Re: Playground Squares XI: And here we go again!
The year is 1992. The movie is Buffy the Vampire Slayer. That's right, the movie, not the much better teevee series.
For those who don't know the basic story, in each Generation, a Slayer is born who will fight the vampires.... and apparently demons, devils, and other creatures who go bump in the night, but again, that's the teevee series.
This generations Slayer is Buffy (Kristy Swanson). And as her name implies, she's a vacant, vacuous and shallow valley girl, living in a material world with her best friends Kimberly (Hilary Swank), Nicole (Paris Vaughan), and Jennifer (Michele Abrams).
The movie was slightly different. For one, the Slayer is reborn after the previous one dies. There's not a line-up of girls just waiting for their predecessor to die. Two, the watcher Merrick (Donald Sutherland) is essentially immortal, being reborn over and over, knowing that his life is to be dedicated to training the Slayer. And three, they are constantly fighting and being killed by Lothos (Rutger Hauer), a poor Dracula wannabe, and his left hand man, Amilyn (Paul Reubens).
When Merrick is confronting Buffy in the girl's locker room, about missing the first training session, he tries to convince her that it is her destiny, it is what she is meant to do. But she refuses to acknowledge it, saying that all she wants to do is: "Graduate from high school, move to Europe, marry ______________, and die." Who is it she plans to marry?
