Synopsis

Vampire Journals
A half-mortal vampire uses an innocent pianist in his plot to slay the ruthless master bloodsucker who turned him into a monster. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

Subspecies 4: Bloodstorm
The undying vampire Radu Vladislas (Anders Hove) returns in this film, the fourth in the Subspecies series. Michelle Morgan (Denice Duff), a vampire in training under Radu's control, falls ill and is taken to a hospital, where a canny doctor (Mihai Dinvale) recognizes her symptoms and claims he can cure her vampirism. Michelle's treatments have a powerful effect on Radu as well, and he must find her and bring her back to the lair of the vampire leader Ash (Jonathon Morris) before she is taken from the ranks of the undead, spelling doom for Radu and his followers. Subspecies: The Awakening was also released under the title Subspecies 4: Bloodstorm. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

Subspecies
A disparate pair of vampiric brothers tussle for the possession of their father's powerful bloodstone in this violent horror outing that was shot on location in Transylvania. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

Bloodstone: Subspecies 2
Charles Band's Full Moon Productions followed up their vampire hit Subspecies by returning to Romania for two sequels. This second entry begins with the revival of master vampire Radu (Anders Hove) by his legions of homunculi (the "subspecies" of the title, neat stop-motion beasties who only appear in the opening scenes this time). The tiny slaves reunite Radu with his lopped-off head, enabling him to destroy his brother and rival Stefan. His first human victim, Michelle (Denise Duff), manages to escape -- but not before stealing the "bloodstone," a relic which holds the key to Radu's power. Michelle is also infected by Radu's bite, and he pursues her throughout Romania in an effort to enslave her and recapture the relic. Michelle's American sister Rebecca (Melanie Shatner) comes to her aid in Bucharest, accompanied by a historian (Michael Denish) who reveals the secret of the bloodstone. This sequel retains the menacing Gothic atmosphere of its predecessor, and Duff plays an attractive and interesting anti-heroine, but the overall mood is diminished by a weak script which leaves Radu with little to do until the climax, in which he is joined by a few surprise guests to complicate things for the imperiled ladies. Shot back-to-back with the third installment, Bloodlust: Subspecies III. ~ Cavett Binion, Rovi

Bloodlust: Subspecies III
First there was Subspecies (1991) a vampire flick actually filmed on location in Transylvania. This one concerned an attack by, and eventual subduing of, high-tech bloodsuckers. In Bloodstone: Subspecies 2 (1993) surviving vampire Radu (Anders Hove), in concert with his repulsive mother, decimates the Rumanian countryside. The story is further elaborated upon in Bloodlust 3: Subspecies (aka Bloodlust: Subspecies 3). This time, Radu goes after Michelle (Denice Duff), who's successfully thwarted him in the past. Michelle learns that Radu's plans go far beyond Transylvania-he must be stopped for good! ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
