If gothic birds in leather etc , vampires,blood & gore are your "bag", check this out! British filmaking hasn`t looked this good in years.
Be warned tho...the plot hooks you well & good , but then dumps you with the worst ending "since those that lived happily ever after".
At the right price, this is a good vampire film...just excuse the end.

...and Tudor Gates were a young savvied up screenwriter, this is the film he would have made. I've always been of the opinion that a film with real character will never age, even if it begins to look dated and low budget. After all, if this weren't true, why have all the Hammer films been so popular on DVD?
Firstly though, I would have to be honest, and say that even from the opening moments, this film looks as if it was filmed on the budget of a gnat's shoestring. But (and again, as with the Hammer oldies) the actors ham the roles up with so much relish that you can't help but get completely drawn in to it all. They all seem to enjoy it all so much that it just can't be make believe, can it? I mean, Lilith has a point from the word go - what would a real vampire do for a living today? She would do something she was good at of course - killing people discreetly and making money from it! Would she hang about in gothy clubs debating the finer points of Stoker and Le Fanu with fake fanged vampire wannabees? Of course she would! It would be fecking hilarious for her!
And that film that Hammer would have made - Sexy buxom chick? Check. Cleavage? Check. Token lesbian tendancies? Check. Gratuitous blood and violence? The good old 'sex = death' equation? Hammy bad guys and secret societies? Yes, all present and correct squire, as well as the period costume flashbacks, the Elstree mansions and (ooer missus) huge big guns used with little effect by the bad guys.
This is a movie that deserves to live a long and celebrated life, not as a budget project that gets by on novelty value but as an updated hommage to all that was scary, exciting and fun to a generation of kids who bribed their way into staying up late on a Friday and Saturday night and are now old enough to make their own movies.

Leaving aside the obviousness that this film's budget has been pretty much just combined pocket money of the director and the producer, this movie is outstandingly terrible in so many ways. The acting is the worst I've ever seen in my life (including all of those school plays I sat through), the directing managed to make its sex scenes laughable and its action scenes a farce, and the script is akin to something that I would expect from a twelve year old who thinks that he's far smarter than he really is.

And yet, that's the charm of Razor Blade Smile. Although it was never intended as such, it reminds me a great deal of A Comedy Of Errors. The astoundingly low quality of absolutely every aspect of the movie actually makes it really quite entertaining. If you just take it as mindless fun, you can sit back and enjoy it with your friends as you laugh and poke fun at every daft line, cheap special effect, dodgy bit of acting and at the entire premise. After all, it's a movie about a vampire hit woman dressed in a PVC suit who keeps her weapons in a coffin (with a name tag on top) - what more can I say?

To be honest, this one is a bit of a mixed bag.
The story is half decent, but pretty boring at times.
The acting is absolutely pathetic, the tree at the end of my street can act better than any of these so called actors.
But the real saving grace of the movie is the breasts, there are some good ones on view here boys! Methinks the female actors were chosen for their boobs rather than their talent, but hey, you can't have everything!

This is an amazing film - caputres the spirit of a vampire well, instead of moping about for all eternity, Lilith goes out and enjoys herself with a bit of action! If only the producers in Hollywood would produce something this good.

I never really understood the term 'so bad its good', until I saw this, because the acting is terrible, the effects are cheap and the story is over the top, but its very tongue-in-cheek which forgives the low buget, and you can tell that Jake West is really into these sort of films, the music is really good, and quite honestly, its really good fun. I really enjoyed watching it, if you are a goth who loves making fun of yourself and goth culture, then this is worth watching, i loved it.

Does exactly what it says on the tin. Ultra-lo-Fi vampire flick that makes up for its lack of budget with, well, Eileen Daley basically. The scene in the club with the opinionated Goth girl holding forth on the nature of vampires to a REAL (Unknown to her) vampire is hilarious! Watch this with your mates after a pint or two and see how much 'Underworld' ripped it off. 10/10

There are films out there that are so bad they become good. You can have a few friends over, stick the DVD in and have a laugh. Razor Blade Smile has this quality for about 15 minutes. Then it reaches the point of being so bad it's painful.

The film tells the story of a sexy vampire. We know she's sexy because she wears a rubber cat suit which shows a healthy dose of cleavage. Subtle. We know she's a vampire because she quite frequently unveils her teeth and hisses. I lost count of how many times she hissed in the film but we counted 12 hisses in the final 3 minutes. That's a lot of hisses, which is great as hissing is underrepresented in films.

The vampiric teeth are for some reason (probably health and safety) blunt and rounded. When the poor actress has these in she seems to find it difficult to close her mouth so will often walk around with her mouth gaping open or in a sort of "Oooo" look.

Oh look, I said "poor actress". Yes. This could have more than one meaning. Eileen Daly who plays the lead in this film is... well. She's not very good. She seems to be constantly talking in a forced whisper and really doesn't seem to feel comfortable in the role. Her previous acting credits include Striptacular and my personal favourite, Electric Blue: Suburban Wives 8.

Ultimately it all feels like an adult movie. But one where all the interesting bits have been removed. You're constantly expecting people to tear each other's clothes off but aside from two rather awkward sex scenes it never materialises.

None of the other actors come across much better than the lead. It's a rag tag mix of amateur dramatics and people who've played "Shoplifter 2" in the Bill.
