The Comic Critic Reviews Bitten

The next time I get a movie recommendation from Netflix, I’m going to make sure that it’s not a straight-to-video production before I commit to watching it. I’m not saying that I dislike straight-to-video movies (most are crap); several of my friends have made straight-to-video movies (most are crap). I’m just saying that I need to do my due diligence so I know what I’m getting into. I had to stop watching Bitten five minutes in because my wife, a lover of vampire movies, couldn’t take watching another minute of it with me. I rescheduled it for a time when I could enjoy its, um, unique qualities all by myself. The part I liked most was the end of the movie. It had a lot of unmet potential. And I’m not talking about the script.
