The best of the series?
17 March 2001 | by See all my reviews

This is the third time I've done a review on this flick;the other two times must have been stolen by the Genie Of Darkness.Anyway this is the third in the Nostradamus series and probably the best of the bunch.

Nostradamus hypnotizes Tony (the professor's assistant) one night to secretly do his bidding.Igor, Tony and the Professor(sounds like a 70's cartoon show) discover that Leo the hunchback's mother is hiding an important scroll for Nostradamus.Tony informs Nostradamus of this. Nostradamus goes to the house and orders Leo out.Then the vampire burns the hunchback's mother alive and takes the scroll.

Nostradamus then has Tony attempt to kill Igor.Igor breaks Tony from the spell and goes to face the vampire.Igor is immune to vampiric attack and is just about to stake Nostradamus.Leo shows up and breaks Igor's spine.

The vampire then manages to kill yet another victim to spite Dolan.However the grand plan of the vampire is thwarted by a ghost.The vampire then begins to doubt his power.

Some new (and idiotic) lore is revealed that the vampire must sleep on the ashes of his ancestors.Anyway Dolan and Tony steal the ashes from Nostradamus' coffin.The vampire races against time to retake the ashes or die by sunrise.

This film in the series moves along at a better clip than the rest.Sadly the next film is all downhill.Stay tuned for Blood Of Nostradamus...
