Storyline

Sean is driving cross-country to deliver a vintage Mercedes and attend his sister's wedding when he picks up hitchhiker Nick, who just happens to be a vampire hunter, tracking down a group of youthful vampires who feed on unwary travelers. They run into Megan, who has been left for dead by the vampires. As they use her as a lure for the vampires, Sean becomes attracted to her. After Sean is infected with the vampire virus, he, Megan and Nick must race against time to kill the vampire leader Kit to stop Sean from becoming one of the undead.

When they are driving through the desert and Sean asks him to throw the beer can out, when he tosses it you can clearly see it is crumpled, but when it hits the cops car its still a smooth can and rolls right off the hood. See more »

Loved it and plan to see it again.
28 April 2001 | by (US) – See all my reviews

I thought this movie was great. Didn't have too much of the mystical mumbo-jumbo, while still adhering to a lot of vampire lore. This movie, while similar to Blade and many other vampire movies, brings new blood to an old story. Let's face it. The vampire tale has been told about every new way possible. While it's true it's very gory, this one combines some of the old and some of the new for a unique affect.

That and the slashyness of it made my day.
