The character "Forry Ackerman" is a tribute to the film's associate producer, Forrest J. Ackerman, who also was the Editor of "Famous Monsters of Filmland" magazine (and also coined the title characters nickname - "Vampi"). See more »
This is rather sad in a way. In another reality I could have called you friend.
Adam Van Helsing:
In any reality I call you scum!

What would one expect from a film (even if based on a comic book) that has a vampire named Vlad coming from the planet Drakulon -- a planet populated entirely by vampires?
Pretty much from pressing the play button on the VCR myself and the two friends I watched this were in stitches, laughing till we cried. The acting probably isn't the best in the world, the costuming is at times camp (though who are we to complain about a babe running around in a bikini with a golden bat drawing our attention to her crotch -- when it isn't focussed on her ample cleavage or her gorgeous eyes? Oddly, the guys in the film don't seem to notice this), only it was the special effects that first set us off as the guns started shooting -- or whatever it was those guns were meant to be doing.
The script, well...we don't get _MST3K_ in this country so I don't know if _Vampirella_ has been given that treatment. No matter: Without straining our brains we were doing a good job of supplying our own commentary as this film sets itself up for that constantly. Though _Vampirella_ simply doesn't need the witty comments for you to end up rolling on the floor do add them; the audience participation really adds to the enjoyment. Get your mates around, pop the tape in the player, and let the hilarity ensue.
