Rose Hathaway is a dhampir, half-vampire and half-human, who is training to be a guardian at St Vladimir's Academy along with many others like her. There are good and bad vampires in their world: Moroi, who co-exist peacefully among the humans and only take blood from donors, and also possess the ability to control one of the four elements - water, earth, fire or air; and Strigoi, blood-sucking, evil vampires who drink to kill. Rose and other dhampir guardians are trained to protect Moroi and kill Strigoi throughout their education. Along with her best friend, Princess Vasilisa Dragomir, a Moroi and the last of her line, with whom she has a nigh unbreakable bond, Rose must run away from St Vladimir's, in order to protect Lissa from those who wish to harm the princess and use her for their own means.

Although the movie did not preform very well at the worldwide box office ($15,391,979 against a $30 million budget) director Mark Waters was eager to give the franchise a second chance in the form of a sequel (Vampire Academy: Frostbite). Studio Preger Entertainment agreed to fund the film on the condition that Mark Waters could get fans to raise the necessary $1.5 million on their own in proof of their support of the film. An indiegogo campaign was started and ran from August 2014 to September 2014. Fans were only able to raise $254,500 by the end of the month, thus leading to Preger Entertainment canceling plans for a sequel. See more »
Despite the statement by Rose that a dhamphir is supposed to keep their molijna marks exposed, Dimitri goes around most of the time with his hair down and his neck covered. In one of the gym scenes when his hair is up, there are no marks at all. See more »
I know movies are rarely as good as the book due in part to time issues, therefore lack of details. This movie really tested my ability to not walk out. The two largest issues for me were the casting and the poor acting but the special effects, like the dogs, were just poorly done. Ahh...Demetri what a let down! The worst casting of all!!! Some of the characters didn't even match their descriptions in the book! I was quite disappointed that the movie did not start at the beginning of the story and was narrated quite a bit in the beginning. It seemed to me to be a low budget film. That's really too bad because the book series is quite an awesome page turner! I will not see the sequel(s) and would not recommend seeing this rendition of the VA series even when it's released on DVD.
