This movie is a classic Teen 'B' Movie. Played strictly for laughs, it has all you'd expect - ageing actors on the slide hoping to kick-start their careers and maybe gain Teen respect (as if!) - step forward Donald Sutherland.

Some of the supporting actors really cannot act out of a paper bag, and the vampires seem to have little 'motivation'.

A good fun movie, worth a few dollars for the laughs, probably better with a drink or two.

But the script was Joss Whedon's; this really was was the Birth of Buffy - and that makes it essential viewing for any serious fan, not to mention students of the vampyreverse.

There are, of course, similarities with the TV series, and there are significant differences. Whedon certainly learned from his mistakes - and, of course, had little control over how his story was interpreted - and the final form of the Buffyverse is much more sophisticated than the original.

Well worth a budget price. If not full price.
