Heather (Shannon) is just readying herself for a night on the town when a woman (Holly Thornhill) forces her way into her apartment, corners her using a cricifix and holy water, then ties her to a chair ... because you see, Heather's a vampire, and apparently she has killed the woman's lover. But ropes can't hold a vampire, and Heather is quick to bring her unwanted visitor under her spell, then feasts on her before disposing of her body in the garbage.

At the club, Heather meets Jack (John Bowker) - he seems nice enough, if nerdy enough to show that Heather's clearly out of his league. Still, after sucking dry a dancer or two on the dancefloor, she takes him home with her, promising him a night of debauchery ... and suddenly, Wendy (Olivia Lind Vaughn) enters the apartment and stakes Heather.

Jack and Wendy are lovers, and they have traveled the countryside for a long time, ridding the country of vampires, mainly because Jack wants to avenge a former lover of his. Now Wendy wants out, but Jack can't give up, because with even one vampire left alive, their work will never be over ... and then Heather shows up at the scene again, because while Wendy might be a faithful accomplice to Jack, she's not quite as good at aiming stakes ...


Crimson Heather is by no means a great film - it's a shot-on-video film of the early 2000s, when SOV technology wasn't yet out there to look really slick, and it shows, things have an undeniable home video quality to it, there is next to no sophistication in the imagery of this movie. That's not to say director Joe Sherlock doesn't have a cinematic eye, some shots show ambition at least. And also, that's not to say the film's just bad - within its technological ramifications, it's actually rather decently paced, does feature a few interesting scenes, some tongue-in-cheek humour, and the actors, first and foremost Shannon, pull off their roles quite alright. But masterpiece it is not ...
