reviews

Fairly amusing film about a girl in a reform school who's hypnotically turned into a vampire and sets out to kill a few classmates. Interestingly, this film reverses many horror movie cliches by making the young attractive heroine the monster herself. Some imaginative sequences, hokey dialogue with pretty good photography. Not as good as the more famous "I Was a Teenage Werewolf" or the much better "How to Make a Monster", but well worth watching for fans of drive in fun.
