The story focuses on a group of 6 beautiful women called Thralls, referred to as "the white trash of vampires;" effectively a lower species of vampire. They don't kill people, they don't have the ability to turn their victims into vampires and they can't fly. These Thralls are under the control of Mr. Jones, the vampire who sired them, and whom they are trying desperately to escape. To do this they must complete a blood ritual which will turn them into full-blown vampires. Their plans hit a snag when Ashley, the younger sister of one of the Thralls, comes to visit. Ashley has no idea what her sister has been up to since moving to the big city nor what she has become... Written by
Looking at the cover I completely expected to see Julie Strain in the credits. I expected this to be another low-budget, sexploitation film casted by some guy asking a couple strippers if they wanted to be in a movie... I couldn't have been more wrong.
The movie opens as I would have expected: a half dozen very attractive women in lingerie chained by the ankle. As soon as Lorenzo (Renegade) Lamas enters the movie, everything changes.
The majority of the movie takes place in a nightclub holding a Halloween rave. It made me think more of the club in Hellraiser III as opposed to the Blood Raves in Blade.
The special effects were rather weak but the plot was actually well developed and creative with a new addition to the world of vampires in film, "Thralls".
Several of the beautiful women in the film (and Lamas) have some respectable acting credits to their names and it shows. While this will certainly not get a nod from AMPAS, for the genre the acting was really good.
Fans of vampire movies (especially ones who enjoy the beautiful, female vampire twist but are tired of really bad movies) will certainly enjoy this movie. If that sounds like you it's definitely worth a rental.
Note: there is only one scene in the movie with frontal female nudity, it's very brief and does not end in a good way (no spoilers here).
