Effects
This sequel surpasses the original installment in that it is more dynamic, better paced and more skillfully shot. The script still feels like a second draft from someone with the mind of a child, but it is structured better than 1991's Subspecies was. The special effects have slightly improved; the make-up as well, and the characters are more dynamic. The dialog isn’t as awkward and flows better.
The story picks up right after the events of Subspecies, with vampire Radu being resuscitated and Michelle, the lead character, fleeing to Bucharest with the Bloodstone. We know this won’t end well… The police play a significant part of the plot and prevent the film from going in all directions like it did the first time around. This procedural becomes the screenplay’s backbone.
The photography has vastly improved and so did the directing. Once again, the sets and landscapes win us over despite several pitfalls. This is a low budget movie with significant production value. Other than that, we’ve got decent actors doing what they can with stereotypical characters and an odd approach to nudity that isn’t sexy at all; an uncomfortable issue in the first film also. Oh well...
