Pretty Much Just as good as AIP's other teenage horrors

Yes...pretty much. It's very similar to "I Was A Teenage Werewolf." The real differences are that the protagonist is a female and of course the monster is a vampire instead of a werewolf. It's got pretty much the same ingredients: Teens, bad rock songs ( I personally think the songs are great ),hypnotism, monsters. Features a great opening scene and a cool graveyard attack set. I don't understand why this film is often pushed aside and seldom mentioned. Maybe it just needed to be called "I Was a Teenage Vampire." I think the atmosphere is pretty solid and I enjoy this picture enough to rate it an 8...yes an 8. Check it out.
