Directed by Fran Rubel Kuzui

United States 1992 86 mins.

Before it was a beloved TV show, Fran Rubel Kuzui directed Joss Whedon’s original feature script that follows reluctant Chosen One Buffy Summers’ (Kristy Swanson) journey to take on the mantle of vampire slayer. When her “watcher”/mentor Merrick (Donald Sutherland) tells Buffy she’s this generation’s slayer, she’s incredulous and might not be up to the responsibility. But when a local vampire king (Rutger Hauer) and his lackeys (headed up by Paul Ruebens as Amilyn) start killing her classmates, Buffy teams up with vampire-attack survivor Oliver Pike (Luke Perry) to face him (and hopefully still get in a dance at prom).
