The movie "Bathory : The Countess of Blood" told the story of the countess during her time. This story focuses on her daughter in present day, vampires and is more myth based. It was enjoyable and Irena Violet was wonderful. It is well worth a look if you enjoy this type of film.

Okay. It was late at night and I couldn't sleep. I've always been a Dracula fan so I thought "what the heck". It is a total "B" movie. Maybe it was because it was late or maybe I was just too lazy to push the return button that gets me back to the menu. Or maybe I just didn't want to surf for something, anything that would have been better than this movie. This was a complete and utter Dracula debacle. I'm going to stand with the notion that Christopher Lambert was forced to take this roll:).

This movie intertwined the story of the Countess Bathory, vampires. Three young Americans are researching the legend of Countess Bathory. Whilst on this search the meet a beautiful stranger named Elisabeth. Things are not what they appear to be with the beautiful stranger. It's an interesting take on vampires, and while its clearly a direct to video title. It's not all that bad. Take the movie as it is.. a a horror movie, and enjoy it.

"Metamorphosis" has almost no redeeming qualities, apart from the beautiful and captivating Irena A. Hoffman, a former model. Hoffman has been in more than a dozen films since 2004 and guest starred on several TV series

The film's star is Christopher Lambert (1957), best known for his "Highlander" films (1986, 1991, 1994, 2000). Though born on Long Island, he moved to Switzerland at the age of 2. His first few films were French, and "Greystoke" (1984) was his first English film. He made a number of other English speaking films (e.g., "The Sicilian" in 1987, "Mortal Combat" in 1995) but most of his subsequent work has been foreign, primarily French. He won the Cesar Award (French Oscar) in 1986 for "Subway", a Luc Besson film. Though he is the "star" of the film, Lambert barely gets any screen time for the first half, and what time he does spend in the second half he probably wishes he hadn't.

For a vampire film there isn't all that much blood and not that much Vampire "lore". The best part of the film is the lovely landscape in Hungary.

This was the last film for writer/director/producer Jeno Hodi.

Bottom line - considering how many excellent Vampire films are out there, there is little here to recommend it.

This is one of the worst vampire films I have ever seen. The dialogue was so cheesy I practically winced. Some of it didn't make sense. WHY did Christopher Lambert's character (who was British) call Elizabeth Bathory's daughter a tourist while they were IN Hungary? WHY are people able to bleed IN purgatory? What was with the vampire hunter?

The main character is what many call a Gary Stu. A Gary Stu is the male equivalent of the Mary Sue, a very flat, two dimensional protagonist designed to be an ideal that the audience members are supposed to relate to. He's the sort of character that is frowned upon in role playing games for being uncreative and contrived.

The more you think about it, the less sense the film made and it over explained simple things like the term clinically dead. This was just bad. Bad, bad, bad, bad, bad. This felt like a Syfy original movie, that's how bad it was. I can't even put into words how much I disliked this movie. On the list of bad vampire movies this goes up there with the Twilight films, Dracula 3000, Queen of the damned and the Fright Night remake, just bad.

If you want an interesting vampire romance just go watch Bram Stoker's Dracula. This was awful.

The plot of Metamorphosis: Okay, so it begins with the sad, misunderstood ...Elizabeth Bathory (yes, the woman who bathed in virgin blood) as her daughter (also named Elizabeth) is ripped from her arms. He comes off as a cheesy villain. "Mwahaha! You'll never see your child again! Mwaaha!" And flings her over a horse (obviously a doll at this point because her head bobs up and down way too fast as they gallop away). Apparently the daughter grew up, cursed God for what became of her family and became a vampire.

Cut to modern day Hungary.

Poor movie. The story was okay but the actors weren't very good. Quality of the film was horrible and everything about this movie could of been improved. It seemed like a rushed movie. Not much story build up on the characters.

Metamorphosis is about what you would expect from most straight-to-DVD horror flicks. The film follows the story of a young American writer researching a centuries-old legend in Europe, and the mysterious stranger that his friends pick up along the way.

Pros: The film was shot primarily in Hungary, and the setting is amazing. Terrific forest and mountain shots, and scenes shot in real castles and monasteries add to the authentic vibe of the film. The cast features a wide variety of experienced Hungarian actors, and a mix of others from Germany, America and the UK. While not particularly talented, the amazingly beautiful Romanian actress Irena Hoffman makes a welcome addition as the mysterious woman the Americans encounter.

Cons: Low production value, weak CGI effects, and sub-par writing. Kudos to director Jenö Hodi (who makes a cameo) for not wanting to make a "typical" vampire flick, but Metamorphosis comes off like a bad soap opera. The film's focus is that vampires have feelings too, but it's displayed through overdramatic dialogue. Christopher Lambert of Highlander fame plays a vampire that is so chatty that it becomes annoying after a while. The jokes in the film are dry, and there's an awful lot of overracting.

There's very little blood in the film, and nuances like Deja Vu moments are never really explained. There's a twist by the film's conclusion, but even that doesn't fully answer the viewer's questions about the story.

The DVD extras include a featurette on the making of the film, with interviews of the main cast. There is also a video for "Route 66", by Hungarian rapper Döglégy (Zolee Ganxsta) who appears in the film as Igor the Russian traveler.

The film had some interesting elements that made it different from other horror movies, but overall I just wasn't impressed with this vampire romance film. Rent this one from Redbox and form your own opinion before you decide to buy the DVD.
