Vampiress Review: "The Witches Hammer"

The Gist: A genetically created vampire assassin is sent by a secret society to assassinate other vampires.

Clarification: Not exactly an original story considering the 1998 film "Razor Blade Smile" pretty much had the same story but a rated "R" version. The way the story plays out makes this film more along the lines of "Kill Bill" in which the main assassin spends the bulk of the film picking off targets one by one than any horror film.  

Selling Point: The film has a lot of action with very little slow down.
Female Vampire Factor:  The Vampire Assassin Rebecca is played by Claudia Coulter
Unlike Razor Blade Smile where the vampire assassin does do vampiric things like seducing and feeding on humans the one in this film only shows her fangs in anger and doesn't feed on anyone and mostly gets her blood from glasses (thew there is one dream sequence with an almost bite).

There are other female vamps in the film but with the exception of one very large woman who is targeted.
The rest get very little screen time and are mostly seen in flashbacks.
 I give the film a Vampire Beauty Rating of 3 out of 5.  I'd definitely choose the aforementioned Razor Blade Smile if I had to chose even though this film isn't terrible.
