Should have been called "I was a teenage vampire"
29 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

For the life of me I can't figure out why the title of this movie wasn't "I was a Teenage Dracula". It was made by the same studio, American International Pictures, that created the wonderful teen 50's horror movies "I was a Teenage Werewolf" and "I was a Teenage Frankenstein".

Sandra Harrison plays Nancy Perkins, a young woman who is dumped off at a boarding school for girls by her inattentive father who has remarried a young blonde gold digger just six weeks after his first wife's death. Needless to say, Nancy is not happy about this situation at all and she has a lot of anger about having to leave her previous school and her boyfriend, Glen.

Louise Lewis portrays the controlling science teacher who under hypnosis turns the vulnerable Nancy into a vampire for reasons that I couldn't understand, some bizarre theory about proving how the evil in the human race is stronger than the atom bomb...I didn't get it, but the movie is still a lot of fun. A lot of the comments here seem to hint at a lesbian relationship between the crazy science teacher and some of her students, but I didn't see that at all.

This movie is typical of it's time in the fact that it has to have a really corny "rock and roll" number and this one, "Puppy Love" has to be heard to be believed. It has to be a joke, I don't think anybody can listen to it without laughing, it's that bad.

I love all of American International Pictures 1950's horror movies, but I can honestly say that this one is my favorite, even though it is not as well known. If you haven't seen this one, check it out. There is creepy vampire make up, two killings in a spooky old cemetery and the corny "Puppy Love" song and dance number. You'll enjoy it!!!
