Priscilla (Michellina Shaffranski) has returning nightmares about being
a vampire and killing a man, nightmares that become so worrying that her
husband Roger (Jae Mosc) urges her to consult her psychiatrist friend
Jeanette (Maria Bolaris). Jeanette interprets these dreams as warning
signals of schizophrenia ... but Jeanette is actually Roger's lover, and
the two plan to drive Priscilla to insanity and then live off of her
inheritance. Thing is though, Priscilla really is the reincarnation of a
vampire, and does possess dormant vampiric powers - something she only
starts to realize.
Eventually, Roger and Jeanette figure driving her
insane is taking a bit too long, so they drug her, kill the pizza guy
(Michael Siedlecki) and cover her mouth in his blood so it looks as if she
has bitten his throat in a fit of insanity. Problem is, when Priscilla
wakes up from her drugged state, she refuses to play along with Roger and
Jeanette's plans, runs away and hooks up with two semi-naked vampires
(Jenna King, Spike), who tell her they can only make her into a
full-fledged vampire if she kills the man she loves - which Priscilla has
no problems doing after finding out what he and Jeanette are really up to.
But once she has killed Roger and Jeanette, Priscilla realizes that her
two vampire friends actually tried to trick her and hand her over to the
police to be rewarded by the devil (Paul Dougherty) - so Priscilla stakes
the pair of them and becomes the devil's darling instead ...
course, this film cannot hide its independent, no-budget, amateur roots -
not all the actors are up to the task, the special effects are sub-par,
and sets and costumes are rather of the cheap variety -, but taking this
into account, the film is actually quite interesting, a fresh take on an
old subject, infused with quite some humour, and carried by quite an
inspired directorial effort and fluid camerawork ... which leaves me to
say that as a writer and director, Jim Haggerty is definitely one of the
more interesting names in the independent/no-budget/amateur sector and one
who's (hopefully) destined for bigger, better things.
