In Los Angeles, Detective Hank Holten is obsessed by his ex-wife, the writer of vampire novels Susan Hastings, stalking her and having drinking problems. His chief and friend, Captain John Billings, makes him promise to forget her and stop drinking, and assigns Hank to find Layla Simmons, who is missing and without notice to her family. Hank goes to a rave party, finds Layla, they go to an orgy party in an old building, and while having sex with her, Hank finds that the place is a vampire nest. He is bitten by the vampire-leader, but nobody believes on him. He looks for Susan to help him. Written by

I landed on this movie by mistake actually, started watching because the remote wasn't near me and I had things on my lap that prevented me from getting up to change the channel. I'm glad I didn't ... here's why:
For die hard vampire fans or horror flick fans this may be too light weight for you, but since I'm not a follower of the genre that would be up to you. This film is a really good film in my opinion. I kept watching at first because I wanted to see Kevin Dillion -- who turns out to be really quite good. I think the movie is supposed to be scary, but it seems to be done tongue in cheek -- I found myself laughing at times which is good for me since I'm not real into being scared myself. So, I enjoyed this about the movie. The storyline had a few turns that were unexpected and definitely kept me watching.
So, I'd say it's a keeper. Whether for a comedy for a horror flick I'm not quite sure which to put it under. And the funny thing is I say that in a good way. It was quite enjoyable and I'd even say that I'd watch it again. I hope more people post opinions so I can come back and read what others had to say about the movie. Enjoy - I hope.
