“CHILDREN OF THE NIGHT” is one of those vampire films wherein mediocre performances, ridiculous dialogue, and low-budget effects, still can’t prevent the viewer from having a fun time. It also doesn’t hurt to have the beautiful Ami Dolenz as one of the stars. When Dolenz decides to take a midnight swim with her best friend,(but, of course!) the cross necklace she’s wearing falls off and awakens a vampire buried below!
For reasons, making no sense, a priest in a nearby town asks a teacher(Peter Deluise) to help solve the mysterious happenings there. In short time, most of the town has become vampires, and it’s up to the teacher and young beauty to save what’s left.
“CHILDREN OF THE NIGHT” never really puts one on the edge of the seat, but there are enough fun, silly moments, and a couple of scares, making this worth viewing.
COLUMBIA TRISTAR has presented the film in its full frame ratio. Unfortunately, the image has a lot of grain in it, and darker scenes lack the clarity we’ve grown to expect from higher quality COLUMBIA TRISTAR transfers. Fleshtones appear natural.
COLUMBIA TRISTAR has presented a Dolby Digital 2.0 track, but its fidelity is limited, and separation is barely noticeable. Dialogue is always intelligible and free from distortion.
Several trailers for other vampire films have been included.
