This was simply an excellently done movie, for it's genre. We're not talking Citizen Kane or Bridge over the River Kwai, of course- but it's not trying to be that. It's just fun, and incredibly witty. One of the best comedies I've ever seen, revealing of the drive for materialism verses things that really matter, full of Christological and soteriological allegory. Later on there was a TV series by the same name, that took the kernel of the idea and twisted it, taking something humorous and making it dark, new-agey, and frankly weird. This original movie has little in it to offend, unless, of course, you're a vampire. It's very vampirist.
Buffy cares only for herself, learning the values of the American Me Generation. Until she learns that she has been chosen for something far greater, and that there are things of far more import in this world than wearing what is retro, and avoiding what is five minutes ago. While hopefully the viewer finds humor throughout the movie, they also can be challenged to reevaluate who they are, and what they consider life to be. The unexamined life is not worth living- but neither is the unlived life. Does not the best of humor point to something beyond? Does it not call us to be something more than we are? This movie does that.
The writing is excellent, the acting good- especially by Donald Sutherland and Peewee Herman. If you rent it, you'll enjoy it. I'd stake my life on it.

I have had this movie for years and just watched it again last Sunday. I think its funny and campy the way it is supposed to be. Sure it doesn't compare to the TV show but its still fun. I love Kristy Swanson. She was the perfect answer to the 80's backlash. She wouldn't have worked in the more serious TV show (besides I could never live without Sarah Michelle's portrayal) but I adore her none the less. And surprisngly, Buffy and Pike (Luke Perry) were wonderful together. I want to see more Buffy stuff. BUFFY FOREVER!

So as part of My Year of Buffy mission, my completest OCD Geek gene kicked in right away and the power of Joss compelled me to start at the beginning. Or shortly after the beginning. I actually saw this after finishing Buffy season one.

So yes, we now travel way back to the much reviled original movie, which I have not seen since it was in the theatre in 1992. Thanks to the magic of Amazon, a cheap dvd was acquired, and away I went. Now onto my SPOILER FILLED look at this movie.

And wow, this movie sucked. Like, sucked so hard it has its own event horizon. Redeeming qualities are virtually non-existent. I have to wonder why the studio grinded Joss’s vision up, all in order to produce this monstrosity. My guess is that the idiot executives responsible moved on years later and made the Green Lantern film.

The basic plot of Buffy The Vampire Slayer The Movie is that young woman exist all through history and that they are trained by old guys called Watchers, all in order to fight the evil undead. In the present day of 1992, which really feels like some bad 1980′s music video, Buffy is a massively annoying valley girl played by the equally annoying Kristy Swanson. She meets at the mall a creepy looking old man in a flasher trench coat who looks like Donald Sutherland slumming. Into this already crazy mess, Buffy also meets a loser slacker Pike, played by the sleepwalking Luke Perry of 90210 fame. Rutger Hauer and Paul Reubens show up as the villains, namely vampire master and lackey, and cemented my hatred of both actors. Eventually Sutherland convinces Buffy that she is the Slayer and begins a training montage, which culminates with the two bonding, all to evoke awws from us.

If you have a pesky mole you may be marked for destiny.

Buffy (Kristy Swanson) is the end of a long line of failed vampire slayers. Merrick (Donald Sutherland) must teach her how to survive and do her duty. First he has a problem of convincing her that he is just not a weird old man.

Starts off slowly; soon we have a stake in the movie.

For people interested in technology more than the movie Blu-ray may add a little color to the movie but not one new gesture of word. Now if they had 3D with a blood squirter.

Don't tread on Buffy. She may look like your average valley girl, mallrat, gum chewing, fashion expert. But she's got what it takes to slay vampires like nobody's business. And now that her guide Merrick has finally found her- it's time to do some real damage. Because right as she speaks, and speaks, and speaks some more, the evil Lothos and his right hand henchman Pee Wee Herman (I couldn't resist) are massing an army of undead bloodsuckers to... I don't know- bite people and wreak havoc.
The plot is a little thin, and sad, but the actors do a totally rad job of not depressing the audience just because they're too damn old to be in High School. The effects are mostly physical and a bit stiffly choreographed considering that 90% of all the vamps come off as disposable stunt-persons. That's my one major beef with the movie. That the baddies aren't very convincing. That Buffy's ex-best friend and ex-boyfriend can make out in a parked car, with the top down, less than 6 feet away from snarling, clawing vampires on either side of the lot fence, and not even notice... Yeah, like I said, thin on plot.
What it's rich in, however, is character development. And not quite like on that stupid TV show either. When actors in this movie are being snooty and quippy, they give it all they've got. And that's worth something, in the name of satire. On TV, it's just annoying. Buffy undergoes a certain transformation. She realizes that she is too good to devalue herself by hanging out with a group of sheepish friends who are slaves to popular trends, and don't really care about anything. She learns some very valuable lessons, and comes out fighting all the way. Granted, the extent of the circumstances she faces are slim.
