As an avid fan of movies from the vampire genre, I wasimmediately drawn to this one based on the detailed review of AndrewWright of Amazon.com. However, to my surprise, the movie is not about vampires, but instead about the eternal struggle that men are confronted with--temptation. Bond portrays a minister "to-be" who comes from a long line of ministers. Struggling with the question as to whether there is more to life than the ministry, he visits his childhood friend, Hardison, who is a struggling "B" movie actor in New York. Little did he know that he would encounter a demon temptress named, you guessed it, Temptation, who, like the reviewer stated, is single-handedly destroying the men from a local "pick-up" joint.
What makes this movie interesting is also what makes it a little campy. The seductress plays on the main sexual deviations of men: each concluding with real, and relevant, endings to the perpetrators. The real storyline poses the question, "Can you resist Temptation in this life to do what God requires of you?" This is a question which is posed bluntly, and those who answer no, meet gruesome ends.
Overall, the storyline is good, the acting decent, and Cynthia Bond as the temptress is hot. This is overall a good movie and well worth viewing.

This movie is one of the best horror films. The plot is original, the actors believable, the sets very visual... even the soundtracks pretty good! The special effects are fair. The plot involves an attractive womans quest to destroy cheating men in general and in particular, a young man who hopes to become a minister. Alas, he is the last of his line. Whats her deal? Buy it and see! Several known performers in this film: Melba Moore, Hardison, TWO Jacksons (one famous Samuel, oh and Freddie) The climax of the film is intense, the ending is excellent. Bored with other horror films because they're all clones? Buy this one then.... it's a standout!

This is a very old movie but it made a deep impact on me because it's very spiritual. This movie teaches how temptation can be deadly. I always like movies that leave you thinking and this one definitely does that. It's sexual in some parts and in other parts it's exciting and filled with suspense. I love to show this movie to my friends because most of them have never seen it before. I would recommend watching this movie on a dark stormy night. :)

Very interesting and underrated vampire blaxplotation thriller from writer-director-producer-star James Bond III. What works in this movie is a good storyline with some sex and violence around, the movie was released by the popular independent studio known as "Troma" in theaters and has gained a small cult following. The acting is very good. The dialogue is good. And there's also some great cinematography.

This movie brings back the good old days for me. It ranks up there with Vamp. The main character was extremely cool. She wasn't overacting or cheesy like some blacksploitation moves were. She was smooth and it was the first and last film that I have seen her in. You can tell it was a fledglings first film, but he had a lot of rising new stars in it. It was well written, comical on some levels, and definitely not for young children. It taught a good lesson in my eyes. The lesson was , "All the glitters is not gold." I just love vampire movies. I always have, well before Twilight. This is the female version of Blackula and Cynthia Bond is excellent.

Samuel L Jackson, vampires, and Troma.

Need I say more?

This is a delightfully crazy vampire movie set in Brooklyn, with all the sex, blood, and tromatic splendor you would expect. The effects are very good in this movie, and I would consider it one of Troma's best.

This is my favorite all-black horror film from way back in the day. It has some of the most genuine performances from Kadeem Hardison and James Bond III. Their conversations are so intimate and real, and seem borne out of personal experience. I really respect a lot of the decisions JB3 made with this: he didn't let his wife get naked, though she's definitely attractive. There was some male nudity but I think it's been edited out of this--not that I like looking at man butt so I'm okay with that.

There are a few other edits to this: when Temptation slips the bisexual guy the demonic salami is out (ooh, that feels good, where did that come from?) and some of the kill scenes are edited. There are at least two extended blacked out spots. At first I thought the disc was bad (maybe it is), but I think that's where they edited out the scenes but left black empty space in its place.

It also sounds like the expletives have at times been nearly muted but that may be my imagination since the original audio was not the most pristine. Not that I enjoy hearing expletives--just saying. One scene definitely has the original audio--the hot mic or clipped audio during the seancy type scene.

I thought it was funny that the DVD packaging has Samuel L. Jackson's name plastered at the time as if he had a major role, when he was not an A-list actor at the time (his performance is still great, is small). Another funny point is that they put a one-liner quote from Shawn C. Phillips' on this 20-year old movie.

I usually care less about the quality of transfer and more about the story, but this is one DVD that could have been better. I guess the original footage must have been missing or damaged. Still it's a great story and a classic in my book. and worth owning.
