Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1992 Movie)

From Mental Block

Buffy the Vampire Slayer is a 1992 American horror-comedy film about a high school cheerleader (Kristy Swanson) who discovers that she is destined to fight vampires as a powerful "slayer." The movie costarred Donald Sutherland, Luke Perry, and Rutger Hauer.

The finished film was taken in a different direction from the one its writer Joss Whedon intended. Five years later, he created the darker and acclaimed TV series of the same name.
