Rebecca has inherited her grandmother's Gothic mansion and brings both her best friend an her boyfriend for a weekend. While exploring the crypts they discover an old dusty book, which describes the life of a vampire. As the story unfolds, it becomes apparent that the vampire was Rebecca's great grandfather, Rico. Later that night Rebecca finds herself in a trance, reciting an occult ritual described in the book resulting in the opening of the coffin and the new life for Rico. The Angel of the Night is back.

If Robert Rodriguez made a vampire flick it would be...From Dusk Till Dawn. If someone who obviously admired Robert Rodriguez made a vampire flick, it would be Angel of the Night. From the get-go of this Fangoria release the bad dubbing stirs a lot of laughter but by the second act everyone is usually into it. There are a hundred flaws like this, but I'm going to forgive most of them because the movie wasn't unwatchable. It borrows heavily from many other films, such as From Dusk Till Dawn, Desperado, Kindred: The Embraced, and even Demon Knight. The action is very stylized and the gunfights are straight out of the John Woo/Robert Rodriguez handbook. At one point a Spanish character with long hair is even called Banderas. That same scene is the one to watch for: the hallway shootout. It's nicely done. I absolutely love the part when the vampire morphs into the mouse and then gets blown away by the sawed off, double barrel (which is used in practically every scene). Angel of the Night is an excellent, although very corny, low-budgeter. I wasn't expecting too much when I watched it, but I got a little more than I bargained for. That's what usually makes for the best movies.
