1991 Kingdom of the Vampire

Kingdom of the Vampire is one of many shot-on-video indie horror movies that director J.R. Bookwalter and Tempe Entertainment made during the 1980s and 1990s. If you intend to take this movie seriously like a John Carpenter flick....forget it! This is a Tempe Production. Tempe Movies are all about Black Humor, Gore, and Memorable Special Make-up effects.

The plot involves Jeff who works the night shift at a video rental store, then comes home to his domineering mother, who has the grisly habit of slaughtering neighborhood children to satisfy her insatiable vampire bloodlust. One day Jeff meets Nina, a girl who falls for Jeff's timid ways for some reason. This draws the ire of Mom and sets them all on a road to an inevitable collision.

The only good part of the film, Mom goes mad on Halloween night and munches on a handful of trick or treaters unlucky enough to call at her door. Fans of extremely low-budget horror fare might want to check it out, but everyone else who doesn't have that particular acquired taste would do better to steer clear of this one. Rated MA not for kids.
