You were expecting Crusher Joe, but it was me, Vampire Hunter D(io)!
Terrible meme humor aside, July is coming to a close and we’d be remiss if we didn’t offer up another quivering slab of Anime Fun Time. This time Tom and I take a look at Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust, a slick albeit strange theatrical film from 2000. In a movie filled with vampires, torso-wolves, mechanical horses, steampunk tanks, and ghost lasers, can a fun time be far behind? Click on the movie title or the DVD cover above to find out!
Ghost vampires are like the worst kind of vampire.

Sharpen up your katana, because Versus is the Greatest Movie EVER!
Click on the DVD cover or the title above to download our review of the film,
featuring Sean “Hollywood” Hunting and Daryl Surat of AnimeWorldOrder.
Review in a Nutshell: Frenetic, funny, and action-packed, Versus is a genre-bending action / horror / Yakuza picture with a mystic twist. It’s an independent movie with a small budget and a big heart.

Squeeze into your patent leather jumpsuit, because Planet of the Vampires is the Greatest Movie EVER!
Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film,
featuring Jeremy of Destroy All Podcasts DX.
Review in a Nutshell: A pulpy science fiction / horror film made on no budget whatsoever, Planet of the Vampires nevertheless succeeds because of Mario Bava’s invasive cinematography, the weird aesthetics, and the clever twist. The film conveys a strong sense of tension throughout.

Hold onto your precious essence, because Lifeforce is the Greatest Movie EVER!
Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring the UK’s own Ollie Bulmer.
Review in a Nutshell: Great special effects, droll British performances, and the lovely Mathilda May can’t prevent this troubled Golan / Globus production from being tugged in too many different directions at once. Is this the Greatest Movie EVER? Ollie and I disagree.

Break out the repeating crossbows, because Underworld: Rise of the Lycans is the Greatest Movie EVER!
Click on the movie poster or movie title above to download our review of the film.
Review in a Nutshell: Underworld: Rise of the Lycans is the best of the Underworld series, mostly because it riffs on Lord of the Rings rather than The Matrix. Also, this time the vampires finally get what’s coming to them.
This movie contains:

Hold onto your viscera, because Against the Dark is the Greatest Movie EVER!
Review in a Nutshell: A messy, straight-to-DVD action / horror movie, Against the Dark begs the question: Which is the real lumbering, undead monster? A vampire? Or Steven Seagal’s career?
