Song of the Vampire (2001) from Johnny Web (Uncle Scoopy; Greg Wroblewski)

I think the "song" in the title is meant figuratively, meaning epic romance, as in "Chanson Roland" or "Song of Solomon". As far as I can see, the vampire exhibited no musical abilities. He didn't own an accordion or tap shoes, and never entered any karaoke contests.

It is also called Vampire Resurrection in its video release.


Denice Duff did an inexplicit love scene in which her nipples made very fleeting appearances, and the vampire was seen kissing her bum.

Basically, this story is like a Harlequin or Avon Romance brought to the screen in a low budget format, similar in tone and production quality to an episode of the TV soap opera "Dark Shadows", except expanded to 90 minutes with the characters' names changed. The vampire is a romantic kind of guy looking for his true love. She understands true love when she sees it, but her friends and family and ex-husband don't seem to approve of her dating the undead, and are always trying to drive a stake through her heart, or other body parts.

The People Vote ...


The meaning of the IMDb score: 7.5 usually indicates a level of excellence equivalent to about three and a half stars from the critics. 6.0 usually indicates lukewarm watchability, comparable to approximately two and a half stars from the critics. The fives are generally not worthwhile unless they are really your kind of material, equivalent to about a two star rating from the critics, or a C- from our system. Films rated below five are generally awful even if you like that kind of film - this score is roughly equivalent to one and a half stars from the critics or a D on our scale. (Possibly even less, depending on just how far below five the rating is.

My own guideline: A means the movie is so good it will appeal to you even if you hate the genre. B means the movie is not good enough to win you over if you hate the genre, but is good enough to do so if you have an open mind about this type of film. C means it will only appeal to genre addicts, and has no crossover appeal. (C+ means it has no crossover appeal, but will be considered excellent by genre fans, while C- indicates that it we found it to be a poor movie although genre addicts find it watchable). D means you'll hate it even if you like the genre. E means that you'll hate it even if you love the genre. F means that the film is not only unappealing across-the-board, but technically inept as well. Any film rated C- or better is recommended for fans of that type of film. Any film rated B- or better is recommended for just about anyone. We don't score films below C- that often, because we like movies and we think that most of them have at least a solid niche audience. Now that you know that, you should have serious reservations about any movie below C-.

Based on this description, this is a D. It's a grade-b production all the way, with nothing to make it stand out from other straight-to-vid offerings. Even the nudity is lame.
