Very creepy. I'd never heard of a "damphire" before. I suppose it must be rough, in universes where the undead exist, to ascertain whether someone is a good or evil member of the undead. Suspense, undead. Followed by long news commentary about the impending impeachment of Richard Nixon.

A vampire story with moral and obligatory overtones. It’s an ok story with so-so acting.

A woman recounts how her mother became a vampire. Seldes can't save this clunker of a story.

A family is headed by a domineering strong and self-centered mother who, after her death, is suspected of becoming a vampire. THe community, fearing for their safety, appeal to the daughter to kill the vampire because only Damfires, the offspring of vampires, can see and kill a vampire. The only problem is the daughter is in disbelief over the whole thing... can she be convinced?

Very good vampire story, and very atmospheric. I was a little surprised when the daughter kissed her dead mother on the lips. I didn’t think CBSRMT could get away with that lol.

3 stars.... 4 star acting, 2 star story. If not for the acting I probably would have turned it off. Has commercials.

Pretty good story. Atmospheric.

I thoroughly enjoyed this episode though I had my doubts. I am not a big vampire fan--Hollywood has unendated us with lousy vampire movies and television shows for about the last ten years. I am also not the biggest fan of the writer of "Sunset to Sunrise" Elspeth Eric. This vampire story was well written and interesting with just the right touch of creepy. 4 stars.

I thoroughly enjoyed this episode

This was an okay episode of trying to convince a daughter who just lost her mother that her mother has come back as a vampire, making her and her brother dhampirs (or dhampyre, dhamphir, or dhampyr, depending on who you ask). It was an overly long episode for the plot, even if the voice acting was good. I knew of dhampirs from the game (and bad movie) Blood Rayne.
