If Dorian Gray Was A Vampire From New Jersey

(2 out of 5 stars)
"I gave this movie two stars solely for the presence of Conrad Brooks and Dolores Fuller, B-movie heroes from the classic Ed Wood days. The movie itself is, however, horrible. It is extremely difficult to follow and has numerous pointless plot elements introduced at seemingly totally random times. The film, directed by Karl Petry, has exceptionally bad acting and possibly the worst accents I can ever recall in a motion picture. Combine that with amateurish editing, very bad music, and awful sound effects and this is a pretty potent package.
The movie is highly narrated to keep the plot as lucid as possible. The storyline itself concerns an outbreak of vampirism in Newark, although much of the film is shown as a flashback to World War One. There are subplots about a woman becoming impregnated by a ghost on a washing machine in an amusement park, as well as spontaneous casket combustion. Important legal and ethical questions are also introduced: the ACLU says that vampires have rights as a minority, while the Veterans Administration becomes involved because the vampirism is a service related injury. If this all sounds like a mess, it is.
This is one of the least coherent, incompetently made films I have ever seen, and I can't recommend it except for the amusing presence of Brooks and Fuller.
The highlight of the film for me was the credit line that read "Creative Consultant Zak Snygg", so at least the credits have some entertainment value."

The anti movie

"Some years back, movies entered the anti-hero era. the heroes became less defined, less pure. This movie may be trying to go one better on that one. It may be an attempt to begin the anti movie era. The acting, writing, lighting, etc. are just plum awful. One favorite moment is where the lead vampire says "I could have been a great actor." There is a dramatic pause afterward where I was wanting somebody, anybody to ask him: "So what happened?" I can't imagine who might like this movie...I really can't. If you go ahead and buy it anyway, don't say I didn't warn you."
Yes! You Too Can Be A Movie Director!...

"A true piece of rancid head-cheese, THE IRONBOUND VAMPIRE has the look and feel of the kind of movie I'd make, which is why I'm NOT a movie director! Scenes jump about, making little or no sense. I know it's about a hippie vampire guy and his harem of toothy ghoulfriends, but the rest of the characters were so bloodless, they all seemed undead! This one gets an extra star for the naughty gal-pal stuff near the end..."
