When nightshift medic Jack (Jason Mewes) finds a girl, Danika (Erica Cox), covered in blood in the dumpster, it's love at first sight, and he takes her home and nurses her back to health, and even though she clearly shows withdrawal symptoms, he believes her when she claims she hasn't been taking any drugs. Her state however worsens from day to day ... until Jack's ex (Jordan Madley) stops by, the two women get in a fight, and Danika bites her to death, sucking her blood. So Jack finds out Danika is a vampire - and she didn't even know it herself until now. Thing is, she needs fresh blood, and human blood at that, and blood from the bloodbank simply won't do. Jack tries to feed her some of his, but he simply hasn't got enough in himself to satisfy her hunger ... so almost against his will he starts roaming the streets at night to bring home lowlifes and junkies to feed to Danika. When she one night brings home a prostitute (Amy Lynn Grover) to feed on her while having sex with Jack, that's almost too much for him.

Jack's personal problem start to have an effect on his work, so his best friend and colleague Roger (Richard Fitzpatrick) decides to have a look at Jack's girlfriend for himself ... and when Jack finds Danika trying to kill Roger, which he can prevent only just, he decides it's too much, and he and Roger decide to put a stake through her heart ... and they are actually successful, too, but in the preceeding struggle, Jack got bitten (and turned into a vampire of course), and now Roger promises Jack to keep him alive no matter what ...


In case you couldn't guess it from my synopsis, Bitten is a vampire comedy, though not of the a-laugh-a-minute kind but using a subtler approach, an approach that allows the movie to also show dark and atmospheric scenes and a bit of gore every now and again. This of course  makes the film a pretty ok horror comedy, but a certain directorial indifference towards its macabre source material and a certain shallowness on plot-level keep this from becoming a genre classic. Sill, it's at least entertaining and enjoyable to watch.
