Vulture's Eye (2004)

I watch a lot of bad movies.  I've become used to seeing films that were shot on video by amateur filmmakers using actors without much experience.  A lot of times a filmmaker with a good idea might not have the money or experience to complete a film to rival the visual quality of a big budget Hollywood film, but we can look past that and enjoy the film for it's story (and hopefully enjoy the hot naked chicks and gratuitous gore).  With that said, I almost couldn't make it through Vulture's Eye. This film borrows heavily from a little known book called Dracula by a guy named Bram Stoker.  The character names and parts of the story just seem a little too familiar. 

I do have to give some credit to the people involved in putting this thing together.  The film is not a complete disaster.  The acting isn't great, but it isn't terrible.  The gore could have been better, but they were on a budget, so I can look past that.  There is some nudity done with body doubles, but hey, at least there is some nudity.  

My biggest two problems were with the story itself and the editing.  I think this film may not have been so bad if it had been a film short of maybe twenty minutes.  There was probably about twenty minutes of story here, but the film dragged on for an agonizing hundred minutes.   There wasn't enough story for a hundred minutes and there wasn't enough good footage to edit together a film that long.

There is a silver lining: This film is available for sale in Best Buy.  Why is that a silver lining?  Because if Best Buy sells this film, there is no reason why they wouldn't sell your film!  I'm not even a filmmaker, but after watching this movie, I'm pretty sure that even I could make a movie equally worthy of shelf space in one of America's super stores!

Gore-o-meter rating: 2 out of 5 (it's not good gore, but at least there is gore)

Skin-o-meter: 1.5 out of 5 (body double boobs)
