Some things are better left Undead
Radu’s small creatures have been able to save the old vampire from eternal death and he quickly takes advantage of the opportunity to kill off his brother Stefan, but he spares the life of the newly made vampire Michelle because he is starting to develop some feelings for the beautiful girl.
Michelle is struggling with her new life as a vampire and she ends up stealing the Bloodstone and heads out to Bucharest to try to locate her sister Becky for help. But even though she is running away, Radu is not letting her or the Bloodstone get away from him that easily.
The second and third Subspecies films were both shot back-to-back, again in Romania. It was a decision that was probably done due to saving money, but since both films also continue right after each other it also gave them the opportunity to have the same atmosphere in both films and also the same cast. The first thing that fans will notice in this is that the character of Michelle is now played by Denice Duff instead of Laura Mae Tate. I liked Tate more, but it’s not a change that brings the movie down that much anyway.
