For four years now, vampire slayer Jack (Josh Rothman) and company had
been on the trail of Monty's (Christian Chase) vampire clan - and then
they went into a trap, with Jack's little group annihilated, all but Jack
himself whom Monty decided to turn into a vampire, which he figured would
torture him more than death itself.
Now Jack, not yet a vampire but
feeling the change happening, has only 24 hours to do what he's come for,
and that's to exterminate Monty and company - but Monty has more allies
than Jack could ever hope for, even Jack's ex (Athena Brensberger) is now
in cahoots with Monty in exchange for eternal life as a vampire, and she
does her best to throw Jack off-track. But Jack is starting to develop
vampire senses, so eventually he manages to just "sense" Monty's
whereabouts, and he and his last living partner Padre (Roberto Lombardi)
walk into the lion's den - and into a trap at the same time ... but on
Monty's side, is everyone's allegiance to him unwaivering?
Seregon O'Dassey plays the femme fatale-one of Monty's vampires.
cool piece of vampire cinema that attaches 1980s action movie macho-isms
to the undead genre rather seamlessly without dumbing things down in any
way, rather turning the movie into a very stringent and well-paced genre
mash-up that brings the right irony to things but can get pretty serious
at all the right moments. Now add to this a fittingly straight-forward
directorial effort and a cast that acutally understands their characters,
even if many of them are clichés (and rather fittingly, too), and you've
got yourself quite a fun horror show!
