Vampiress Review: "B-negative"

The Gist: A loser named Barry as a way to get over his lack of ability to conceive children decides to try to join an order of vampires so he could live forever. 

Female Vampire Factor: The leader of the vampire faction is a woman they call pops.
The only other femme vamp is at the end of the film when Barry and his wife Kate are turned but no fangs, just an ending scene of them laying with the rest of the group. 

Final Opinion: I think this film was meant to be a comedy but it wasn't very funny at all.  In fact the character Barry is un-entertainingly obnoxious.  Instead of goofy the film is an hour and a half of this guy whining in every scene he's in.  In most movies a character like this would be the annoying best friend of the main character that is just limited to giving the main character stupid solutions to their problems but gets ignored which works because they're only seen in small doses.  With him being the main character this movie was extremely hard to watch since it makes the movie as a whole more annoying than entertaining.   "Jobless whining loser who doesn't appreciate his way out of his league wife and oversteps his boundaries with people he barely knows due to having the personality of an entitled 2 year old" doesn't make much of a movie protagonist.  In fact this is the kind of film you watch as a dare just to see if you can make it through to the end.  I give this film a Vampire Beauty Rating 1 out of 5 (only because the scale doesn't go lower).
