Thirst (1979)

★½☆☆ – (1979) – A descendant of Elizabeth Bathory attracts the attention of a cult that longs for her inclusion. Every now and again something related to horror will occur, but more often than not this is a drop-dead-boring vampire story. Too many silent pauses, not nearly enough involvement.

Thirst (2009)

★★½☆ – (2009) – A priest who contracts a disease is transfused with vampire blood and further complicates the life of a sad housewife. A strange blend of unique and played out ideas that manages to hold attention through 134-minutes. Tonal shifts are a problem, as one moment is deadly serious while the next is overly comical, which hurts the overall emotional impact.

Bloodspit

Bloodspit

★☆☆☆ – (2008) – A man in glasses tries to steal a crest ring from vampires in bad wigs. A pathetic concoction of pointless farting, pitiful gore, and plentiful cameltoes. Hasn’t a plot to speak of, while the cheap locations suggest a two-day shoot.

The Night Stalker

Night Stalker, The

★★½☆ – (1972) – A newspaper reporter puts his credibility and life on the line to prove a vampire exists. Doesn’t do anything not seen dozens of times before or since, but gets by on a likable lead and joyous character interactions. A short and brisk tale of familiarity made entertaining by humor.
