Overview

The low-budget, direct-to-video sci-fi/horror fest Vampire Wars: Battle for the Universe opens in the year 2210. After draining the life from millions of human bodies, bloodsuckers not only worm their way across the face of the earth but sit poised on the edge of conquering the universe. To squash the problem for all time, intergalactic rulers order the assembly of V-SAN crews, or anti-vampire sanitation teams, to cruise the galaxy and stamp out the undead. The rough riders on the Hieronymus Unit - men and women prized for their brutality and their bull-by-the-horns, take no prisoners mindset - have among them Quintana (Natassia Malthe), a half-human, half-vampiress endowed with psychic powers that enable to foresee her prey; Captain Nicholas Churchill (Joe Lando), and second-in-command Damian Underwood (Dominic Zamprogna) - who, together, have enough force to meet the vampires on a level playing field. But they unknowingly careen head-first toward a nasty trap led by the vampire captain, Muco (Michael Ironside), which risks extinguishing the Hieronymus crew for eternity and giving the vamps limitless power.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Jeremy Wheeler
Well isn't this a piece of work -- Vampire Wars: Battle for the Universe not only wows with its corny title, but for its guts to mix numerous rip-off concepts into one bloody, low-budgeted sci-fi casserole that's high in cheese and low in originality. In what seems to have been a rejected TV pilot, this junker of a flick channels everything from Aliens to the Andromeda cable series as it creates its own team of heroes who travel space fighting clans of vampires named -- get this -- "Leatherfaces" and "Vorhees!" Those facts alone should tell viewers everything they need to know about the quality of this clunker. The good news is that the flick is filled with unintentional laughs that propel it far past most of its straight-to-DVD contemporaries; take for instance, the hilarious Guido Sarducci-like talking slug or the mind-sex scene, which would have been a cop-out if it weren't so outlandish. Then there's Michael Ironside, playing the crazy-fanged villain in such a gloriously over-the-top fashion that it's hard not to love him. Viewers who get a kick out of no-budgeted sci-fi trash will find lots to enjoy here, even if it clocks in around ten minutes longer than it should.
