I believe this is the first review I've done of a movie I couldn't stand. This seems appropriate since this is the only vampire movie I can EVER remember seeing that I didn't at least remotely enjoy. (Heck, I even rented "A Polish Vampire in Burbank" more than once!)
"The Understudy" had to be the most boring horror film I've ever seen. In fact, I honestly can't recall now, whether I made it all the way to the end or not. I hate movies in which you cannot ever really tell whether you are seeing fantasy or reality. That's fine for a short dream sequence -- but not the bulk of a movie!
The one and only highlight for me was the film editor (or whoever he was) looking at a strip of film & inexplicably getting the willies -- then seeing one frame on which the vampire had revealed its fangs. Quite a highlight for a full-length film, no?
This film might be useful for breaking a child of his/her fear of vampires. The only thing scary about this one was the fear of going to sleep and falling off the sofa. The only "Children of the Night" you hear in the background are the turkeys gobbling over this clucker!
