With a plot heavily indebted to John Carpenter's Vampires and also Kathryn Bigelow's Near Dark this is an OK desert vampire movie aimed squarely at the teen market. Surprisingly amount of nudity for an American horror film of this period but all the racy gore scenes are toned down by the use of rapid editing so you can't make out what is going on properly. Vampirism is explicitly associated with AIDS as characters are infected and have to take drugs to delay the "full blown" effects of their bites. Various plot holes abound and some of the exposition is simply laughable - especially a rapid-fire dialogue scene in which the origin of vampirism as deriving from 8 knights in the crusades is explained; the filmmakers would have been better excising this. But, with the vampires just nasty cyphers who kill and be killed (rather than in Near Dark where they were just as nasty but at least properly characterised) and sulky heros who hide their emotions behind their dark glasses (I agree with one of the other posters that there is a hidden subtext that the Kerr Smith character is gay) this is a bit of a bore and I found myself hitting the fast forward button somewhere around the half way mark.
