Have you ever came across a movie and thought "I must own that" based on the title alone. Well for me this is one of those flicks, actually one of many movies I purchased based on that concept. With a title like that how could I not get it, plus it had Coolio and Tiny Lister in it. Now regardless of the title it is in no way connected to the Wes Craven franchise that had the 2000 title on it. Plus like I said Coolio is in it.
The year is 3000 and a ship called Mother is on its way to a much larger vessel called Demeter. It has been on its way to Earth for a very long time and this group is there to investigate. Little do they know that the cause of the ships trouble from years and years ago still lies in wait. The crew boards the other ship and look around only to have their own ship take off seemingly on its own. But a creature from long ago is on board with them and it is hungry.
This in all honesty is not a great movie and by all means is a bad one, but that is why I like it. I am a big fan of these types of flicks which of course many cal B movies. The script here from Ivan Milborrow and director Darrell Roodt seems like it started out as a good idea, Dracula in space sounds good to me. But things don't come together like I am sure they wanted it to. Everything about this flick screams low budget including the acting for the most part. Coolio is funny and at times I am not sure he was meant to be and Langley Kirkwood seems like he didn't even want to be there.
Erika Eleniak seems like she was trying [I still can't figure out how she got all the info she got from Orlock/Dracula] as was everyone else I guess but only Lister seemed straight up good in this. Casper Van Dien looks like he doesn't care at times as the future Van Hellsing. The thing is I have seen better from everyone involved from the director to the actors. So that was a bit of a letdown but that brings me to my biggest complaint here, what was with that ending. Watch this flick I tell me if that ending came from nowhere as if they just gave up on it or something. Sadly even with that I still kinda enjoyed it even with my brother's MST3K like commentary throughout the flick.
