In this semi-sequel to 'BloodRayne', with Kagan, Vladimir, Sebastian, and most of Brimstone gone, Rayne (Natassia Malthe) decides to leave Romania and come to New York City, USA to hunt vampires. Over the next 150 years or so, as the railroads and the people moved west, Rayne followed. In the present year of 1881, one of the towns along the way soon to get the railroad is the sleepy little town of Deliverance. Not even investigative reporter Newton Piles (Chris Coppola), dispatched from the Chicago Chronicle to get a story about the "wild" West, can come up with anything juicy about Deliverance. Not much ever happens in Deliverance...until now.
Vince (Jamie Switch) and Bernadette (Carrie Genzel) have just finished
supper when Vince hears noises out in the yard. Thinking that it might be a bear, Vince loads his shotgun and goes looking. When the noises start to sound like something is whooshing around the outside of the house, Bernadette tells her two young sons, William (Cole Heppell) and Jessie (Aidan Williamson), to get into the bed and stay there. Then she goes out looking for Vince. Minutes pass. The boys get scared and climb under the bed just as someone with tall black boots enters the cabin. The stranger sits on one of the chairs and starts talking to the boys. "Do you miss your mother and father already?" he asks, then adds, "Don't worry, you'll join them soon enough."
The next night, Martha (Sarah-Jane Redmond) has just finished her shift as barmaid at the Deliverance salloon. Bartender Bob (Chris Spencer) suggests that she go upstairs and check on her two young daughters, Mary (Taya Calicetto) and Sally (Jodelle Ferland). The girls have just been awakened by a rapping and a face at their bedroom window. When Martha peeks in to see whether or not the girls are asleep, she is suddenly grabbed from behind. Two other guys grab the screaming girls and carry them outside where the man in the tall black boots is
waiting. Martha pleads with him not to hurt her daughters. "I'll do anything," she says. "That's what I'm counting on," he replies and begins to walk down the street. Sheriff Cobden (John Novak) orders him to release the children. When he refuses, the Sheriff starts firing, but the bullets go right through the guy. He continues to advance on the Sheriff and sinks his fangs into the Sheriff's neck. He then turns on Mayor Holden (Michael Robinson), who is wise enough not to resist. This is how vampire Billy the Kid (Zack Ward) came to control Deliverance and take up residence in the Mayor's house.
'Billy' is actually a several hundred year-old vampire from Transylvania.
His plan is to make Deliverance the hub of his vampire army, using the railroad to attract travelers, turn them into vampires, and then send them out over the country, eventually making America his domain. Kidnapping the children serves two purposes: 1) to coerce their parents into submission, and 2) to keep a choice blood supply at hand. He even has invited Newton Piles to follow him around and, thus, report on "the greatest story ever told."
Rayne has come calling on her friends Vince and Bernadette, only to find
them lying dead in the yard, with no trace of William and Jessie. She rides into Deliverance proper to see if she can find the children. No sooner does she get there but that she is met by Sheriff Cobden (now a vampire) and his two vampire deputies who warn her not to use her guns in their town and send her over to "the Pit" (the Mayor's house) where she can find employment and get prettied up. Rayne heads over to the Pit where she encounters an old adversary, Flintlock Hogan (Mike Dopud), who invites her to join his poker game with his friends Irish Mick (Vincent Gale) and Kentucky (Steffen Mennekes). When Rayne
wins the hand, a fight breaks out, and Hogan suggests they take it outside.
Once outside, they face each other, draw their guns, and shoot. Hogan drops to the ground and begins to disintegrate. "Bad reaction to some bullets, some holy water, and some garlic," Rayne explains to onlookers. When Kentucky and Irish Mick rush her, Rayne shoots them, too, and they also disintegrate. Sheriff Cobden and his two deputies pounce on Rayne, knock her out, and place her in a jail cell to await hanging at midnight.
When Rayne regains consciousness, she is approached by Newton Piles who wants to interview her for his paper. Rayne is more interested in finding out about Billy and his plans. Piles doesn't know very much, but the guy in the next cell turns out to be Brimstone. Muller (Brendan Fletcher) has been following Billy ever since Cheyenne, Wyoming and is on to Billy's plan to use the railroad to send out vampires. Unfortunately, midnight comes around too quickly.
The vampires take out Muller and hang him. Then it's Rayne's turn. She is led to the gallows, the rope is placed around her neck, and the mayor is forced to read the charges and verdict against her. At the very last minute, however, Rayne breaks loose from the straps binding her hands and cuts the hanging rope. Bartender Bob tosses Rayne her swords, and she uses them to slice the Sheriff's throat before he can knock her out again. She then leaps into a nearby river while the bullets keep flying at her.
Having been hit by several bullets, Rayne is pulled out of the river by
Pat Garret (Michael Pare), who watched her kill those three vampires the other night. Garret is also a vampire hunter and, in fact, while Rayne's hanging was going on, he burned down the Deliverance train station to prevent the train from coming through. When Rayne tells him that she's going to need blood to survive and explains that she is a damphir, not a vampire, he willingly slices his arm and allows her to feed on his blood. Once Rayne is healed enough to ride, Garret suggest that they get a few more hands to help them rid the world of filthy vampire scum. The first addition to their hunting team is the Preacher (Michael Eklund), actually a wanted criminal who wanders around bilking money from religious repentants. Rayne then talks the gunman-for-hire known as Slimebag Franson (Michael Teigen) to ride with them.
Come nightfall, the four vampire hunters load up on silver bullets and
garlic, pledge their allegiance to Brimstone, and go riding into Deliverance. Between the four of them, and someone with a Gatling gun, they manage to take out their share of vampires, while the townsfolk watch safely from inside the saloon. Rayne hears children crying in one of the buildings and carefully tries to enter the room. As she opens the door, a weight is tripped and nooses around the children's neck begin to tighten. Only by holding the rope that keeps the weight from falling can Rayne keep the children from being hanged. Seated in a chair and watching, vampire Billy laughs as one of the childen falls and is strangled to death by his noose.
In the saloon, Newton Piles (who has merely been observing up until this
point) snaps. He chides the townspeople for sitting by idly while Rayne and her friends risk their lives to save the town's children. Piles' sermon inspires Mayor Holden to pick up his rifle and dare the others to join him, but they still hang back, so Piles and the mayor go outside to face the vampires alone. The mayor is shot immediately, and Piles runs back into the saloon, once again daring the townspeople to take up their arms and fight. Finally, Martha grabs her rifle, goes outside, and shoots one of the vampires.
Rayne has managed, in one fell swoop, to drop the weight and slice the
ropes from the necks of the surviving children. She and Billy face each other with their swords. Their fight takes them outside, where Slimebag and Preacher have been killed. Rayne manages to slice the tips off Billy's swords, so he pulls out his guns. Before Billy can shoot Rayne, however, Garret grabs the handle of the Gatling gun and empties the bullets into Billy. Rayne finishes him off with a stake through the heart made from a snapped off fork-handle. The children are reunited with their parents.
The next morning, Rayne prepares to head for Tombstone where Wyatt Earp is having problems battling the Clanton Vampires. Garret offers to join her, but Rayne rides off alone. Garret walks back into Deliverance with the town's new sheriff: Newton Piles.
