Highly Original Vampire Movie
28 August 1999 | by CarrigonSee all my reviews

If you're looking for a vampire movie that's a little different, this is it. This movie is a total classic. It's about a cult of humans who keep a farm of other humans and milk them for their blood. This cult abducts a woman who is the direct descendant of their founder, Elizabeth Bathory. The poor woman is horrified at the vampirism and the cult continually tries to force her into drinking blood. It's a wonderful, creepy, scary, weird vampire film. This one is a must see for you vampire enthusiasts.
