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

Pretty good movie
28 May 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I would give his film an 8.5 out of 10, it is not an Oscar caliber movie but i do not know how many horror films are. I enjoyed watching it. I laughed at some funny parts and enjoyed the different outlook on the undead. The movie never came out and said that they were vampires and it also deals with a complicated question, Can a vampire be good even though he needs blood to survive?

I found that my friends and I were discussing this question long after the film was over. Which all this the film was still suspenseful and scary. I would not recommend watching this movie at night when you are alone.
