not as bad a movie as some others seem to think
8 June 2004 | by See all my reviews

Don't be too hard on this movie. I myself have also seen many, many movies, both foreign and otherwise, and this was Not a bad movie. When you have seen bad actors in a graveyard, trying to re-incarnate a "dead man" who is some extra wearing a badly fitting dirt-covered mask, then being chased by a flying "alien" baby, which is obviously a doll being suspended from a wire making badly recorded backward-tape sounds, ThEn you have seen a truly bad movie (I forget what the name of it was). The key to ThIs movie is to see it for what it could have been, and not for what it is. And, also, to ignore the camera booms which appear in almost every scene. That was the fault probably of an overly tired camera boom guy, and an obviously comatose editor. The director, however, was actually pretty good, the music for each scene fit perfectly, the acting was kinda good, and the special effects were pretty good. And sometimes they even poked fun at themselves. And as for Adam West, if you have seen his Other acting projects, you would know that this is actually some pretty good acting on his part, the best hands down he has ever done. (My way of saying that this director milked the best possible performance from this guy that he is actually capable of giving)...

The girls all looked GrEaT, and acted really well. The makers of this movie were unfathomably jealous of their obviously PG rating, and went to bible-belt-esque pains to retain it; (there could have been more screen acreage devoted to traditionally hot vampire sex moments), but I find it hard to hold that against them too much, it made the movie capable of being watched by kids, and we certainly need more of those...
