"AFTER SUNDOWN" is an action-packed story of a young woman who uncovers a dark secret that has been laid dormant for centuries. Before she can even comprehend her discovery, she is plunged into a gory battle with a predatory vampire from the American Old West, who is in search for his vampire offspring that was taken from him so long before. He will stop at nothing and devour all whom try to stand in his way but with each bite he will recruit another undead soldier to serve him... With the help of Texas locals, the woman leads the fight in a wild clash against the vampire and his undead army to regain control of the human race and send the evil creatures straight to Hell!

I see many independent and low-budget films, and those involved with this film on all levels clearly have talent. The problem with low-budget horror films in particular is that horror is a genre that relies a great deal upon mood. Without a lot of money to put into good film stock, these films often appear digitized and lack the ability to give the same degree of color richness, depth and texture necessary to set an appropriate mood. Lighting is also far less forgiving, which influences not only mood but also the special effects and gore. So, while it is clear those involved in this film have talent, the low-budget nature is often distracting, and left me wondering what could have been. The story has an interesting twist on typical vampire lore with the addition of zombies (and I love a good zombie flick). Throw some more money at these guys, and lets see what they can do next.
