Fran Rubel Kuzui directs Kristy Swanson, Donald Sutherland and Paul Reubens in this teen horror comedy where a mallrat cheerleader discovers she is “the chosen one” – a super powered defender against a scourge of vampires.
Colourful and throwaway. It is difficult to see how this formed the basis of one of the finest TV shows ever but at least Swanson and Reubens give it their all. Works better as a Bill & Ted rip-off than a prototype.
