Editorial Reviews

For 800 years, they ve fought to the death among the dark shadows of Thailand's exotic nights. Two armies of vampires. One, ruthless allies of the evil Niran, who delight in feasting on human blood. The other, loyal followers of the beautiful Song Neng, battling to end Niran's brutal reign of terror. Suddenly trapped in this eerie underworld are two American tourists: Amanda, kidnapped by Niran and turned into his blood slave; and Connor, her boyfriend, desperate to save her soul. Now faced with the ultimate sacrifice, Connor must either join the fight against the forces of darkness or risk losing Amanda forever in this taut, martial arts-packed tale of horror.

Customer Reviews

Anybody who loves vampires or martial arts will love this film.

It's a familiar story: boy loses girl to a gang of vampires, and he's determined to get her back.
Philip B. Yochim
It's slick, fast-moving, exciting, and has some good creepy moments.

A simple box case for three movies in their original packaging. No additional extras are provided or slimmer packaging, its just a convenient way to pick up three movies. These are John Carpenter's three Vampires movies. They are as follows:

Vampires: the original staring James Woods at his absolute best as a church-sanctioned vampire hunter who find himself as all that stand between humanity and total vampire domination. I have watched this one many times. A personal favorite.

Vampires Los Muertos: Jon Bon Jovi is a vampire hunter hired to go after a master vampire following in the footsteps of the baddie from the first film. Rewatchable but not as good as the first.

Vampires The Turning: A new vampire mythology with the action set in Thailand. An American tourist tries to save his girlfriend from a vampire and gets caught up in a plot to eliminate all vampires for good. Nifty plot and settings. A very visually pleasing film.

Three good and solid vampire films with Los Muertos being the weakest as it is the least original and lacks the star power of the first. A convenient way to pick up the whole set. Check it out.

It's too bad they picked such poor actors for this film. It could've been way better than it was. The movie starts out promising. Great lighting and atmosphere. Then we meet the buffoon that plays the hero. What a dolt. All he can think about is finding his girlfriend. His fake sincerity and one-track-mindedness are unconvincing. It's like those Chuck Norris movies you used to love to watch---they were alright as long as Chuck kept his mouth shut. When he opened his mouth you had to wince at the bad acting. That's how you feel watching this guy run around looking for his girlfriend. The plot seems thrown together to make the story move along. Almost zero character development. The fighting isn't too bad, but even that needs some help. I thought the villain was ok, but lacked the qualities to make you fear what he's going to do next. I liked the setting, but the execution of this movie is why it ended up direct-to-DVD. Avoid this one unless you like seeing Thailand, Thai fighting or are an avid vampire movie fan.

Format: DVD
If you like your vampires mixed with martial arts, you may enjoy VAMPIRES: THE TURNING. But it's derivative script, sloppy effects and lame acting result in a genre mix that doesn't quite gel. Colin Egglesfield plays the studly hero whose girlfriend is kidnapped by a band of vampires while vacationing in Thailand. Egglesfield encounters another group of "good" vampires who he solicits to help him find his woman. Patrick Bauchau is around as some kind of vampire bounty hunter who helps kill the vampires with crossbows. The movie's pace is not kinetic enough to generate any suspense; we've seen the fight sequences done much better in the Blade trilogy, and its climax is anti-climactic, and the ending muddled. Only for die hard vampire or martial arts fans.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I liked being able to purchase all three "Vampires" movies in a single collection. However, the description in Amazon's ad is wrong: the aspect ratio (format) for all three movies is NOT widescreen (1.85:1). The fact is, the formats are inconsistent:

Vampires (1) - 1.33:1 (4x3) "full screen" only.
Vampires (2): Los Muertos - both 1.33:1 "full screen" and 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen.
Vampires (3): The Turning - 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen only.

The big disappointment was not being able to watch the first movie (Vampires) in widescreen. Why is anyone still distributing movies in the old 1.33:1 format? As far as I can tell, Vampires has never been released to DVD in widescreen.

As for the second movie (Vampires: Los Muertos), it is one of those double-sided DVDs with the "full screen" version on one side and the widescreen version on the other. Yuck!

Format: DVD
In this third installment of the series we find ourselves following some American tourists in Thailand. One is kidnaped by some biker vampires while her boyfriend is unable to save her. But he does meet a mysterious character who kills one of the vampires and disappears. The boyfriend follows the stranger to a forbidding old house. He then tries to enlist the aid of the local police but gets no help. The mysterious stranger seems to be his only hope. He tracks him down and we find out what is going on.

The city has two types of vampires. The oldest do not drink human blood. They keep to animals. They do not like the second type although they accidentally created them. The second type revels in human blood and killing. They fully embrace their power. The first group is led by a woman who was the first vampire. There is a chance that she can break the curse that turned her into a vampire. If the curse is broken, all the vampires who sprang from her will become human again. The second type vampires do not want to be human again. The whole concept leads to some very interesting situations.

Other than the idea of bounty hunters going after vampires (and the use of a winch) there is no resemblance to the earlier films. This is based on a completely different mythology. Vampires are killed in different ways and turning into a vampire after being bitten is an act of will. So don't expect this to really be part of a series. By itself it is a very interesting take on the vampire legend and very stylistically handled. Sets, lighting, and atmosphere are really some of the stars of this film. In my opinion this is the second best of the three Vampires films (I preferred the edginess to the serenity). Check it out.

IS THIS A JOHN CARPENTER VAMPIRE FILM?
Sony pictures released this as a second sequel to John Carpenter's Vampires. Even though it is a sequel it still has NOTHING to do with the first two films story wise. John Carpenter sadly had nothing to do with this sequel.
