The Gist: A young man gets more than he bargains for when the girl he hits on just happens to be part of a group of traveling vampires who go from town to town killing everyone in their path and since she takes a liking to him decides to turn him.
Clarification: Basically this is Texas Chainsaw Massacre (and basically any other movie with a psychotic murdering family) but a blood sucking version. If there was one thing that bothered me about this film it's that vampirism is easily cured with a simple blood transfusion in it.
Selling Point: This film has been universally praised by critics as a top notch horror film.
Female Vampire Factor: Despite critic praise, as far as this site is concerned it is a huge let down much like the other major critically praised vampire film of the 80's "The Lost Boys". Once again you have a vampire film with one hot female who doesn't look sexy whatsoever and no fangs.

Outside of the fact that you do get to see her bite someone not much else to talk about in this category. The 2001 vampire film "The Forsaken" which is a lot like this at least has some T & A in between the killing so for that the film gets a Vampire Beauty Rating of 2 out of 5.
