Cult film fans know Brooks as the last living link to the wacky world of celebrated z-grade auteur Ed Wood. The young Maryland local had small roles in several of Wood’s most famous films and has since parlayed this fact into a career of starring in dozens of shot-on-video schlock-fests. Not only did Brooks get back in front of the camera, but he also started directing his own low budget efforts back in his native Maryland. This resulted in two series – the JAN-GEL and the GYPSY VAMPIRE films. We already hit one JAN-GEL flick with HILLBILLY MONSTER (2003), so now it seems time to sink out teeth into (ah, boo yourself) a GYPSY VAMPIRE flick. Alright, someone pass the aspirin.
GYPSY VAMPIRE’S REVENGE is actually the second film in the series, but I’m brave (or stupid) enough to figure I can get the basics of the back story. We open with what is quite possibly the worst establishing shot in cinematic history.
