Remember how Radu fell off a castle, landed in a tree and burned up? Well, he was able to make it out alive just as everyone else from the last movie died in a car crash except for, of course, Michelle, who is saved by Ana, who takes her to the mysterious Dr. Nicolescu, who realizes that she’s a vampire.
While Dr. Nicolescu promises to cure her of her vampirism, the truth is that he’s also one of the undead and uses science to make himself immune to all of the negative parts of being a vampire. Now, he wants the Bloodstone.
Radu has traveled to Bucharest to claim the financial wealth one of his previous henchman Ash, who we met in Vampire Journals. Meanwhile, Ash’s own underling Serena wants the two vampires to kill one another. Yet when Radu comes for Michele and is attacked by the evil doctor, she’s the one who saves him.
Of course, the end of this all has Radu, Ana, Ash and Serena engaging in so much drama over who controls the Bloodstone and our favirite vampire dead again, his head chopped off and burning in the sun.
For more than twenty years, that’s all we saw of Radu. But now, thanks to Full Moon’s Deadly Ten project, Blood Rise will tell the story of five hundred years in the life of Radu. This prequel will show “Radu’s descent from a noble warrior for the Church to a depraved creature of the night. Stolen by crusaders on the night of his birth, he has no knowledge of his bloodline: his mother a demon; father a vampire.” Anders Hove and Denice Duff will come back and so will I, because as we all know, once I watch every film in a series, I have to watch everything that comes out after like some kind of obligation.
If you watch the Full Moon remix movie I, Vampire, you can see this movie in short form as “Spawn of Hell.” You also get to see all the flashbacks from the other films.
You can watch Subspecies 4: Bloodstorm on Tubi.
