Stars:
Lucas Grabeel as Dylan Knight

Plot:
Haunted by bizarre dreams about Goth rocker Trey Sylvania (DREW SEELEY), and experiencing a growing lust for blood, Dylan (LUCAS GRABEEL), a not-so-average teenager finds himself transforming into a vampire! It all started when he was bitten by a voracious fanged exchange student, and it's a process he is desperate to stop - but how? His demented dentist can't do anything about Dylan's aching teeth and emerging fangs, and the anti-bloodsucking pills he gets from his para-psychologist just give him a rash. Dylan is terrified and he doesn't know what to do - especially about his beautiful girlfriend Sara (ADRIAN SLADE).

Extras:


My Thoughts:

This is another one I watched on Amazon Prime. It was entertaining enough to keep my attention through-out the film. But I would say really not much more then average. Some characters I liked... but others was just plain annoying. I may add it to my collection at some point if I find it very cheap or for free. But it really isn't something I would go searching for.

Pánico en el Transiberiano, a review by Danae Cassandra





Year of Release: 1972
Directed By:Starring: Christopher Lee, Peter Cushing, Telly Savalas, Alberto de Mendoza, Silvia Tortosa
Genre: Horror

Overview:
The '70s horror classic returns like you've never seen it before! Screen legends Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing star as rival turn-of-the-century anthropologists transporting a frozen 'missing link' aboard the Trans-Siberian Express. But when the prehistoric creature thaws and escapes, it unleashes a brain-scarfing spree that turns its victims into the eye-bleeding undead. Can the crafty colleagues stop this two million year old monster, hordes of zombie passengers and a psychotic Cossack officer (Telly Savalas) before terror goes off the rails? Silvia Tortosa (When The Screaming StopsPSYCHOMANIA, now featuring explosive new Extras and a stunning HD transfer from vault elements recently unearthed in a Mongolian film depot!

My Thoughts:
This is a really good little film.  Of course, it doesn't hurt that it has a lot of good elements to put it together, either.  It has two superb actors - Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing - as the leads.  It has Telly Savalas in a cameo.  It has two beautiful ladies to threaten.  It has an interesting setting - a train crossing Siberia, and a reasonably tight and action-packed script.  Oh, and an interesting monster.  One mustn't forget the monster.

Are there a few plot holes?  Sure, but you really overlook them while you're watching.  The film has a great, creepy atmosphere and some genuinely tense moments.   Lee and Cushing make a great team of dapper, distinguished English gentlemen.  Lee looks so young and handsome here, even if he's actually in his late 40's and his character is an arrogant prig.  Cushing is the more charming here.  And Savalas chews up the scenery delightfully as a power-mad Cossack.  It's almost a shame he comes in so late in the film, but the character would be too much if given more screen time. 

The other thing that helps make the film good is that the monster is very mysterious at the beginning, but as the film progresses you learn more about the creature and also eventually you get clued in toward it's motive and goal.  Yes, it does have them, and it makes the creature somewhat sympathetic.  I at least had some understanding and sympathy for it.

The gore is minimal compared to today's films, so despite it's R rating I'd feel comfortable showing this for teens.  Therefore, recommended for most anyone who's a fan of older horror films.

Bechdel Test: Fail

Overall:  3.75/5

Pete's Pilots, a review by addicted2dvd



Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Now you can own the entire first season of BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER.

All 12 classic episodes are available for the first time in this exclusive 3-disc collector's edition. From "Welcome to the Hellmouth," "The Harvest" and "Angel" to "Nightmares," "Out of Mind, Out of Sight" and "Prophecy Girl," these Season One episodes are a must for every true Buffy fan.


Welcome to the Hellmouth
Buffy Summers, a high school sophomore, transfers to Sunnydale High. There she meets her new "Watcher" and learns she cannot escape her true destiny.

The Harvest
A stranger named Angel tells Buffy that if she does not stop The Harvest, the Hellmouth will open and The Master will roam free.

My Thoughts:
This is one of my top favorite series of all time. And this 2-part episode does a great job of introducing all the characters. Not saying to much here as I believe most people know this series. Will just say I highly recommend it.
