UNDYING LOVE *** U.S.A. 1991 Dir: Greg Lamberson 75 mins

Scott Kelly is so depressed he tries to take his own life, but when his attempt fails he is tempted to everlasting life by the beautiful Camilla. As bodies drained of blood appear around New York City and the police come knocking at his door, Scott must now choose between his own thirst for blood or doing the right thing.
Gregory Lamberson followed up his slimefest 'SLIME CITY' with this vampire movie that is surely influenced by George A. Romero's 'MARTIN'. Tommy Sweeney plays the depressed Scott Kelly whos attempt at suicide at the very beginning of the film leaves you uncomfortable and sets the tone for the rest of the film. Julie Lynch stars as Camilla who entices Scott with her looks and so much more. She would only go on to make a few other films after 'UNDYING LOVE' as an actress but she would have been perfect for a Giallo film. Robert C. Sabin and Mary Huner from 'SLIME CITY' also appear in this film. If you are expecting fanged vampires who are scared of crosses and holy water you will be disappointed as Lamberson has opted out of the traditional vampire route but for this film it works. With 'UNDYING LOVE' he has shown he has a writing/directing range that can go further then grossing people out and can give you a solid character driven film.
