Movie Reviews

Very Mediocre, Old-Fashioned Vampire Flick.....
The Jaundiced Eye | Texas, USA | 09/20/2008
(2 out of 5 stars)

"This movie reminded me of the old vampire movies of the 1960's, generally from Hammer Films, however this movie really didn't even rise to that level. They all have a familiar recipe: unknown cast; stilted, amateurish acting; attractive women in danger; rough scene changes and editing that often leave you confused about what has happened; discordant music; no regard for plausibility; etc.

The plot is familiar and trite: a handsome vampire is unearthed and released in the Mexican desert near a small town. Bent upon revenge for his premature burial, he wreaks havoc upon a group of tourists and scantily-clad beauties before finally being exposed to sunlight and destroyed. Yawn.

The simple fact that this movie relies on a 40-year-old style and premise, and yet does absolutely nothing to improve upon it, is reason enough to leave it on the shelf. It is not the worst movie I have seen in recent years, but it offers insufficient entertainment to warrant the 88 minutes it takes to watch it. Every scene has been done countless times before, and generally better. Unless you are a fan of childish, simplistic 60's vampire movies, pass this one by."
