Night brings out the hungerin people, especially a mysterious NY cab driver. He is a powerful vampire. And working the night shift brings a sultry array of sensuous passengers within his grasp.

When a slew of innocent citizens are senselessly slaughtered, the baffled police must solve a 350 year old mystery of unsated passion.

* * * out of 4.

350 year old vampire works as an all night cab driver and only kills females that are about to or willing to die. His newest target is a TV producer who is dying from terimanal cancer, but he falls in love with her. Also, seems he didn't finish off all his victims cause female vampires walking the streets are slaughtering off innocent people.

Smart, stylish horror flick is well directed and features a good premise. Fast editing, snappy pacing, some seriously sexy moments, and a good finale make this very low budgeted film much better then expected. The special effects could have used a bit more work though.

Rated R; Strong Sexual Content, Extreme Violence, Graphic Nudity, and Profanity.
