A must see for the college psych class
16 April 2003 | by rob_w_loweSee all my reviews

Don't watch this with the expectations of seeing bats and fangs. The biggest disappointment is the title. I've seen MUCH worse. An actor can only go as far as a director allows them to. I have a feeling that the younger cast could've displayed their talents much more if they had the motivation in the script to do it. I've been acting for over 26 years and felt sorry at times for the cast. Some scripts/lines etc. can only be spoken and acted out one way. Unfortunately, when that happens, you have to go with it. There were times when I would ask myself "how could I do it better?" and the result would be what is already there. After watching Vampire Clan, the first thing that came to my mind was another, somewhat similar, "cult following" classic called Helter Skelter. Although different in many ways, those who have ever seen Helter Skelter also remember that it was a deep movie. I would have to agree that the teenage population, along with college students, could probably get more out of this if it was viewed as a project and not to be entertained. Vampire Clan is one of those movies where you have to stick with it from the get go or you lose interest fast. If that happens then you become lost with the plot. Except for a script, that I'm sure was taken from what the writers could only obtain from the actual news events, and a few choppy editing sequences (shortly after the scene with the cop while Rod was putting gas in the vehicle), it's not that bad of a movie. Don't blame the actors if you feel the finished product is poor. They are only one element. Out of a rating of 1-10, 10 being the highest, I would give it a 6 on the entertainment level. If a college professor could get away with showing this to a psych class then I would up the rating to an 8.5. I would love to see the conversations about this piece.
