Fangs Got It’s Friday: Una

Few things scream “Run away!” quite like a sequel that goes direct to video (or these days direct to DVD or streaming). Vampires: Los Muertos is one of those films, which was a standalone sequel to John Carpenter’s Vampires.

Arly Jover as Una in Vampires: Los Muertos

Perhaps this film’s biggest sin is that it recycled almost every idea from the first film and didn’t add much that was new, except for an entirely new cast. Even the main villain Una was working with the same goal as the villain of the first film: to find the Black Cross of Berziers which can grant a vampire the ability to walk in daylight. At one point, Una even manages this, something the big bad from the previous film failed to do.

If you’re thinking, that lady vampire looks really familiar, she should. You need only look to last week’s Fangs God It’s Friday for the answer. Arly Jover, who really enjoyed playing a vampire in Blade, signed on to play a bloodsucker once again for this film. Only this time, she got promoted to leader of the (vampire) pack.
