DVD Review: 'Black Water Vampire'
Ready to head into the woods for a little fanged-tooth action? Then follow us as we check out the new to DVD horror outing "Black Water Vampire" out now from RLJ Home Entertainment. We review the rivers of water and blood below.
Title: "Black Water Vampire"
Cast: Andrea Monier, Danielle Lozeau, Anthony Fanelli
Director: Evan Tramel
Rating: Not Rated
Runtime: 82 minutes
Release Company: RLJ Home Entertainment
The Flick: "Black Water Vampire" actually starts off really well, with a doc filmmaking team shown researching a local serial killer. They ask around the town, visit his old stomping grounds and interview him in jail – creepy stuff. But then there are whispers that a monstrous vampire might have actually done the killings and our four naïve kids head deep into the woods with no sense of direction to find out. What follows is like a bad version of Blair Witch that eventually spirals into the ridiculous. It’s a shame to – great set up doesn’t always equal good payoff.
Best Feature: The Behind the Scenes is as so-so as the flick, but at least there’s some more detailed looks at the monster in full light! (He looks a little "Jeepers Creepers"-esk to me!)
Best Hidden Gem: The vampire is kinda cool – just needed to be in a different film!
Worth the Moola: Potential wasted doesn’t make for a fun night’s rental.
