Storyline

This film concerns the exploits of the "Carpathian American" society in Long Beach. Carpathian Americans are just like any other expatriate organization, they enjoy family get together, and share business opportunities (cf the Italian Americans ...).

The film begins somewhere deep in the bible belt where teenager Cody wakes to find that intruders have just skewered his parents and are about to set fire to them for good measure. Despite being shot by a crossbow bolt Cody makes his escape from the "hunters". He remembers his parent's advice to him that if he was ever in trouble he should contact his uncle in Long Beach. The uncle turns out to be a local businessman (of an unscrupulous nature) and also a leading light in the "Carpathian American" society. Cody is introduced to other members of the society notably Harry, a crusading journalist and his non-Carpathian ... Written by Tom Longshaw <longshaw@signal.dera.gov.uk>

Lousy!

A vampire movie where the vampires don't drink blood, don't sleep in coffins, and don't even want to be called vampires? Oh pardon me, "TRANSYLVANIANS." Sheesh. This movie is the only thing that sucks.
