Buffy the Vampire Slayer ★★

"I can't believe I'm in a graveyard with a strange man hunting for vampires on a school night."

While it does contain a modicum of the fun, action-packed camp that would eventually make the series so successful, the film never takes itself seriously nor develops its shallow characters enough to justify its campy crutch, settling for film with a strong concept but weak action and a tone that never quite feels right.
