Product Description

This value-priced collection includes all five films in the cult classic series about the evil vampire Radu, who returns to his ancestral Transylvania to obtain a life-giving bloodstone.

Subspecies

Three young students studying the folklore of Transylvania uncover an ancient clan of vampires ruled by the sadistic, monstrous Radu, who becomes obsessed with making them his fledglings.

Subspecies II: Bloodstone

Radu s fledgling, Michelle, flees from his castle with the holy relic the Bloodstone and struggles with her emerging bloodlust while hiding in the basement of a theater in Bucharest, waiting for her sister to arrive from the U.S. to help her.

Subspecies III: Bloodlust

Radu kidnaps Michelle back to the castle he shares with his sorceress mother and teaches her to master her vampire powers, sacrificing everything in his obsession for her, while Michelle s sister mounts an armed assault on his stronghold.

Subspecies IV: Bloodstorm

The vampire Radu returns to Bucharest in pursuit of his headstrong fledgling Michelle. He reclaims his underground stronghold from Ash, a powerful vampire who mingles with the world of mortals, while he devises a way into the secret clinic where Michelle is being held by the evil Doctor Niculescu.

Vampire Journals

A 19th-century vampire on a quest to destroy the vampires of his bloodline comes to modern-day Bucharest to battle the vampire master Ash the music lover using as his pawn the innocent soul of a beautiful concert pianist.

4.0 out of 5 stars One of Full Moon's Best March 6, 2012
Verified Purchase
Let me just begin by saying that I used to rent all of the Full Moon films during Full Moon's heyday, and I shall probably always have a soft spot for many of these films. It's a wonderful time to be a Full Moon fan as so much is available right now for so little. With that said, let's cut to the chase.

Who would enjoy these films? Anyone who enjoys low budget horror or low budget vampire flicks.

What are the production values like? These films were produced in Romania with the first one coming fairly soon after the fall of Communism. Make no mistake, these are not big budget productions, but they did manage to get quite a bit out of a limited budget due to lower costs, and you cannot beat the real backdrops and castles used no matter how much one might spend on sets. That being said, by today's standards, the special effects are more often like special defects.

What is the quality of the DVD like? Not much better than the VHS recordings I used to rent, but perfectly serviceable. These are low budget films from the 90s and were intended for straight to video. That being said, the quality is comparable to TV series on DVD from that time, which to be perfectly honest is about as good as one can expect.

How are the films themselves? Subspecies is a little slow paced, but part II and III are quite good, with IV starting to taper off again. Vampire Journals is rather slow paced, and is the weakest of the lot.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth every penny April 15, 2013
Verified Purchase
Any horror fan from the late 80's - early 90's has more than likely heard of Charles Band's Full Moon Films. The company has produced tons of films in the horror/sci fi genres. Here's the thing, they're great! Full Moon was the Hammer Films of my youth. They hold a special place in my little black heart.

The one series that stands out most to me is Ted Nicolaou's Subspecies. Thus far there are five films
Subspecies
Bloodstone: Subspecies II
Bloodlust: Subspecies III
Bloodstorm: Subspecies IV
and The Vampire Journals ties into them. There is rumors that a part 5 is in the works (Ted, if you read this, please say this is true. The fans desperately want it!)

The films follow the vampire Radu (Anders Hove) through the beautiful Romanian setting as he tries to capture, the equally beautiful, Michelle Morgan (played by Denice Duff).

This collection is well prices and worth every single penny! All five films on five discs complete with the behind the scenes segments on each. The transfer, picture, sound is all very well done. If you're like me and remember these gems, this is well worth the price. All of these films are cult classics. I should know... I'm one of the cultists!

Been wanting this for some time ever since watching Vampire Journals which is included in this set and the Epic one as well. Had to get both. Didn't think I would ever be able to get this rare gem, but I did. Yeah!

5.0 out of 5 stars All the Subspecies in one pack!!! March 19, 2013
Verified Purchase
I was turned on to this series of movies several years ago by a colleague of mine who knew I had an affinity for vampire flicks. At first I didn't think I would like this type of low-budget movie, but after viewing it the first time I became hooked and like it even better after watching it again. Anders Hove as Radu was both creepily repelent (reminiscent of Nosferatu) and strangly magnetic at the same time. Great movies, especially for the price!
