Movie Review: Vamperotica: Tales from the Bloodvault (2010)

by David Hayes

Vamperotica: Tales from the Bloodvault is another entry in the hugely successful comic book-to-film formula. Don't expect Spider-Man style effects or Road to Perdition type drama… but get ready for a fun little exercise in the large-breasted vampire genre. The title alone is undeniable proof of "what you see is what you get." Written and directed by Vamperotica comic creator, Kirk Lindo, Tales tells the, well, tale of b-movie producer Nicky, the money he owes to the mob and the one last epic he produces (in a single night no less) about a sexy and evil Vampire Queen (played by the always buxom Glori Anne Gilbert who could, if she concentrates really hard, breast feed an entire third world nation). Little does Nicky know that the Vampire Queen actress is a real vampire (and not a "natural" like Nicky thinks). The feature comes in at a lean 80 minutes.

The DVD is a nice reproduction in its native 4:3 ratio, but does suffer some sound glitches when the volume peeks. Special Features include a Behind the Scenes/Outtakes Featurette and chapter selection. The disc is self-produced, but does feature some nice artwork. The DVD is available at as well as a streaming version for you web-watchers.
