Boring and pretty silly, 3 November 2006
Author: preppy-3 from United States

Nancy (Sandra Harrison) is an angry young girl who's sent, against her will, to a private boarding school. There she falls under the eye of the science teacher (Louise Lewis) who needs her anger to show how anger can control the world, not weapons. (No, I don't understand it either) She hypnotizes Nancy and, somehow, can turn her into a vampire who attacks and kills...

As you can see this is pretty silly stuff. The plot makes no sense with plot holes left and right. The acting is OK (Lewis come off best) and, like other AIP pictures, the film comes to a screeching halt when some guy named Tab (Jerry Blaine) sings some dumb song called "Puppy Love". The "dancing" in this one has to be seen to be believed. The only somewhat interesting thing in this is an(implied) lesbian link between Harrison and Lewis.

This gets a 2 only because of the makeup job done on Harrison when she becomes a vampire. Pointed ears and eyes, hysterically long fangs and claws and a white streak running through her hair! Supposedly Harrison begged producer Herman Cohen for this role--he said, after she got it, she acted like Joan Crawford! Also, many years later, this was shown at the NY Museum of Modern Art--Harrison actually called them and asked them to please not show it. That should tell you something. B-movie fans and kids might like this but others beware!
