“Interesting to see Charles Band's cheap-fast-cool aesthetic applied to a stately, old-school vampire movie.” - Joe, LETTERBOXD
Adrift in the unholy hills of Transylvania, two American coeds find themselves the objects of vicious vampire Radu’s desire. The only hurdle to his hunger is his own brother, a benevolent bloodsucker who’s vowed to defend mankind from Radu’s predatory powers. Their battle will rend reality asunder . . . especially after Radu invokes an army of stop-motion mini-Mephistos to do his bastardly bidding. The first of five entrail-encrusted entries — and the first American film ever shot in Romania! — SUBSPECIES is a garishly gothic experience in undead demonics. Wait, did we mention it also features PHANTASM’S Angus Scrimm in a giant Beethoven wig? Yeah, that too.
