Bloodstone: Subspecies II (1993)

Didn’t Radu die in the first Subspecies?

Well, yeah. But now his minions have simply reattached his head and taken the stake from out of his heart, allowing him to Hicks and Newt the hero of the first film, Stefan, killing him within moments of the film’s opening, sending heroine Michele to Bucharest with the titular Bloodstone in the hopes of getting help from her sister Becky.

Meanwhile, Radu’s mother — yes, known as Mummy — comes on the scene and tries to help him turn Michele to the side of the vampires, which leads directly into Bloodlust: Subspecies 3, which was shot at the same time as this film.

A rare sequel that is even better than the original, this starts strong and gets even better, with actually scary moments and a multi-layered antagonist. I don’t own the box set and action figure of Radu for nothing.

You can watch this on Tubi.

    • Agreed. This is Alien vs. Aliens with a sequel that matches — even exceeds — the original.

      Andres Hove makes this all work. I was shocked to learn he ended up in U.S. daytime television. Just a classic, Angus Scrimm thespin-turn as Radu. Totally unforgettable.
