Buffy Summers has the lifestyle any young woman could want. Cheerleading, dating the captain of the basketball team, and copious amounts of time spent shopping with friends. She had no idea of her true calling until a mysterious man named Merrick approached her and told her that she is the Slayer; one woman called to defend the world from vampires. Reluctant to concede to the fact, Buffy soon learns that Merrick speaks the truth and so begins to take her new life seriously while trying to maintain the sense of normality her life had once been. With her best friends slowly abandoning her, Buffy finds solace in the town outcast, Pike, who knows very well the terrors that have arisen. Together, they combat the forces of the old and powerful vampire, Lothos, who has his eyes set on Buffy. Written by
The prologue is set in the Dark Ages, (the centuries of barbarism which followed the collapse of the Roman Empire), and Merrick later confirms that this was before the Crusades. However, the costumes depicted are from the medieval period, which came many hundreds of years after the Dark Ages ended. See more »
I loved this movie. I'd seen it waaaaay before the series was a twinkle in anyone's eye. This film is built for total entertainment and some of the dialog is the best around just because it is so ridiculous.
When the series started, I couldn't believe it was soo dark and brooding. I figured I'd never watch it because it was not faithful to the movie. Well, I did start watching it and now I can say I get great satisfaction out of both Buffy entities. For those of you who are avid (or rabid) viewers of the series and are thinking about watching the movie beware that it is absolutely NOTHING like the series. If you are hoping for something that is like the TV series, you are bound for disappointment. Just let go of your expectations and you will find lots of humor and pleasantness in Buffy (the movie).
And remember....Pike's not a name....it's a fish.
