An enjoyable and for the time, original take on the Vampire legend
19 September 2000 | by (Nashville, TN) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed this movie very much when it came out and I would love to see it again. Rick Springfield was my idol when I was a teen, and I have liked most of what I've seen him in. I also liked the TV series based off this movie. Like I said, it was for the time a very original take on the old standby Vampire legend
