A fair start. The remake should be much better with today's technology.

Talisa Soto is great in the title role, with Roger Daltrey hamming it up as Vlad. Bonus points for cameos by Forry Ackerman and John Landis. Gerry Gerani's script sets up for a sequel that never happened. A guilty pleasure.

when Roger Daltrey is your best actor you are in trouble. He is having a campy good time. The rest of the cast seems dazed and confused. Just a very odd (and not very good) movie.

Absolutely terrible film that is a B-movie in every sense, possibly lower. Everything in this film is hilariously bad, the acting (if you can call it that) is virtually pantomime. Soto as Vampirella doesn't even look the part clad in her watered down costume that clearly was made not to be as raunchy as the comicbook and doesn't even fit right!

Daltrey hams it up perfectly but the problem is you can tell he is actually trying! The ham is high but its merely bad performances from people who clearly act in fluff on a regular basis, hell its so lame even the actors can't talk properly with their vamp fangs in hehe.

Effects you say? what effects, there are no real effects here in any sense, what there is is so poor I won't even bother to comment. Not even the makeup looks good. In fact its fair to say that a lot of the film looks like its been made by fanboys on a very limited budget (in which case it would be OK), or you could say it looks like some kids halloween home movie. Watching Daltrey run around with his Walmart cape on, flapping it around with his god awful eye shadow and lipstick is quite a treat really.

This really is bottom of the barrel stuff, not too far off a modern 'Ed Wood' feature really. Watch for laughs only and keep an eye out for a surprise cameo by John Landis for some reason, why John why??.

After the notorious despot Vlad destroys her father along with the rest of the supreme council on their home planet Drakulon, Ella takes off across the stars to a small planet called Earth, where Vlad intends to enslave the inhabitants as a source of sustenance for his dark legions. With her powers amplified, Ella aims to put an end to Vlad before he can complete his sinister plan. Forrest J Ackerman's sexy heroine comes to life in the Roger Corman production of VAMPIRELLA, but a cheesy, low-budget one, at that. Years before the major studios were tossing millions of dollars at most comic book franchises, the independents managed to squeeze out a few schlocky entries of their own, including Full Moon's DOCTOR MORDRID (taken from a screen adaptation of the Doctor Strange comics), the shelved version of Corman's own FANTASTIC FOUR, and VAMPIRELLA. It is tough to say which is worse in this case, between the poorly choreographed action sequences, the ridiculous overacting, or the narrow-minded plot. If director Jim Wynorski's resume speaks towards anything, it is his tendency to gravitate towards cheap, hastily-made exploitation films, and this is certainly no exception. When she isn't speaking, fashion model Talisa Soto looks fine enough in costume, although the design is far less flattering than one might hope. A discussion into the differences between the comics and the film would be fruitless given the liberal use of the character, so suffice it to say that VAMPIRELLA is nothing more than B-movie fodder that can easily be avoided.

so cheesy and hilarious
an out-of-this-world comic book movie with bad acting, cheap special effects, and funny moments
'Vampirella' makes the jump from comic book to movie and the result is about average, it's not a great transition
still, Soto looks fine in that outer space get-up and even Vlad the villain looks like he just found his costume out of the conveinance store
it puts a whole new, comedic yet intergalactic spin on the vampire lore and I guess we all have to be open to that
I felt very cheated again by the ending, they seriously need to tie up some loose ends majorly
I did have fun watching this though, just because of the context it's made up of
vampires from space, yeah you heard right

This film offers nothing but Talisa Soto in skin tight latex.

Largely boring and never as sexy as it should be, this Jim Wynorski directed turkey manages to make Roger Daltrey as a scenery chewing vamp still feel kinda blah.

Pass, unless you're a completist or glutton from punishment.

Caught this on the Sci-Fi channel, and was instantly hooked. This film is bad, so bad that its funny. The special effects that make Windows Movie Makers look hi-tech, right down to the epic chase scene at the end (watching talisa soto trying to "run" in that costume is halarious). Seriously, you have to wonder if the film makers were having a laugh... and ive seen better acting on YouTube. But you have to watch it, just for the comedy value.

This movie is extremely disappointing. Very poor acting from Talisa Soto and also the character is not for her. I knew before watching the movie that it was bad, but I never imagined that it sucked that much.

Only and ONLY because Roger Daltrey is in it...

not bad for a low buget film Talisa played an awesome vampirella
July 6, 2009
I'm amazed Talisa Soto accepted this film after becoming known in Licence To Kill (her second film), she outshines everyone else and show's up Roger Daltrey who had many more parts under his belt at this stage. It's a bit cheesy, but wets my appetite for the comic that it came from.

Bad but A Bad must See, for Roger Daltry performing "Bleed on Me"

very well done from the comic

Entertaining, cute babes. Vampi fans may like too.

It's OK, I guess. Pretty women and Roger Daltrey in flick about the famous comic book hero Vampirella. Vampi fans may find it interesting.
½ April 26, 2008
Easily one of the worst films i have ever seen, with some of the worst acting and poorest special effects ever committed to celluloid. Even the skimpy costume that Soto wears is sub-standard, far from flattering her.

This was an awful movie. Nothing worked. What a horrible script... "Derrrr, want someone to drink? Oops! I mean some"thing" to drink? Sorry..."
