Hyacinth
13 November 2014 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Lesley Ann Warren stars as a young woman named Hyacinth who is in fact a reluctant vampire, who lives on a barge anchored in a canal by her father. She cannot cross the running water, but since the canal is slowly be drained, will be able to cross it to be with a young man named Ron(played by Robert Pratt) who suspects the truth, but is unable to resist her alluring beauty, so it looks like her father may finally have to take action... Effective horror tale is well directed by actor Leonard Nimoy, who imbues the episode with atmospheric menace, though certain plot points are too vague, and ending too abrupt. Still, Warren is most convincing as the hard to resist vampire.
