Amazon.com

Blade: House of Chthon is the ghoulishly scary, feature-length premiere of cable channel Spike TV’s Blade: The Series. Based on the vampire-slaying, Marvel Comics hero originally played by Wesley Snipes in a theatrical film trilogy. Blade the Series stars Kirk "Sticky Fingaz" Jones as the sword-wielding hero who keeps his own bloodsucking tendencies in check through daily injections of a special serum. Blade: House of Chthon finds Blade trying to penetrate the nefarious plans of one Marcus Van Sciver (Neil Jackson), a wealthy and influential vampire developing a vaccine that will make his kind indestructible. Complicating matters is the arrival of Krista Starr (Jill Wagner), twin sister of a would-be vampire murdered by Marcus. Blade is forced to accommodate her need for revenge, until Marcus drags her into his own monstrous world. The action is gory but softer and clumsier than the feature films--everything looks a little rushed, as action shows often do on television. Jones is an acceptable replacement for Snipes, but it helps to have colorful performances by Jackson and Jessica Gower as Marcus’ right-hand vampira. --Tom Keogh

Product Description

The House of Chthon, an ancient evil sect of vampires, is growing stronger everyday. Led by the vampire overlord Marcus, their objective is to create a vaccine that will give rise to a new breed of super vampires, immune to vampire weaknesses. In order to stop them, Blade joins forces with the ruthless and beautiful Krista Starr, whose brother was slain by the vampires and who will go to incredible lengths to infiltrate the House of Chthon. With her help, Blade will do everything he can to win this war before it's too late.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable Escapism July 13, 2007
By Cleland
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Blade: the Series is currently playing on HDNet. I watched the first three episodes and was totally hooked. I downloaded the rest of the episodes from iTunes and watched them all over the space of about a week. I regret having missed the show when it was running on Spike. I think the show's creators did a really good job of translating the movies to television, and the show itself was a little more adult than most basic cable fare.

Unlike some of the other reviewers, I think the production values and acting in the show were just fine. While I initially had some problems adjusting to Kirk Jones as Blade, I think he improved a lot as the season wore on and was good at conveying Blade's reluctant caring and his gruff exterior. I was especially impressed with Jill Wagner, who plays Kirsta Starr, Blade's spy in the House of Chthon. Wagner was equally convincing wearing a evening gown or kicking butt in blue jeans and a t-shirt. In the first half of the two-hour pilot episode, Wagner wears blue jeans and carries a gun. About halfway through, she shows up at a party wearing a spectacular white dress. Wow. She's a gorgeous gal. Of the series regulars, only Jessica Gower, who plays one of the key vampires, struck me as a little wooden.

I do have some plot issues. Emily Hirst plays Charlotte, a pure-blood vampire, born a vampire instead of being turned like most of the others. Hirst is 13 or so, and her character is supposed to be 200. Do pure blood vampires grow old, maybe at a slower pace than humans? The other pure blood vampires shown in the series are all adults of different ages. I don't really understand the concept.

4.0 out of 5 stars Blade on TV did work... July 5, 2007
Format:DVD
..yet not enough! Blade the TV Series was actually pretty good. Now, I'm not a geek enough to look past bad production values for shows I really want to like. But to be honest, Blade wasn't all that bad! At times, it was really good! Sure, it wasn't the movies. But if you went into the TV show thinking that it was going to be the movies, then you deserve whatever disappointment you got. What Blade the TV Series did was take the world created in the movies and go into further details. The whole warring factions, the houses, the characters were really good! Sticky was a great Blade. And all the supporting characters were well done!

I liked the show. I was pissed it got canceled. It just needed a little more time and a little TLC. Obviously, Spike TV felt it needed more male viewers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable Series September 15, 2007
Format:DVD
I happened to catch the Blade marathon on Spike TV and I loved the show. It was fast-paced and I thought it did translate well. It wasn't the gore fest of the movies, but it was slick and adult. I was saddened to see the show go away, so I hope this signals a return of some sort. I still think Spike TV gave up on the show too quick.

5.0 out of 5 stars The reason the show was cancelled... September 16, 2007
Format:DVD
I really don't think the person who rated the show two stars seen very much of it, or had some sort of bias before even seeing it. You can't expect the show to be just like the movies. It just never happens that way. But that doesn't mean its automatically worse. No, Blade: The Series was made by the same person who made the movies, and he did just as well if not better on the series. The acting was great, the look was great, environment, everything. This show was easily better than most shows on the air.
The person who gave two stars stated that the show was cancelled due to bad reviews and fan dislike. Thats pretty much a total lie. The fans loved the show, and the only reason Spike cancelled it was because the sponsor companies were aiming their advertising at men and incidentally there was about as many women watching the show as men. Spike TV is dubbed a mens network, and so many women watching the show was quite unexpected, therefore the ads weren't geared for women.
All alround, this was a real good show. I can only hope the whole series comes out on DVD, and if we're lucky maybe a continuation!

3.0 out of 5 stars It's Iight: Sticky vs Wesley September 21, 2007
Format:DVD
Now before I get stoned to death by die hard fans of the comic book, Onyx/Sticky, etc for not givin' this production a strong 5...lemme go on and say that while I favor Wesley Snipes' performance in the Blade movie trilogy that I DO feel that Sticky succeeded in holdin' his own, not attempting to mimick Wesley, but give us Blade in a new light altogether. Overall, I was impressed by Sticky's performance as Blade, the storyline(and even the flashback footage from the 1st Blade film) gave it an authentic feel, I was feelin' the crime family approach to the vampire clan(Chthon), and I agree with many of the other reviews that it was cut off too soon...there was so much more potential left for the series to grow and become a classic out of this world. However, my review is short 2 stars, and this is just my opinion, because 2 areas were lacking in the series premiere: (1)Sticky vs Wesley: While Wesley Snipes, a martial artist in his own right, had Blade lookin' like a black Neo, my boy Sticky was lookin' like he was havin' a hard time shakin' off the underlings...no fault of his own, but the fight choreography could've been more convincing to make him look like the daywalker his character is supposed to be...(2)between the open and close, the progression tends to be quite drawn out and slow with some action/murder spurts here and there...which was about the only thing that caused the series premiere to stand out like a sore thumb in comparison/contrast to the movie trilogy.
Don't get me wrong...I agree that Sticky has the charisma to be Blade, but I feel that they didn't work with him as intensely as they did with Wesley.

It was a pretty good movie. Unfortunately, Wesley Snipes "rules" in this venue. I did get the movie as promised and in great shape. Thanks for the great service.
