Blade: The Series (2006)
Movie Review by The Gravedigger

Blade: The Series (2006) The first disc of the four is THE HOUSE OF CTHON, which was released last year. The 11 episodes follow this story directly. The evil vampire cop has escaped and wants to join one of the vampire clans, there's a plan by the evil Marcus Van Sciver (Neil Jackson) to destroy the natural vampires with a virus, and we get to see flashbacks of Blade as a child, which I think are the best sequences in this entire series. Trouble is from Chase (Jessica Gower), Van Sciver's girlfriend, who is always jealous and seems to be plotting against him half the time.

The part with Krista (Jill Wagner) as a newly turned vampire trying to fight off the blood lust gets tiresome after a few episodes but gets interesting once she starts having genuine feelings for Van Sciver. She's connected to him, as he's the one who turned her into a vampire, and his blood flows in her veins. A part of this is that she is able to see into his past and the person he was before he was a bloodsucker. Trouble arises from Chase (Jessica Gower), Van Sciver's spurned girlfriend, who seems to be plotting against him half the time and is jealous of Krista.

The best episode of the series is the last, in which Van Sciver manages to get his revenge on the Pureblood vampire who raped and killed his wife before his eyes a hundred years before.

BLADE (Sticky Fingaz) however, remains one-note, which he's supposed to be, a killing machine, and those flashbacks to his childhood, when he was getting the urge to kill, add another dimension to his character, as it's such a contrast to his current persona. Again, Wesley Snipes is far better than "Sticky Fingaz" in the role.

Another problem is that this series is set in Detroit but the city portrayed doesn't look like Detroit at all (probably because it was shot in Toronto) and as someone who lives about an hour away from the Motor City it looks goofy seeing these characters in this impostor city.

It's too bad this series was cancelled as it was just getting up to speed with interesting story lines and situations.
