1.0 out of 5 stars Shame on you: LIONSGATE..."A VHS Transfer"? August 12, 2007
Format:DVD
Dont be fooled, Lionsgate is releasing several of these (The Lost Collection) of cheap quality, Full Screen versions of some of your old favorites that never made it to DVD, as INTENDED! My friend has this movie of (The Lost Collection) version. When compared to my old VHS version, we found it was frame to frame exactly the same, and even visual quality, as my Full Screen VHS Version. No Digital Inhancement, no Quality Up Date..Same movie just different Format: DVD..I checked up on all of these, (The Lost Collection) Releases, and they are exactly all the same, Full Screen, no quality inhancements..Basciclly, what you see is what you get..Anyone can go to Wal Mart and buy a DVD RECORDER, and you can make a transfer of any VHS Movie, but it wont change or enhance your recording, just because its on a DVD Disk. Does Lionsgate think we are stupid??..Well I guess they do because their (Lost collection) series is growing..I Know DVD format has replaced The Old VHS format, but come on, this is one of my favorite movies. I to was waiting the Grand DVD release of this wounderful movie, and "not a direct transfer from VHS", is what it exactally looks like..Shame on you Loinsgate..we Movie Lovers deserve MUCH Better than this sham of your fast buck, money making video transfer!..Atlest you dont fool me. Sorry if you disagee with my Review, but "I call them as I see Them".

5.0 out of 5 stars Cheese Glorious Cheese! April 12, 2001
Format:VHS Tape
Combine Tiger Beat with Degrassi Junior High and add a dash of Bram Stoker and there you have it! A Neurotic Dallas teenager without the slightest hint of a southern accent being coached by Rene Auberjenois on how to be a member of the pack. Fabulously entertaining I love this movie. a great popcorn movie, fun fun fun!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best Teenage Vampire flicks ever February 8, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have loved this movie from the first time I saw it - while everyone else liked that one with Jim Carey in it, which I just thought was silly, I was watching this one (and "Rockula," which I hope will someday be put out in DVD format).

Jeremy and Ralph are best friends - but while Ralph apparently has no trouble asking out women, Jeremy is shy around the fairer gender, despite the fact that the beautiful cheerleader Candy has the hots for him. But Jeremy is strangely drawn to Darla Blake - a baritone sax player in the band and not the type of girl that usually leads to the sorts of dreams that Jeremy has been having about her.

Things start to get strange when Jeremy's dream about Darla is interrupted by a strange woman. Even weirder, the next day when out delivering groceries, Jeremy discovers this strange woman is the new delivery recipient on his grocery route. After her cat has scratched his finger, she first licks, then sucks on his finger and invites him back to her house that night at midnight ... I'm sure you can see where this is going. Needless to say, there is a crazed vampire killer with his bumbling assistant; a vampire "counselor" sent to help Jeremy adjust to his new life (played by the very talented Rene Aberjonois of "Deep Space Nine" fame) and, of course, a bevy of beautiful vampire women. It is also (as far as I can tell) the very first movie in which we see a very young Kathy Bates.

If you enjoy lighter vampire fare, this is definitely the movie for you. It is just a lot of fun, very 80s, great soundtrack. I hope you'll give this a chance, if you weren't already aware of it.

4.0 out of 5 stars 5 stars for the movie - but 1 for the DVD... March 25, 2010
Format:DVD
Hadn't seen this in years. Was surprised to find out that, if anything, I enjoyed it more now than back when it came out.

Filled with funny sight gags and a legitimate sense of breezy fun; this movie stands on it's own and isn't just recommended as a nostalgia piece. It's one of the better vampire comedies ever made (up there with "The Fearless Vampire Killers" and "Love at First Bite"). Recommended above other forays into the genre; such as "Once Bitten".

Unfortunately, this is a no-frills release so all you get here is the movie - and it looks like it was taken from a Laserdisk (or equivalent) master. Yeah - it's definitely better than watching the VHS - but not much.

5.0 out of 5 stars 80's Greatness October 10, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
We all remember the 80's as a time of strange yet great times. Look no further than a classic 80's vampire comedy. See Robert Sean Leonard in his young days before House in what may be one of his best comedic roles.

An average teen in high school meets a beautiful older woman that wants to meet him in the evening. He goes for it, looking forward to a night of passion only to find himself being bitten by a vampire only moments before a crazed slayer busts onto the scene. The boy then must go through the awkward change from mortal to vampire, all while dealing with the average high school anxiety that comes with being with a boy his age. Comic gold unfolds and you get to watch a boy become a man and a vampire very quickly.

This is a must have for any lover of the 80's.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't ask.... April 4, 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Everyone has a guilty pleasure. Mine happens to be this movie. Granted, the film is not Oscar-worthy material, but it is good for a laugh. When I watch this, I know that the joke is bad, I know that the story is cliched, and I know that the writing is pathetic. Yet I don't care. I still enjoy every viewing. The acting, as a matter of fact, is half-decent- it's just the script that bites (I couldn't resist the pun!). If you're looking for a movie that will make you laugh- even when you know you shouldn't- watch this. It'll give ya a smile, or at least a good eye roll.
