Vampiress Review: Deadly Love

The Gist: A vampire photographer on the hunt falls in love with the investigator trying to solve the case of the deaths of those she's fed on.

Clarification:  While the Lifetime Network isn't known for making too many "guy friendly" movies they've actually done pretty well the few times they've attempted to delve into the vampire genre mainly because the all powerful vampires are usually women with the victims always being men with the only exception being the TV show "Blood Ties" and even that had ONE EPISODE which had a super hot, super power sexy female vampire who was practically unstoppable.  In this case they hide a love story as a horror film in time for Halloween.

Selling Point:  The vampire is Laurie Partridge from the Partridge Family.  That alone is worth the price of admission.
Susan Dey
Female Vampire Factor:  So as stated above the payoff here is that if you were a kid in the 70's you probably had the hots for Laurie Partridge and get to see a much older (This was made in 1995 but she's still cute) Susan Dey in knee high leather boots sporting fangs and putting the bite on random guys throughout this film.

While nothing too sexy (this is Lifetime and could care less about the male demographic after all) it's still one of those "things you want to see before you die" type things (Kind of like if Brittany Spears ever did a vampire flick).  Plot wise it's pretty much Dey's character "Rebecca" complaining about how lonely and desperate for companionship she is and her man servant constantly telling her to suck it up because she's a vampire (and rightfully so, if you're lonely then what's the man-servant for?).  I give the film a Vampire Beauty Rating of 3 out of 5 as in between whining and complaining she does hunt (sort of, this is Lifetime so lots of rapists everywhere to eat) so unlike some films at least she acts like a blood thirsty killer.
