Buffy The Vampire Slayer"Nigthwatch" Movie - Russian Vampires watch "Buffy vs Dracula"
Saturday 22 October 2005, by Webmaster
Russian Vampire film, "Nightwatch," features a clip from the fifth season premiere - Buffy Summers coming face-to-face with The Dark Master... bator.
While much of this Russian-language film seems influenced by "Blade" and the Jeunet/Caro films "Delicatessen" and "The City of Lost Children", this small nod to Buffy suggests the characters’ emotional pain and suffering was inspired by our favourite Vampire Slayer.
I can’t tell you what a surprise it was to see - the scene was dubbed in Russian and then subtitled in English. (And the film itself does some very creative things with subtitles - they are part of the film’s visual effects.)
"Nightwatch" is the first of a trilogy. Fox Searchlight are responsible for its eventual U.S. release.
