I was 11 years old when this came out in 1993 and not much older when I first watched this movie. I watched this movie recorded off the TV on VHS many times in the days before DVD. If I were so inclined, I could probably dig up that old VHS from the shelf of old VHS in my living room and plug in an old VCR and relive those late night Taco Bell commercials breaking the movie tension. TACO SUNDAYYYY AT TACO BELLLLL!!
It’s been a minute since I last watched this movie. I don’t have strong memories of it, but it is all so familiar. It’s a great movie. I say that with all sincerity. It’s great. As I watch, I wonder if certain aspects were ingrained in me. I remember thinking vampire Michelle was the loveliest woman I’d ever seen in a movie. Radu was oddly appealing despite his inability to take leave me the fuck alone for an answer. Something about all the blood dripping everywhere. Michelle goes into survival mode and even saves her sister all while trying to come to terms with her new life as a vampire. And just when it seems like they get a happy ending, something happens that turns this neat little package into a mega cliffhanger. I guess I have to watch the rest of the series 🤷🏻♀️
