The movie for Buffy the Vampire Slayer predates the famous TV series and represents a road not taken for the character. Although the film was written by Joss Whedon, the creator who invented Buffy and her universe, the film was substantially different in tone and construction than the TV show would be. It also features entirely different actors in the familiar roles. Kristy Swanson plays Buffy and Donald Sutherland is the Watcher who trains her. Although Whedon has made public statements expressing dissatisfaction with this movie, it is an interesting film in its own right. Paul Reubens has an especially entertaining role as a vampire.
