Two cheapies from Charles "Puppet Master" Band on the same DVD.
MERIDIAN: An odd mix of Gothic romance and creature feature starring a very young, very hot Sherilyn Fenn ("Twin Peaks") as an American college girl who inherits an Italian castle, which comes complete with ghosts and an ancient curse. Almost like a softcore "Beauty and the Beast," the story doesn't make much sense but Fenn spends about a quarter of the film topless so therefore I was entertained.
DECADENT EVIL: In this gore-and-boobs no budget quickie, a midget vampire hunter (Phil Fondacaro, who must be the busiest short guy in the B-movie industry) tracks down a group of shapely vampires who work as strippers. An extremely quick film (around 70 minutes, including beginning and end credits!) made this one feel more like an episode of "Tales From the Crypt" rather than a legitimate feature release. But hey, it had blood, it had T&A, it had a weird puppet creature in a bird cage, what more do you need from a Charles Band movie?
Meridian: Three Stars
Decadent Evil: One and a half star
