This must be one of the ultimate British B-movies. It is magnificently hilariously camp, Donohoe is perfectly cast, Grant is his usual self and Capaldi looks great in a kilt.

I've started watching the film but became immediately bored as soon as Hugh Grant turned up. Never mind I thought I'll give it a chance but low and behold, Amanda Donohoe appeared all dressed in white. it does not take a genius to work out the rest the film so I gave up caring at this point. Please don't waste your time with even bothering with this film. Thank you.

I had forgotten how over the top and vile this funny this was. The acting is dreadful besides Donohue and the SFX are super dated but underneath it all there are glimpses of the legendery Ken Russell superb talent

A movie that really defies giving a rating. Why? Was it good? Well I was entertained. It was well directed. The plot is muddled but serviceable. And in pure Ken Russel fashion he can make women look sexy on camera. It's strange and if camp and you don't know the director you will most Likely think this is garbage.

Really silly but a lot of fun, and a good chance to see Peter Capaldi in an SF role. He does a great job as the skeptical scientist foil to Hugh Grant's latter-day dragon-slaying knight. And his bagpipe-playing snake/man charmer scene is priceless.

Not a very good movie, although it has some surreal and campy flourishes.

There's a lot of wasted potential here. Really, if they'd used their whole bum, they could have had a really creepy horror movie with some cheesy bits for garnish. Instead it was kind of a weird gorey soft core porno without any sex in places. The saving grace of this movie was the fact the actors were all good actors that would go on to make better movies.

This movie is amazing for anyone that enjoys old horror flicks that are so bad they are good.

Director Ken Russell Uses Bram Stoker's Final Novel As A Basis For His Wonderfully Weird Lair Of The White Worm.Despite The Cheesy Script And Effects The Cast And Plot Keeps This A Strong Flick.

Absolute madness. If Beetlejuice had been a British film it might look something like this. Though the acting and the abrasive editing nearly derail at times, the frenetic pace of the film keeps us swept up in the insanity. Unbelievably entertaining, the hallucinatory montages in particular.

A bit goofy, but I think it was supposed to be. Hhmmm, I really don't know how to rate this because I'm not sure I actually "get it" for once. Give it a shot.

Forgot what a hoot this was, with a boy-like Hugh Grant.

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.

Amanda Donohoe is a revelation in this classically bad sploitation film from the eighties!! Sexy as hell and the best actor in it! She puts everyone else to shame! Hugh Grant was soooo hot when he was young & some of the montage and phallic penetration symbology is genius! So bad it's good entertainment!

Could have been good. Is embarassing, instead. maybe just didnt age well? or maybe the fundamental of it, bram stoker or not, is just cheesy? i dont know. I really want to love it, but i can barely like it.
