This is for my mother.
19 March 2011 | by (Leesburg, FL) – See all my reviews

This certainly isn't Twilight, as we at least get to see some nice charlies on Arielle Vandenberg before she was bitten.

The action takes a hiatus as we wade through the love story of Amy (Ginny Weirick) and Dan (Chris Divecchio). Dan has a secret that will make this love affair difficult.

Seems Dan's daddy (Max Ryan) is looking for him, and he's one bad dude. He leaves a trail of gore wherever he goes.

Lots of good favorites to keep you interested: Maria Conchita Alonso as the Sheriff, Sid Haig as Crazy Louis, and Billy Drago as an ex-cop that knows Bender (Ryan) first hand.

Has no one here heard of silver bullets?
