I expected worse...

...and I got mediocre. That's alright, since I didn't expect NBC to deliver a masterpiece Horror film that only lasts for 40 something minutes. The first episode in the new season for MOH aka, Fear Itself, is your typical vampire movie that starts off with a good beginning, but ultimately gets that rushed feel towards the end, making it look and feel ridiculous. This becomes apparent enough when one sees the ending.

The Plot: Four guys (one of them is badly injured) are stuck in a remote town that has only three inhabitants: hot sisters. The menace is in the air, but not clear enough. The pale looking sisters are weird and creepy enough, but why? After various flirting encounters and some macabre sewing lessons, the real threat is shown: One of the wimpiest vampires I have ever seen. A 5 foot flying, bloodsucking midget that was covered up by humongous growls and heavy steps. What a letdown. Anyways, after all the revealing and "plot" mumbo jumbo (which is good, better than MANY other vampire movies out there), the remaining survivors try to escape and kill the un-killable vampire. Then comes the ending...not a big fan of it. I know the writers decided to avoid The Cliché, but what the f*ck? It wasn't handled that good.

In short, I expect the director of Sahara to deliver a crapfest. He didn't with this one. It was an alright, entertaining vampire movie. I hope the series gets better after this one. Brad Anderson's next week Horror installment with Eric Roberts looks interesting. Anyways, The Sacrifice was alright. A 5.
