1996 - 77m.

Low-budget adapatation of the classic comic book character has Talisa Soto in the title role as a humane and sexy vampire who ventures from her home planet to Earth on the trail of evil bloodsucker Vlad (Roger Daltrey). When there she gets help from a top secret vampire hunting task force.

Director Jim Wynorski is oddly restrained in this effort that's loaded with tacky production values and is purely rooted in fantasy. So-so viewing if you're able to put your brain in check, though it suffers from a lame finale (that has Daltrey running around in a Dracula cape).

While Soto is nice to look at, despite her ugly loose-fitting latex costume, if not much of an actress. Nothing special.

Directed By: Jim Wynorski.
Written By: Gary Gerani.
