Blood Ties (1991)
Movie Review by The Gravedigger
10.30.12

Blood Ties (1991) This premiered as a television pilot on Fox Network and never metamorphosed into a series, probably because it was so self-effacing. Rather than in attempting to create a new type of vampire like Daughter of Darkness, or deal with the classical vampire, as in the 90's version of Dark Shadows, Blood Ties instead tries to deemphasize the vampire myth entirely, treating them simply as a minority with a nutritional problem. "We're not vampires," explains the main character, who has managed to integrate himself into human society, "We're Carpathians". This limp revelation basically drains all blood from the movie. Equally disappointing is the news that "Carpathians" can be killed with conventional weapons and are not immortal or even undead. They simply have long life spans (170 years), and can even roam about in teh sunlight. Needless to say, they have no fangs either. The only thing that really sets these Carpathians apart is their sexual appetite, which television is much more eager to show than violence. Michelle Johnson (Waxwork) plays the "bad" vampire girl very effectively. Although there is the climactic confrontation between the Carpathians that want to kill and drink blood and those that want to integrate with modern society (as in Anthony Hickox's Sundown: The Vampire in Retreat), it comes a little too late.
