Buffy the Vampire Slayer is a 1992 comedy-horror film that follows a high school student’s unusual journey from Valley girl to the latest member of an ancient order sworn to protect the world from evil. Buffy Summers (Kristy Swanson) is a popular cheerleader who devotes her life to shopping and gossiping with friends. Her life changes suddenly when a man named Merrick Jamison-Smythe (Donald Sutherland) introduces himself as her Watcher and reveals that she is the Slayer, the “chosen one” who stands between humanity and the forces of darkness. Dismissing Merrick as an eccentric old man at first, Buffy soon learns that vampires are real. Her old friends abandon the newly serious Buffy, but she finds friendship and romance with fellow outsider Oliver Pike (Luke Perry). When the vampire Lothos (Rutger Hauer) threatens Pike’s life, Buffy gears up for her most important battle yet. Joss Whedon wrote the original script for the film, which he later developed into the cult TV show of the same name.
