Storyline

Count Dracula is in L.A., running a hideous club scene, and he's angry that a rogue vampire, posing as a streetwalker, is slashing. He's also unhappy that Dallas, a youthful undead and former protégé, is in town. The rogue slasher, Nico, serendipitously picks Dallas as a victim; after discovering each other's nature, they become lovers. In fear of the Count, Dallas's coterie urges him to kill Nico, but he refuses. Meanwhile, a Viennese vampire hunter, Van Helsing, arrives in L.A. and hires the Crips to help him. They're soon following Nico and Dallas. When they capture her, Dallas wants to deal: spare Nico and he'll lead the hunters to Dracula. It's time for stake and bake. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Modern Sexy Horror Kicks Butt
9 December 2002 | by shockfilmfestSee all my reviews

Directed by genius horror and B-Movie film maker Richard Elfman, "Modern Vampires" gives me something to sink my teeth into. What can I say, great casting, great lines, great characters, good gore, a little T and A never hurts. I would say that this movie ranks up there with the great horror spoofs "Nudist Colony of the Dead," and "Cannibal the Musical," absolutely one of my favorite films.
