By far the best of the subspecies series
1 April 2001 | by See all my reviews

From puppetmaster to Castle freak Fullmoon pictures collection of lowbudget horror films have graced or in some cases disgraced the screen for sometime. Yet even in Fullmoon's lamest efforts we see the attempt to achieve a certain level of low end quality. Sadly, they tend to fall short. But occationally they hit the bullseye. Such is the case with the solid series of vampire films, Subspecies.

As with most modern vampire flicks, Subspecies serves up the standard amounts of gore and undead erotica. What sets them apart from other lowbudget horror films is good acting, moody atmosphere and well defined charactors.

In the subspecies series we are treated to an interesting game of cat and mouse waged between two erstwhile vampires. Radu Vladislas, a cadaverous master bloodsucker and the object of his desire, the fetching fledgling Michelle Morgan.

After a pedestrian first outing subspecies 2 elevates the series with the addition of talented Denice Duff in the role of Michelle. She and well regarded Dutch actor Anders Hove who plays Radu share an excellent on screen chemistry.

Picking up where the original film left off we find Michelle fleeing castle Vladislas for the imagined saftey of Bucharest. Radu, with the aid of some slick, shadowy special effects, pursues. In Bucharest the two vie for possession of the bloodstone, a mystical artifact known to 'drip with the blood of saints'.

As events unfold, both Radu and Michelle acquire allies to aid them in their respective causes. It is through these secondary charactors interesting insight into Radu and Michelle is given.

In conversations with his 'mummy' we discover Radu to be nothing like the vile nightcreature we have come to know. He is more like a frightened child. Shunned by his family. Unable to mingle with normal humans due to his ghoulish appearance, Radu is lonely. He is terrified by the prospect of being alone throughout enternity. He needs Michelle as much for company as any sexual desires he may harbor.

In Michelle we find not the cringing co-ed from the first film. Miss Duff's interperetation reveals a fiercely determined young woman valiantly struggling against the bloodlust of Vampirism. Her mortality lost she opts for the next best thing. She plans to use the bloodstone for sustenance rather than attacking human beings. In this way she hopes to retain a semblence of her humanity.

Rarely has such depth been given to charactors in a film of this level.

The movie itself moves along at a steady pace ending in a satisfying cliffhanger climax. By the far the best of the subspecies series.
