Vampiress Review: "Subfaratu"

The Gist: A group of people on a cruise to Puerto Rico venture into the Bermuda Triangle and when their ship sinks end up being rescued by a Nazi War ship that has been missing since World War 2 and is carrying a vampire.

Female Vampire Factor: There is only one.  Not only is the vampire not actually revealed until the end of the movie (though you are always aware that it is there) but it really doesn't have much to do with the film overall.  When you finally do see the vampire it is revealed that it is a woman (Chelsea Tolle) that one of the Nazi's is feeding crew members to because of a relationship they had when she was alive.

Final Opinion: As mentioned the vampire is not really that important to the plot.  Most of the movie it's kept in a torpedo room locked up and the times it gets out you only see a shadow.  It isn't till it's final scene where it's revealed that it is indeed an attractive woman and not some Nosforatu like monster (which is what's hinted at the entire movie).

Otherwise this is a goofy comedy that is best described as Gilligan's Island meets Hogans Hero's.  The cruise castaways try to be heroic but are pretty much idiots and the Nazi's who still think it's the 1940's want to surrender themselves to the Americans because they want to go to New York and become Broadway actors.    Overall though it's a pretty entertaining comedy.  Not much from the vampire end of course so it gets a Vampire Beauty Rating of 2 out of 5.
