Cindy and Lucy are eighteen and going away to college. As a ritual they must rid themselves of the dirt of their small home town (Allburg) by swimming in an abandoned church crypt. They jump in and begin talking about sex when Lucys crucifix falls into the water and drifts down to land on Czakyr's (an ancient vampire) head, apparently waking him up. Some time onwards a school teacher from a nearby town, Mark, gets directed to Allburg to help Lucy and her grandmother, who are suspected to be in trouble. Lucy becomes the target of a town turned vampire because of her 'virgin blood'. Mark, Lucy and an old wino shack up in an abandoned building outside of town but eventually get lured back to Allburg by the locals. There, with a giant glowing cross spearing the front of their Toyota, they take the town on and battle Czakyr. They win and life is restored to its original normalcy. Written by
Nominated along with Child's Play 3 and others as the best horror film of 1991 by the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Films, it was beaten by a recognized film of excellence, The Silence of the Lambs. To be in such company is an honor, and indicates this film is worth the time to view.
Father frank (Evan MacKenzie) confesses his sins to Mark (Peter DeLuise), but his secret in his brother's house is far more interesting. He has Karen (Karen Black) and Cindy (Maya McLaughlin) locked i a room because they are vampires. he begs Mark to help him find the source.
Mark, Lucy (Ami Dolenz), and Matty (Garrett Morris) end up together fighting the vampire infestation. There is a lot of good effects that make this adventure enjoyable. It's a campy flick, not the usual vampire horror, and it is very funny at times. You will enjoy it, I'm sure.
