Vampiress Review: "Fist of the Vampire"

The Gist: A detective goes undercover in an illegal underground pit fighting ring just to find out it is run by a group of vampires.

Clarification:  Warning,  this is a pretty terrible film.   It does become slightly more watchable once it gets to modern times as the film starts with a family being murdered in the 1970's and in order to give it an "old footage" vibe uses a filter that makes it barely visible.  Otherwise you've got mostly cheesy special effects and obviously choreographed fight scenes to where it looks like you're watching a martial arts class for beginners doing drills with terribly performed dialogue in between (the cast consists of many minor league pro wrestlers and amateur mma fighters). The level of amateurish I'd give it is an action video game from the late 1990's. 

Selling Point: Seduction Cinema's Darian Cain is the best thing in the film.

Female Vampire Factor: As mentioned in the selling point Seduction Cinema vet Darian Cain is one of the main vampires in the film.
Her character doesn't stray too far away from her standard role basically being a horny vampire nympho.  Most of her screen time involves her getting naked or lusting after someone.  Sadly her character is barely utilized in the film with the head vampire getting most of the screen time.  She does in a night of sex accidentally turn two other girls but that is never revisited in the film.
I give this film a Vampire Beauty Rating of 2 out of 5. The story is fine and wraps up pretty nicely (no indy film A.D.D. here) it's just the presentation being the main drawback.
