Buffy Summers has the lifestyle any young woman could want. Cheerleading, dating the captain of the basketball team, and copious amounts of time spent shopping with friends. She had no idea of her true calling until a mysterious man named Merrick approached her and told her that she is the Slayer; one woman called to defend the world from vampires. Reluctant to concede to the fact, Buffy soon learns that Merrick speaks the truth and so begins to take her new life seriously while trying to maintain the sense of normality her life had once been. With her best friends slowly abandoning her, Buffy finds solace in the town outcast, Pike, who knows very well the terrors that have arisen. Together, they combat the forces of the old and powerful vampire, Lothos, who has his eyes set on Buffy.Written by
When Merrick takes Buffy to the graveyard he shows her Robert Berman's grave and says he was buried 3 days ago. Yet the grave already bears a carved tombstone which would not have been possible in such a short time. See more »

Buffy the Vampire Slayer was a fairly average movie from 1992. Little did I know when I watched it back in 1992 that it would spawn a TV series five years later.
Kristy Swanson did a great job as Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Some of the other actors such as Donald Pleasance did a great job too but to be honest some of the young actors were so annoying and at times this movie had some bad scenes in it.
The movie would probably have benefited if it had been a bit longer. It seemed a bit too rushed when it came out. And I hate to be totally negative but the climax was anti-climatic if you know what I mean.
The film isn't totally bad-perhaps that was down to the combined talents of Swanson and Pleasance. If you're a fan of the TV series then I wouldn't recommend this as you might come away disappointed. If you've never seen the TV series then watch this next time you've got nothing to do.
