Movie Review (Buffy The Vampire Slayer,1992):

I decided to whip out my old collection of VHS movies and watch Buffy The Vampire Slayer. That movie is the true definition of valley girl. The whole "Gag me with a spoon!" "Like no way! Totally!" the true 90's style lingo that will never go out of style. Man I sure miss the 90's! This is the movie that spawned the popular t.v. show titled "Buffy The Vampire Slayer" starring Sarah Michelle Gellar. Buffy (Kristy Swanson) is the type of girl that everyone wanted to be like in High School. Popular, beautiful, hott boyfriend, nice body, cheerleader captain and so on. Buffy and her friends head to the mall cause that's what valley girls do, they shop. That's where she meets Merrick (Donald Sutherland) when their all in the elevator and he stops the door to get a closer look at Buffy cause he knows who she was meant to be. He stops the door and Buffy calls out "Excuse me, rude much!" and her friends continue to call him a crazy homeless man as the elevator door closes. Okay, every one really need to watch what they say to people they don't even know. You say the wrong thing to the wrong person and you end up getting yourself shot
They all go to the movies after their shopping spree and they meet these two guys that of course don't like them since their punk rock dudes and punks don't get along with the preps. Well one of the punk guys Benny (David Arquette) heads off on his own and suddenly he gets jump by none other then a VAMPIRE. And after that you know what happens he gets turned into one. Merrick finds Buffy and tells her that he needs to talk to her in the cemetery but she's a little nervous about doing that. Oh yeah let's all go hang out with hobo's in the cemeteries, loads of fun! They get there and he tells her about how she is the chosen one and it's up to her to kill all the vampires to save the world. She freaks and doesn't want to believe it cause it's crazy but he tells her about how the chosen one always have dreams about being a warrior something on the line of that and she finally decides to be the vampire slayer cause she knew she was having those dreams.
She spends all her time training for the fight against the vampires that she doesn't talk to her friends anymore and they begin to ignore her and not hang out with her. Prom night comes along and she flips out at Merrick cause she's mad at her friends for ignoring her and all she wants to do is go to Europe, marry Jeffery Slater and die. Wow some ambitions you got girl! She's at the prom and finds out that her boyfriend broke up with her through her answering machine (true douche bag material) and hooks up with one of her dumb awkward friends. The other punk rock guy Pike (Luke Perry) tells Buffy that she needs to keep doing what she's doing and be the vampire slayer that she was born to be. After that the vampire attack hits the prom and starts biting all the students. Buffy slays the vampire king and saves the day and everyone is happy, well everyone that survived that is. :D That pretty much sums up the whole movie minus boring dream scenes and less 90's lingo, not the best vampire movie but still fun to watch and laugh at the acting and valley girl moments. Cause we've all met a valley girl at one point in our life, I swear their every where!

I give this movie 3 out of 5 Skulls
