Storyline

The Daughter of Darkness is an atmospheric, sub-hallucinogenic venture into the world of the unknown. The enigma facing the young woman is the identity of her father. Unfortunately for her she becomes drawn into a small Romanian underworld of brooding menace, darkness, torture chambers and bizarrely over make-overed vampires. The moody undertones and well chosen locations are certainly a bonus as is the comically funny finale. Written by Paul Lancaster <pbl1@ukc.ac.uk>

I would LOVE to watch this movie again!
3 January 2005 | by Cinema_LoverSee all my reviews

I remember Daughter of Darkness from 1990, I was 14 at the time (hard to believe that part of the 90s is 15 years ago!) and I found to be a very compelling film. This was a great little flick by made for TV standards, and they had a unique take on vampire lore. From what I remember, the vampire's tongue had some sort of fangs or pricks on it. I remember this film being VERY sexy too. It turned me on at age 14 back then. I would probably think it's stupid today, but I would still love to watch this again. I wish I could say more about this movie, but I just don't remember enough. It aired on CBS from what I remember. What I was doing watching CBS at age 14 back in 1990 I can't tell you. In 1990 CBS was still the 45+ year old peoples channel.
