"Vampire Journals" is part of the "Subspecies," movies which it's a spinoff. Ash is the master vampire in this movie there is no Radu. What makes this movie good is the location, it's beautiful. The acting is questionable but Jonathan Morris known for his role in the BBC series, 'Bread,' is perfect as the master vampire. David Gunn, was Zachary the vampire hunter, was a little too overly depressing and can get on the watchers nerves.
This is a guilty pleasure, not a good movie but there is worse out there. The setting which is on location is nice, in Romania. The movie is cheesy yet alluring. It though has an interesting plot, young pianist gets invited to play at Ash's club there is wants to turn her into a vampire and Zachary is on a mission to kill Ash. Just in some parts they aren't really good but for a low budget vampire film what does anyone accept.
It's a movie that is between 2.5 out of 3 stars, not perfect, not terrible either, just a very average movie. Simple plot, not great acting but the locations just make the movie. The best actor out of the movie is Jonathan Morris, who was one of the more veteran actors in the movie. Fans of his who also like vampire movies should check out the movie. The other "Subspecies" movies don't have such classic beauty as this spinoff. They seem darker than this movie. Though the first "Subspecies" movie is a lot than this movie. Definitely a series that has a cult following. So the scoring would be between 2.5 out of 3 stars.
