Storyline

In high school, Christopher 'Chris' Chandler was almost too good to be true: his gorgeous, perfectly trained body earned him a place in the Allstate swim-team and his scholarship for the small US college Drake, yet he never fell for pride or the temptation of parties and groupies, remaining modest and considerate. As a freshman, he takes his nerdy roomy Dan under his wing and even grants his request to go to a frat party (just the sort of elitist arrogance Chris loathes), where they got invited by Megan, a hip girl student Dan wouldn't dare to dream about. Alas the invitation was really arranged by Devon Eisley, the president of the somewhat Gothic fraternity "Doma (House of) Tau Omega", who has found a key to eternal youth without having to become blood-drinking vampires and tricks Chris at the party into drinking each-others blood, after which he starts changing for the worse...

Dismally bad attempt at homoerotic vampire flick
16 April 2001 | by (Atlanta, GA) – See all my reviews

A bunch of hunky guys with bodies to die for march around - say a few stilted sentences - pull off their shirts, reveal they are vampires and then say a few more stilted words. That pretty much sums up this baaaad film. If you want to look at really hunky guys - go for it. Don't expect much in the way of script or acting though. There is only one actor with anything resembling talent and he's relegated to being the "ugly geek" though he is not. You could drive trains through the gaps in the dialogue - which is too elaborate and wordy for what is being said. Expositional information is related that doesn't fit the characters presenting it. And explain something to me - how does the most popular fraternity manage to have only four members, yet have parties where dozens upon dozens attend - and yet they "rush" only one candidate?

The "best" thing about this film is its blatent homoerotic overtones. There's a particularly cheesy scene in which one vampire helps his novice drink blood from a girl's arm...from the camera angle, for all practical purposes, it looks as if one guy is having oral sex with the other. And the guys seem to hang all over each other and walk around half naked in front of each other for no reason at all. I think this had to have been scripted, shot, directed, or lensed by either a woman or a gay male because it is just "too" much.

I'd like to find out how to become a filmmaker of this caliber because it seems like there is some sort of market for this trash. However, I would imagine that it is probably just as difficult to make a film like this as it would be to make a good one - so why not go the extra mile?
