Vampiress Review: "Bloodsucking Redneck Vampires"


The Gist: A Vampire heads to a backwoods town where her goal is to turn and control the population. 


Female Vampire Factor: First you have your main vampire mistress 

She's barely in the movie and most scenes with her just consist of her yelling at her familiar.  The majority of the vampirism in the film is done by the townspeople who turn each other.


Final Opinion:  So this movie is a comedy making fun of rednecks more than a vampire movie.  The vast majority of the film follows a family and the weird things they do in their spare time as they prepare for a festival and a french interior decorator sent by a magazine who is out of place spending time with them.  The vampire stuff happens as small gaps in between the main story about the family. 

The comedy aspect that actually works in the film is the fact that the backwoods population of this town aren't very smart so most end up dead within 24 hours of being turned. Usually by not knowing the rules of being a vampire and doing things that is known to kill vampires like coming out in daylight, using a tanning bed, working with sharp wood, eating garlic or taking a bath in holy water. 

I give it a Vampire Beauty Rating of 2 out of 5.  It's your standard ultra amateur low budget affair.  I honestly enjoyed everything that had nothing to do with the main family. The scenes with the family at least in my opinion were the least funny parts of the movie which unfortunately was where they were trying the most to be funny. The vampire death gags were way more entertaining than the fart and poop jokes that the family scenes were full of.
