It just might be that the title noun is also an adequate adjective describing this film. Alright... dreadful is, perhaps, a little too harsh; but certainly the acting is amateurish and the audio is quite inferior. The concept has been somewhat modernized: A guy and gal break up. Her next steady is a well-to-do vampire. The previous boyfriend becomes aware of this via his job as an over-worked policeman conducting murder investigations. Now his challenge is to convince her of his suspicions. In summary - there are, no doubt, options that would be much better than this movie.
