Good movie, but sixty bucks???!!!,
This review is from: Vampirella [VHS] (VHS Tape)If you like vampires you might like this movie. If you like morose, moody vampires verbosely brooding over deep, dark gothic secrets that they long to share with mortals, who would never understand them, then this movie probably isn't for you. If you like science fiction action/adventure, where a gorgeous female in a shiny red costume saves the universe from malicious destruction, then this is your kind of movie.
Alright, so Vlad only wants to destroy one planet. We've still got a good action/adventure story where the female is more than just a doll. The quality is much superiour to what one might expect, although the acting is a little uneven in places, the suspense does not build up as much as the concept would promise, and the special effects are a little on the economical side (better than BBC but nowhere near Babylon 5 standards.) The storyline is great, the dialog is well-written, and the actors are convincing most of the time.
This is definitely a science fiction movie, not a horror film. The other reviews show that people either like it or hate it. I'm one of those who really liked this movie, despite it's obvious flaws.
