Prolific B-movie whiz Charles Band has boasted that for the budget of one James Cameron extravaganza he could "make movies forever." Despite the assembly-line sentiments, Band's films, produced under his Full Moon Entertainment banner and released directly to home video, show considerable
ambition, imagination and mood. Yet few Full Moon efforts really succeed. Too many fall apart at the script level, as if Band's stable of auteurs
worked from treatments instead of completed screenplays. Another disappointment is SUBSPECIES, promoted as the first vampire tale to be filmed on
location in the Transylvania region of Romania, right in Dracula's own backyard.
