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
Feeling regretful, Frank? Well, I guess that's pretty standard in your line of work. I'll never apologize for the way I am. I like it. If I want someone's blood I'll take it. And I'm not ashamed of what I am and what I want and how I want it, and I want you. My soul, my flesh craves you.

This is essentially a campy horror flick with some one-liners, some blood and Ami Dolenz. The film concerns a small country town overrun by vampires and only an out-of-town teacher (Peter DeLuise) and the town drunk (Garrett Morris) are able to fight the legion of the undead. Our unlikely heroes have to protect virginal Ami Dolenz whose blood is intoxicating to head vampire David Sawyer.
STORY: $$ (The story is bare bones. Too many campy horror flicks poke fun at small country communities. A little originality wouldn't hurt. The camp works at times but more often it is absurd. The vampires aren't menacing but more along the lines of comedy. This is clearly one of those turn-your-brain-off-and-enjoy flicks).
ACTING: $$ (Nothing special here either. Cult actress Karen Black has a cameo as the town maneater and young Lloyd Kalicki is quite good as the perverted pre-teen peeping tom. Shirley Jacobs as Ami Dolenz's grandmother may give the best performance. Ami Dolenz, as always, is fine as the object of intrigue but some of the other main actors were poorly cast. Josette DiCarlo is beyond annoying as the town sheriff and Garrett Morris hiccups his way through his role as a drunkard. Peter DeLuise was a horrible selection as the leading man. He lacks a strong screen presence and in a film like this, you really need a Bruce Campbell, Bruce Abbott type as the leading man and not some no-name like Peter DeLuise).
NUDITY: None. But a soaking wet Ami Dolenz is alright.
