The movie was not bad. It wasn't great either. I enjoyed it, so it gets points for that. It was relatively predictable, the effects were kind of mediocre, but Lance Henrickson was good, the girls were cute, and it was about vampires, so hell, it couldn't be all bad. I think, had I paid 8.00 to see it in a theatre I would be a bit ragged off. But in that all I lost was a couple of hours on an early Saturday night... I am content. I would give it 6 fang marks out of 20 (remember there are two fang marks to each bite... smile) Watch it on Sci-Fi but I wouldn't spend more than a 4 dollar bargain bin price on the DVD if and when it comes out. As for me, I am going to pop open a pabst blue ribbon and watch House of 1000 Corpses again.
