In the Eighteenth Century, Rayne is the half-human half-vampire Dhampir and the lead attraction in a carnival's freak-show in Romania. When she escapes, she meets a fortuneteller that tells that her mother was raped by the king of the vampires Kagan and she decides to destroy her father. In her journey for revenge, she meets Vladimir and Sebastian, the leaders of the fortress of vampire hunters Brimstone, and she joins their society. She seeks for powerful talismans to defeat Kagan, while the skilled warriors Vladimir and Sebastian train her to face the forces of Kagan and her human side falls in love with Sebastian. Written by

According to screenwriter Guinevere Turner, while she was writing the first draft of the script, she received an angry phone-call from director Uwe Boll, who swore at her and demanded she hand in a draft of the script. About a week later, after she sent in the rough first draft of the script, she was shocked to learn that production was going to commence immediately with the draft. (Even though traditionally the first draft is always a "rough" draft that is improved upon in subsequent drafts.) Later on, she was informed that Boll and the actors had subsequently re-written much of her script while shooting, and that the finished film barely resemble her script. See more »
During the Rayne's sex scene, the lovers are against bars in one scene, but not when the camera angle changes. See more »
This is singularly one of the worst films I've ever seen. After seeing a wide selection of decent horror at Fantastic Fest a few weeks ago, I expected this to have some substance because it was picked to screen at the Austin Film Festival. All I can think of is that someone must have blackmailed the programmers because it's terrible.
The dailogue is either very cliché, or very stilted (and often both). There are serious continuity issues. The gratuitous sex scene was so completely sudden it seemed like an excerpt from a porn movie. The wigs are terrible, and the costuming as bad. There is no character development, and the motivations shown on screen seem more like red herrings than anything else.
I can't think of anything redeeming about this film other than I didn't pay money just to see it.
