Reborn on Blu-ray, this pair of vintage direct-to-video vampire flicks still pack plenty of bite
Full Moon's catalogue of DTV horrors may be packed with guilty pleasures, but these initial entries in the company's 1990s vampire franchise are genuinely effective fright-flicks. Sadly, Subspecies' AVC encode is soft throughout, but things improve significantly with the sequel's sharp and detailed 1080p visuals (it also gets a 5.1 audio upgrade, unlike the first film). A handful of extras are shared across both discs, but they do get their own commentaries and archival Videozone promo featurettes.
