Four low budget Vampire movies on one double sided DVD. The films included are:
"Shadow Zone: The Undead Express" (1996) Kid-friendly spooky TV movie (ala "Goosebumps") about a New York City teen who discovers a troop of vampires living in an abandoned subway tunnel. Slow moving and very talky, this bored my kids stiff in about twenty minutes.
"Nadja" (1994) David Lynch produced this black & white art house vamp flick in which Dracula's niece comes to New York City and strikes up a relationship with a bisexual night owl housewife, much to the consternation of her husband. I'm not going to lie to you folks, this is one of the worst movies I've ever seen.
"The Case of the Whitechapel Vampire" (2002) - Made for TV flick starring Matt "Max Headroom" Frewer as Sherlock Holmes, investigating a series of murders that may be vampire related. Not a bad mystery but it doesn't really belong on a "Horror" or "Vampire" movie set.
"Vampire Wars: Battle For The Universe" (2005) aka "Bloodsuckers," this is a fun SyFy Channel style gore fest that rips off the "Alien," "Blade" and "Underworld" series in a story about space faring vampire hunters. This was the best movie on this compilation, which says more about the other films present than about the quality of this particular flick.
Like most of these 4-packs, worth a look if you like cheesy "B" movies.

This box set is made up of 4 films of varying quality.
Shadow Zone: Undead Express is a kid's film that is actually not bad and has it's share of PG-13 scares. Not a bad film for the younger set and the young at heart.
Vampire Wars is pretty bad. It was one of those cash-in vampire flicks of the early 2000's that tries to put vampires in space and sets them against a bunch of cliche'd vampire hunters who would be better-suited in a John Carpenter flick. Transfer is pretty bad, too.
Nadja is a stylistic erotic vampire story in black and white that tells the tragic story of a couple of older vampires living in the modern world. Really the bright spot of this set since it's a hard movie to track down outside of the set.
Finally, The Case of the Whitechapel Vampire is part of the Hallmark Entertainment Sherlock Holmes series featuring Matt Frewer (Doctor, Doctor and Max Headroom) as the venerable detective tracking down a vampiric Jack the Ripper. A good add-on, but more of a detective thriller than a vampire movie...and would be better in the collection of Sherlock Holmes films that Frewer did.
All in all, Nadja is the backbone of this set and worthy of the credit on it's own. Undead Express and Whitechapel Vampire are worthy add-ons...kind of icing on the cake. And Vampire Wars is the heartburn you get if you watch too much. So, there you have it, in a nutshell. Or vein, as the case may be.
