Vampirella: Oh dear, oh dear oh dear oh dear
2 September 2018 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

Vampirella for those not aware was a comic book that for its t&a levels became rather cult.

During the mid 90's there was an influx of superhero comic book adaptations and Vampirella was certainly an odd choice.

It tells the story of Ella (Vampirella) from the planet Drakulon (Or something to that effect) who is out to avenge her fathers death against the evil Vlad (Yeah really).

Soto is an awful actress, sided with The Who lead singer Roger Daltrey as the antagonist and a cameo appearance by the tall man himself Angus Scrimm. For those unfamiliar with Soto she played Kitana in the live action Mortal Kombat movies where she was equally dire.

Vampires in space, vampires with black cloaks with red inner lining, vampires that insist on hissing and showing their teeth and for the love of all 3000 gods they couldn't even get the iconic Vampirella outfit right.

Cringe inducing and I think 3 is being excessively flattering.

The Good:

Decent soundtrack

The Bad:

Cringe inducing fight scenes

Talisa Soto is a poor actress

The very definition of cheesy

Things I Learnt From This Movie:

Some comic book characters should be left on the pages

Soto should have transitioned into modelling
