Creepy but camp entertainment
18 June 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I remember this as a boy and it scared the cr*p out of me. It was truly eerie, especially the way the victim could sense the vampire nearby by a cold death-like feeling, and the way the vampire moved around like an ectoplasmic blob of energy spying on his next target.

The Vorvon's black nails were pretty darned evil as well.....except for when he began to press them into Wilma's throat and they started to bend like cheap plastic. LOL!

Fond memories.

Also, Wilma made a very sexy, and sultry seductress as a 'poisoned' victim - she always had that quality as a potential in her character, and this episode just brought it out more. "Buck......it felt so goooooooooood!" :-D
