An evil lusty vampire possibly forces himself on a Mexican woman and she has a boy who is half vampire named Casanova. When he looks about ten years old mom kills herself with a large gun. Casanova is suddenly a man and he discovers Alma who has leprosy(!?)and offers her mom and her a chance to live...as a vampire. Alma who looks about 13 years old is his companion and amor (!?). She supplies him with blood from a connection at a blood bank. Casanova says shes a hundred year old 13 year old girl. His dad has three vampires including one named Tex going after Casanova to kill him. Casanova uses a gun with wooden bullets that seems to fire over 20 rounds in order to kill vampires. When two nasty cops give Blanca and the lesbian who loves her a ride in order to do you know what to them out comes Casanova firing his gun many many times to kill the cops. He takes off with Blanca and Alma's not too happy he's spending time with her. He says they have a connection. Casanova sort of lives on a boat where the big battle takes place and Blanca gets pulled into the sea by I think her lesbian lover from before. Alma saves Casanova and they hold each other and sail away. Okay there's little to tell us just what is going on here but young people could care less why it's going on as long as there's fights and gun battles. I really don't like the strong violence against women here but again it seems to fit the style of the movie. The acting is very good especially young Alma who steals the scenes she's in. Nowhere near as gory as Blade it has enough fighting gunfire and crossbows to keep most happy. I've seen vampire movies a lot worse than this one.
