With all the pop culture focus on Stephanie Meyer’s vampires, it seems that Anne Rice’s far more scary, yet classy vamps have been forgotten, but maybe it is time to dig them back up, so to speak. In 1994, we were treated to a horror epic featuring the talents of Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise, Antonio Banderas, and a very young Kirsten Dunst. Interestingly, her performance as the perpetual child vampire, Claudia, was one of her best performances, but back to the story. Read more... (576 words, 185 images, estimated 2:18 mins reading time)
In a world where viral research and development has gone horribly wrong you have the creation of a new subspecies of humans called hemophage. The hemophages have been changed by the virus and they are extremely contagious. Just a drop of their blood or bodily fluids will make others just like them. They are also called vampires because of the light sensitivity and elongated teeth that they have after the change occurs. That is not the only thing that happens to them, they have more sensitive hearing, enhanced speed, able to withstand more damage, ability to heal quickly and some are able to see in total darkness. For all their gifts, though, they are set to expire with a very hard expiration date.

BloodRayne 2 has more blood and gore, more special powers, and more sexy girls. The sexy girls in this, you have to kill because they like to drink blood from humans.

While I like the Blade concept and the first film that Wesley Snipes did, this film seemed to go over the top with language, even more so then the second one. In the first film it worked well without all of the bad language but for some reason the film makes filled this one so full of it that when you are done watching it that is all you seem to remember. The film has a decent plot but all of the 4 letter words and gutter slang in this film makes it hard to watch at times. The language is not the only thing wrong with the film but some of the acting as well. What I am referring to is that of 2 of the main characters, Hannibal King and Danica Talos who have history with each other. I know they were going to big names to draw a crowd but PLEASE, why those two?!?! Read more... (773 words, 90 images, estimated 3:06 mins reading time)
