In 1944, Gerhard Beckert (Carl-Åke Eriksson) was a soldier with the Nazis in the Ukraine, but when his battallion was cut off the main army, they discovered vampires - and the vampires had soon bitten all of them.

Nowadays, Beckert, who has hardly aged at all, works as a doctor in a hospital in a small Swedish town where the nights last for half a year, and he's a specialist in genetic engineering. He also has a private patient, young Maria (Aurora Roald), a souvenir he brought from the Ukraine, and she's really a vampire he likes to experiment on, as he tries to turn himself into something more than just a vampire. It seems, from her essence he has produced pills that can turn humans into vampires, which wouldn't be half as bad if a student doctor, Sebastian (Jonas Karlström), hadn't stolen the pills and tried them himself, and event hat wouldn't yet be half as bad if the pills weren't stolen from him and given out as ecstasy at a party - that soon turns into a bloodbath.

Add to this story Annika (Petra Nielsen) and her daughter Saga (Greta Havnesköld), newcomers to the town, and while at the climax, Annika has to fight Beckert and ultimately defeats him with little Maria's help, but not before she is turned into a vampire, Saga is the only one at the party who manages to remain human - but then she escapes town with her mother and Maria ...


A vampire movie that tries very hard to stay hip, modern, scientific, un-gothic ... but as a result has little new to offer to the genre. In fact the movie ultimately quotes everything from old Hammer films to Lost Boys, from Near Dark to Underworld, without adding anything essentially new to the genre - though the party turned into a bloodbath is at least inspired. Additional to that, the gargoyle-like monster into which Beckert turns at the climax has been done better elsewhere, while very little is made of the arctic night-premise - in fact, everything that goes on in this film happens in one single regular night, so what's the point?

All that said, the film at least has a vampire being impaled by a garden gnome, but that's hardly enough to really save the movie, is it?
