Richard (Bill Oberst jr), a small-fry gangster, wants out for him and his expert lock-picker daughter Mouse (Mary Katherine O'Donnell), and is granted to just be let go after one last job on Halloween night - provided he takes strongman Percy (Kane Hodder) with him - something Richard is not happy about because Percy is a psycho with a predilection for torture and murder and Richard detests violence per se. But then it's one last job ...

Elsewhere in town, family man Melvin (David Rucker III) has dreams of opening a Museum of the Macabre - much to the dismay of his wife Louisie (Linnea Quigley) and his going-on-forty-but-dressing-like-a-schoolgirl stepdaughter Caroline (Kelley Wilson Robinson) - and to that end he has just ordered the unopened coffin of the vampire Masquerade (Veronika Stoykova) as the center piece of his exhibition - and of course a great Halloween attraction. As these stories always go, Louisie opens the coffin, removes the stake from the vampire's heart, and ...

It's Halloween night, and as it happens, Richard, Mouse and Percy were sent to rob Melvin's place - which is when Richard and Mouse realize they've been set up, and Percy was actually sent with them just to kill them. Percy is killed by newly revived Masquerade rather quickly though, but now Richard, Mouse and Melvin have to team up to destroy Masquerade - but that's easier said than done as she's near indestructible and has hypnotic powers, which means out unlikely group of heroes are soon enough at each other's throats ...


If you mix gangster flick and vampire movie you get ... a situation comedy? Well, at least in this film it works. Sure, the film scores high on violence both genres suggest, and sure enough doesn't shy away from anything, but what really makes it work is that it fully acknowledges the absurdity of its premise and winks at the far-fetchedness of some of its plotpoints, but gets the most out of the situation and plays it for laughs - even if some of the humouris very dark. And what really helps is that the leads, while obviously in on the joke, play it straight, and thus they, and the direction, keep the film from going full blast moronic, instead turn this into a rather delightful horror farce.
