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

pure boredom
21 December 2007 | by See all my reviews

this film is a total waste of time. first of all the story is totally uninspired. it's like put together from a few random vampire books and contains absolutely no surprises or suspense or what you might else expect from a vampire story. well OK there is a simple romance thing but that too is not very well executed imho. the characters are also not even two dimensional, but simple and boring like a line in the dust.

that said, the acting is as bad as the script. it feels like quite bad soap opera style acting. the only excuse for the actors is imho that it might be really hard to deliver a good performance with such a lousy script.

finally there is not even close enough blood and stuff to provide even a little fun in a kind of old school splatter b movie style.
