Vampires are real ... or maybe not.

Anyways, of late a cult has emerged with members being into torturing, drinking human blood, and opposing the Christian faith wherever possible, which culminates in a church shooting. Now most of these vampires are "lifestyle" vampires, not real ones, and most of them are in it for the kick, not because they are really violent and bloodthirsty persons - but they are said to have a leader who's an actual vampire, a leader who nobody really knows ...

Michael (Garrett Schweighauser), a seminarist, is part of a gang of vigilantes specializing in vampire-hunting, and they have found out the identity of said vampire leader, none other than pastor Steven (Matthew Rocca), the very priest whose church has been attacked in that church shooting. Michael's team wants to take down pastor Steven, who can't stop acting holier than though, during a fundraiser for the families of the victims of that shooting, but then Michael's team is erradicated, and he finds himself burdened with Vivian (Eva Rocca), a girl he has saved from a vampire attack, and who now wants to help him under any circumstances. And even if she's not very well suited, she helps him steal Steven's laptop and out of a tight spot when Steven catches them.

Presently, Steven is holding a dinnerparty for his funders while Michael is trying to find the location of Steven's torture dungeon ... and Vivian learns that while trying to get to Steven, Michael and his group have tortured and killed many innocent "lifestyle" vampires, making him no better than Steven and his gang who have killed many innocent Christians ...

During the dinner party, Steven gets more and more phonecalls about how his organization is falling apart, and he slowly loses it, which makes his dinnerparty fall apart as well, while Michael closes in on him, with Vivian in tow, who doesn't know what to believe anymore - which can only lead to a very lethal finale ...

 

Now what's really cool about Bullets, Fangs, and Dinner at 8 is its really cool extended finale, not only because of its many unexpected twists and turns and gore scenes but because it also reveals the ambiguity of all of its main characters, defying audience expectations, up until the very end. And it features a few tongue-in-cheek scenes too the set-up preceding it unfortunately misses - and that's one of the problems with the movie as a whole: It takes itself too seriously. Plus, it spends too much time on its set-up and thus gets overly convoluted and unnecessarily complex - and unlike the finale the build-up is disappointingly formulaic and frankly not all that interesting.

That's not saying the movie's a trainwreck, far from it, there is plenty to entertain genre audiences in there - but it stays a few feet clear of what it could have been with a tighter script ...
