It is difficult to give a synopsis of this film. I don't give too much away when I way it is about Satanya, who got bitten by a vampire in the 1960's, gained the eternal life and still lives as if the sixties were not over yet. She meets vampire Andreas and his sidekick Smoke who form a pact with the leader of a satanic cult . To say more would give too much away from this highly original film in which too much is going on to know where to begin retelling the story. No expensive computer graphics here, but I always find it ridiculous when people demand things to look real when dealing with subjects that aren't . But if you care for an original story, with a unique view on vampires, look no further than Warren F. Disbrow's film. Vampires are no sinister characters that appear unexpectedly for shock value, but three dimensional characters, interacting with each other in such a way that there is much more to them than just being scary. The character of Professor Herz, who also had a leading role in Warren Disbrows previous two films (available on the "Warren Disbrow Double Feature) and is again played by the director's father, makes an appearance here as some sort of modern Van Helsing kind of person, reluctantly interrupting his interesting research in the South American jungle, this time not to destroy aliens, but to fight the undead menace. The film has very dark and disturbing moments, wonderfully comedic scenes and great acting. With the limited funds Warren Disbrow has to his use, it is amazing he keeps producing new films that are impossible to turn off. One might wonder what a unique talent like him would accomplish with a budget of even twenty or thirty thousand dollars. But then on the other hand, that would also mean a restriction of the artistic freedom he now has, and Disbrow is a real auteur in every sense of the word. Any interference from others could only lessen the final result. Warren Disbrow is a genius, his films are fantastic. And this is one of his very best. The DVD also has, amongst many others, a feature length behind-the-scenes documentary that gives us some insight in how he manages to bring us this wonderful film, and a highly informative audio-commentary. You can't afford not to get this one if you look further than just flashy FX. Michael Bruce, from Alice Cooper's band in the heydays, also makes an appearance.
