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

A few years ago I read a really good vampire novel called "Out for blood" by John Peyton Cooke, and I could not put it down.And then I heard about this movie with the same title also about Vampirism and thought it was cool that the book became a movie.It turned out that it was a different story all together and "vampires-out for blood" was not based on the book I read.But I really ended up liking the movie anyways.For a lower budget(but not too low)movie about vampires it really wasn't bad. It was easy to follow and easy to relate to and get into. I have always liked Kevin Dillon and he played the part of the cop well.This film for the budget has OK special effects and a decent storyline.I really liked how the movie played with your mind so you didn't know if what was happening to the detective was real or just in his head because of his obsession with his ex-wife and her fascination with vampires.Either way,it was an original and somewhat more believable movie with it's twist at the end.Lance Henriksen also did an outstanding job playing the skeptical police captain. The only part that wasn't really necessary was all the nudity.It would have been better if there were at least some same sex couples making out during the orgy scene as well to make it more realistic.I mean cm-on it is Los Angeles for Chrissakes!I don't think it would have hurt the movie by any means,especially this type of movie.
