Vampiress Review: "Monster X"

The Gist: A collection of horror shorts being viewed by a couple at a haunted theater.

Female Vampire Factor: In one of the short films a man and his mistress are in bed when his wife comes home from a business trip early.
The mistress hides in the couples closet but the wife is on to them, breaks out a gun and shoots both.
As she drives out to the middle of nowhere to dump the bodies she notices bite marks on her husbands bodies.  The mistress was a vampire and she turned him. 
They then come after the now very afraid wife.  Instead of finishing her they decide to torture her by turning her then tying her to a tree to let the sun finish her off.
Unfortunately for the couple they end up having car trouble.  To make matters worse a bystander finds the wife and unties her. 
In the end the wife makes it home before the cheating husband and mistress prior to the sun rising.  The couple ends up burning and she gets her revenge.

Final Opinion:  The other stories in the series include a woman who is being stalked by a banshee after it kills her husband, A group of werewolves capturing a young girl who sneacked into a movie theater that ends up being the daughter of Satan, and a babysitter that ends up being eaten by the monsters that live under the child she's watchings bed.  They're all tied together as being films being played in the movie theater a couple is trying to escape from as they slowly realize it in itself is haunted.  

As far as the vampire portion of the movie goes I give it a Vampire Beauty Rating of 2 out of 5.  Very short film where them being vampires does more to set up the twist ending than it actually being about that.  As far as the entire film go it's pretty entertaining if you're into films like Tales from the Crypt and Tales from the Darkside as it's absolutely inspired by those films with the short horror movies inside a great horror movie format.
