Storyline

In Tecate, Mexico, an American tourist is hunting a treasure buried in the sand of a ghost town with his girlfriend Amy. However, he digs the grave of the vampire Luis Diego, who was buried thirty-five years ago by his friend Father Hernandez. Luis Diego kills the tourist and leaves Amy contaminated in the desert. Then he meets his former sweetheart Sarita, who has a stroke after seeing him. In Malibu, California, Sarita's niece Maricela and her best friends Heather and Samantha are on vacation and they decide to travel to Mexico to help her family. The local Cris and his family decide to give a party to Maricela and her friends; however, when Luis Diego sees the girl, he recalls Sarita and decides to give a second chance to his love. But he is a vampire and his love is impossible. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

I'm sorry, I'm confused. What's supposed to come out of the piñata ?
18 February 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There are some nice vampire gore scenes and definitely some major T&A on display in this direct-to-video production. Annika Svedman gave us a great show before she became a vampiress, but I sure wanted to see what Tori White had to offer.

There is even a lick-the-salt, drink-the-blood, and eat-the-lemon scene that was cute. Who needs tequila? It may be an B-indie, but there are lots of gorgeous characters, both male and female. The story is really interesting - a young vampire (Justin Quinn) buried for 35 years, and awoken by a treasure hunter, falls for the niece (Brenda Romero) of his former love (Yvonne Rawn).

If Don Henry has anymore ideas like this, I will look forward to seeing them.
