Storyline

Count Dracula is in L.A., running a hideous club scene, and he's angry that a rogue vampire, posing as a streetwalker, is slashing. He's also unhappy that Dallas, a youthful undead and former protégé, is in town. The rogue slasher, Nico, serendipitously picks Dallas as a victim; after discovering each other's nature, they become lovers. In fear of the Count, Dallas's coterie urges him to kill Nico, but he refuses. Meanwhile, a Viennese vampire hunter, Van Helsing, arrives in L.A. and hires the Crips to help him. They're soon following Nico and Dallas. When they capture her, Dallas wants to deal: spare Nico and he'll lead the hunters to Dracula. It's time for stake and bake. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

hilarious
22 January 2003 | by See all my reviews

This movie is a hilarious satire of vampire lore. Anyone into Evil Dead 2 or Army of Darkness should appreciate this flick. Anyone who thinks they are a vampire will most likely be offended. Very original in content and way ahead of its time. Like Spider Baby, this is sure to be an underground classic.
