Cool vampire-themed episode
30 November 2012 | by (The Last New Jersey Drive-In on the Left) – See all my reviews

The cynical Parker (a solid performance by Bruce Payne) and the rugged Burrows (the always excellent Michael Ironside in strong steely form) are two ex-soldiers turned poachers who enlist the assistance of scrappy local guide Jeri Drumbeater (sharply played with spunky snap by Vivian Wu) to do some illegal hunting in the remote Alaskan wilderness. However, the trio run afoul of a nest of ferocious vampires. Director John Hertzfeld, working from a compact script by Scott Nimerfro, relates the engrossing story at a snappy pace, makes fine use of the desolate snowy setting, maintains a tough serious tone throughout, and delivers one hell of a deliciously dark surprise macabre ending. Susan Tyrell contributes a spirited turn as sassy butch bartender Mona while Kaitlyn Walker has a memorably creepy bit as a little vampire girl. The bloodsuckers are supremely ugly and grotesque beasts. Both Rick Bota's polished cinematography and Frank Becker's galloping country-rock score are up to par. An enjoyable show.
