This is one of the most criminally underrated vampire movies ever as far as I'm concerned,mostly because its not a typical by the numbers vampire flick...those happen to be my favorite types of vampire films. Amanda Donohoe was beautifully evil in this late 80s English classic as the worm worshiping,snakes and ladders playing,boy scout seducing vampire queen. This also happens to be my favorite Hugh Grant performance as the well to do hero of the film. I saw this creepy dark sexual horror movie at the tender age of six and a half and it scared the living crap out of me! Watching it years later in my early 20's I was almost shocked when I discovered the film still holds up 22 or 23 years later after it was made. All in all one of my favorite vampire movies and horror movies for that matter. Just the creepy English country side atmosphere has almost an American Werewolf in London feel to it, I find English horror films especially creepy because of how dark and gloomy the settings usually are. If British horror is your thing and you haven't yet seen this masterpiece I suggest you do yourself a favor and track this one down. Probably not the best movie to watch with someone on a first or second date but its a great watch during a weekend when you want something just down right creepy you haven't seen before.
