It's 1933 and prohibition has proven very profitable for corrupt cops like Jack Malone. He collects 'luxury tax' from every bootlegger and scofflaw in town. Shaking down the newly opened speakeasy should've been simple, but instead, Jack and his men uncover a clan of vampires hell bent on taking over the town.
After a fruitless nationwide search for an authentic 1930s police car, the car wrangler came across a "barn find" of a 1931 Ford Model A that had not been started for 15 years. The rapid 1-month restoration was completed just in time for the first day of shooting. Miraculously, the 85-year old car ran for 7-straight hours without stalling or overheating. See more »
Ad around 1h 21min in, one of our heroes plants a wooden stake in the left shoulder of a vampire, the next scene shows it miraculously moved to the center of the chest. See more »
What can I say? The concept alone is right off the SyFy channel. However, the acting of a few of the characters was decent. Ice-T was better than expected. Mike MacFeddan was a not too bad as the crooked cop. Peter Patrakios chewed up the scenery with no control over his inner monologue. Chris Jame Boylin was a sexy beast who's handyman skills made the movie worth watching.
Surprisingly, the movie was better than expected and the end built to a fulfilling climax. It wasn't a waste of time after all... I may even watch it again.
