Irresponsible stupidity from Troma.
28 July 2003 | by capkronosSee all my reviews

Yan Birch (who resembles Malcolm McDowell) is Anthony, a modern-day vampire who uses his rock band's popularity as a front to lure unsuspecting big-breasted women into his clutches. Reed (Alex Erkiletian) is his annoying necrophile henchman/assistant who dresses up the corpses in bondage gear and lingerie before screwing them and dumping the bodies off at his work ("Western Tumor Medical Group"). The very sexy, fit, blue-eyed Vanessa Van Helsing (Monica Barber) is on to the deadly duo. She tricks Anthony into biting her and intentionally transmits AIDS to him, which means Anthony "can't digest" blood and will die a slow and agonizing death.

This morality/cautionary horror tale has no idea how to handle its themes in an effective or thought-provoking way and the comic sound effects and stupid gags undermine any serious messages the filmmakers are trying to get across.

In case you're interested...Also featured are the PUMPKINHEAD prop monster, a pool sex scene, blood puking, a redheaded sorceress (the devil?) who torments Anthony and can revive dead bodies and lots of rock music by groups with names like Groovie Ghoulies and The Mr. T Experience.

Score: 2 out of 10
