Product Description

Blade: House of Chthon (DVD)

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.

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

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.

..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.

I love Blade, this is ok, but I like the Blade with Westley instead. But like I said it's okay. It gives you all the actions of the Westley, Blade, so if you liked that Blade, you will like this one also, just not as much. I brought it when I couldn't watch the whole thing on TV. Then after buying this I realized I didn't miss any of it. I had actual seen the whole episode.

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.

I really like the Blade TV series as short-lived as it was. When I saw this DVD I thought maybe I'd missed a movie that came out after the series, the information here on Amazon and on the DVD itself suggested this was a stand alone movie.

It is NOT. It is the pilot episodes for the series. So if you are getting the DVD of the series, don't get this.

Also be warned that these two episodes or pilot movie has some serious problems with how they are formatted and it appears to be on purpose. While I could get the other episodes to play on my computer and any of the DVD players in our house, the first two episodes, this "movie" would only play on certain machines. Very annoying.

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!
