New York City is one of the prime breeding grounds for the vampire, a creature that is very selective in whom it chooses to bestow the gift of eternal life. Among the candidates are the twenty-something Tricia, who desires to experience any life but her own; Jonathan, a young vampire with an attitude problem; and, of course, a few serial killer types like Joel Winter, who search for something beyond their psychopathic lives... But there's one problem--a rogue vampire who is turning people who aren't worthy of "The Gift"--and it's up to Angie Karnstein to find her sister and put an end to these creatures with the tainted blood.Written by
Kevin Lindenmuth is a truly talented filmmaker who can do more with a smaller budget than Joel Schumacher could do with all the money in the world. The Addicted To Murder series proves this beyond a shadow of a doubt.
Addicted To Murder: Tainted Blood finds serial killer turned vampire slayer, Joel Winter, hunting the streets in search of his lost love Rachel. Huh? You make ask. Didn't Joel kill Rachel in part one.
When the film opens it seems confusing to anyone who may have seen the original film. At the end of that Addicted To Murder, if you recall, Joel has killed Angie and goes on to kill Rachel in an attempt to redeem his damned soul. So when the second one picks up, it doesn't make any sense. However, if you recall in the original, it jumps ahead from the point where Joel realizes that he is a vampire to the point where he has appointed himself a slayer. Tainted Blood attempts to fill in the blanks.
It succeeds, incredibly, in doing something that I wonder has ever been done before in film history. I've seen prequels and sequels, but never a film that fills in the years between one point and another, in a completely different film. Usually filmmakers place this extra footage at the end of a DVD or video in a sick attempt to tease the audience. But this is original and it works.
The ending has already been shown to the audience in the original film, it's just a matter of going along for the ride and watching our makeshift hero's transition from prey to hunter.
What a grand ride it is, indeed! Kevin Lindenmuth I salute you!
