The special effects are great, the atmosphere is super, and the drama is intelligent. There is also plenty of gore.

Audience Reviews for Subspecies

Great friggen' horror film from my heroes at Full Moon Entertainment, who in my opinion, were doing some of the best horror movies of the late 80's and on through the 90's.

Super Reviewer

A different kind of vampire movie -- one good, one bad. Filmed in Transylvania.

Cindy I

Super Reviewer

B-side vampire movie with a realistic setting, dark atmosphere and one of the best makeup details I've seen in a film. Been wanting to see this for a long time and had the pleasure of not only buying the trilogy on blu ray at HorrorHound, but met the star of the film, Anders Hove, who gives a creepy seductive performance as Radu the antagonist who fights his half brother for the sacred bloodstone so he could be rightful heir to their family throne. The blu ray version really stands out with quality sound and a clean colorful remaster of the picture. I will enjoy this movie for a long time for the overall experience of watching the film and meeting all those involved with its inception.
