Painful
8 June 2002 | by (Dr Infernal Flesh's Lair) – See all my reviews

Ouch! This film about vampires (not sure what it has to do with Dracula) is painfully bad.

The movie follows a group vampires that pretty much have a monopoly on getting dead bodies in the town. They put them on a table that glows then suck their blood and shove a stake through their heart shortly after.

The head vamp is the head of a funeral home. He isn't too bad in his role and pulls off the creepy feel. Only the screenplay is dreadful so his lines can be amazingly awful some times.

Then an old lady dies and that's when the Fonda's get involed. Well, they have some problems with our funeral dude and that's when the starts.

The movie has bad acting, a horrible script, and poor cinematography to say the least. But those things are not the biggest mistakes in this film. The problem is it thinks it is a serious movie. There is no fun merely a boring, bad movie. There is no campiness to the movie, only failed attmepts at making a horror movie. When the director could have told us "Yes, I realize this a b-movie, we're just having fun" instead he says "I'm an artist!"

One other odd thing about this movie, it doesn't have the normal big boobed blonde. Instead smaller breasted women and very little nudity, none in a sexual context. Which is a plus that the director didn't fall back on sex, like so many poor horror films do.

Overall, 2 out of 10. It should be a 1.5 but I can't give it that.
