Susan Dey was a vampire!

Back in February 2011, we first examined Susan Dey's 1995 TV movie Deadly Love. The information offered in that post was sparse but it was all that was available at the time. Now the time has finally come for us to take a deeper look at this fantastic Lifetime vampire movie!

Susan Dey is absolutely wonderful in Deadly Love. The actress is perhaps at the very top of her game, having just come off a string of well-received made-for-television movie projects over the previous few years. Physically, Dey is simply stunning here (she reminded me a bit of Michelle Pfeiffer, only much better looking) and proves beyond a doubt that she could have been starring in feature films if she had wanted or had been given the chance.

Deadly Love allowed Susan Dey an opportunity to do something completely new: play a vampire! Though no stranger to projects involving romance, the actress rarely played in things involving an element of fantasy. She is perfectly cast as the immortally beautiful vampire and she brings a wonderful ethereal quality to her role. 

Dey also has great chemistry with her co-star Stephen McHattie and the two share several somewhat explicit love scenes together. Some Susan Dey fans, if they haven't seen the movie, will be happy to hear that the actress appears to have done most or all of her own love-making scenes with minimal use of a body double!

Overall, Deadly Love is a great entry in the Susan Dey canon. She handles her role with great style and looks lovely doing it.
