Daryl Hannah is an American singer, dancer and actress. She first made her screen debut in the horror film The Fury. Her performance earned her the lead role in the movie, playing the evil “Old woman.” Since then, Hannah has gone on to play a variety of well-known roles in movies and television, including the lead role in the animated feature The Secret, as well as recurring guest stars on shows such as Frasier.
In her film debut, Daryl Hannah played the role of “Old Lady,” the elderly woman who haunts the Finch house during the events of the final scene. In the film, Old lady keeps a diary detailing her many emotions while residing in the small town of Chicago. Throughout the film, Old lady keeps repeating phrases like “I gotta get back to Chicago” and “I gotta run.” In one episode, she urges Martin (Kenny Johnson) to take her to heaven so she can be with her beloved. When Martin refuses, she lets herself fall ill and ends up in a mental institution.
It was this mental institution that would prove so instrumental in understanding the character of Daryl Hannah. After spending time in the mental institution, Hannah is allowed to interact with other people, which she does by going to bars with friends. In the course of the film, it is revealed that she has a crush on Martin, and he allows her to spend the night at his apartment, which upsets a group of burglars who try to rob Martin the next day.
After Martin recovers from the attempted robbery, he invites Hannah to his home for lunch, where he tells her about his recent diagnosis, in which he had been given an electro-convulsive treatment. After this revelation, Hannah starts to question why she decided to visit him in the first place, and after seeing the scars from the electroconvulsive treatment, realizes it was to give her the chance to see if he was really worthy of being a doctor. It is here that Daryl Hannah starts to change, and changes into someone we may identify with, in an almost comic way. She develops a crush on Martin and even tries to seduce him, though this is foiled by his mother, Lorraine (Daryl Hannah).
Considering the fact that this is a supernatural horror film, it is easy to see how Daryl Hannah would become a fan favourite in the US and in Britain. Possibly one of the best films of the year, American Vampire Girl has been praised by critics both in the US and the UK for its brilliant portrayal of a romance gone wrong. Not only did Hannah get to reprise her role of Daryl Hannah, but she was also given a supporting role in this film alongside Australian actress Sarah Michelle Gellar. As is often the case with Hannah’s acting, Gellar sells the role quite well, and although Hannah didn’t achieve the same level of stardom as she did in yesteryear, American Vampire Girl manages to maintain her fan status.

The other two female characters in the film are played by Noomi Rapace and Rosa Salazar. Noomi Rapace is an American film actress best known for her work in the TV show CSI. She appears in a supporting role here as a government researcher working in the Environmental Protection Agency. Meanwhile, Rosa Salazar is an accomplished Spanish actress known for her work in Hollywood. Her character is a top level mermaid played by Amber Heard. In my opinion, this is the best film of the year, and I hope that American Vampire Girl continues thrilling movie fans for many more years to come.
