Sean is driving cross-country to deliver a vintage Mercedes and attend his sister's wedding when he picks up hitchhiker Nick, who just happens to be a vampire hunter, tracking down a group of youthful vampires who feed on unwary travelers. They run into Megan, who has been left for dead by the vampires. As they use her as a lure for the vampires, Sean becomes attracted to her. After Sean is infected with the vampire virus, he, Megan and Nick must race against time to kill the vampire leader Kit to stop Sean from becoming one of the undead.

Trivia

Most of the movie was shot in and around a small desert town, Wellton, AZ, just east of Yuma, AZ. The hotel is still there and the gas station/store is the local mechanic shop. Wellton's population is just under 2,000 until the winter when "snow birds" from Canada and Northern States stay for the mild, warm winter weather then the population explodes to nearly triple. Wellton is also one of the top 5 hottest places in the world during the summer where temps can rise well into the 120's. See more »

Goofs

When they are driving through the desert and Sean asks him to throw the beer can out, when he tosses it you can clearly see it is crumpled, but when it hits the cops car its still a smooth can and rolls right off the hood. See more »

Kerr....
7 July 2003 | by Bradley-drakeSee all my reviews

I'm not a fan of Dawsons Creek, by that I mean I never got to see it but if I can ever watch it I will, but I have heard of Kerr Smith and it was the only reason I watched this movie. What I found, however was actually a really good and in parts scary, sexy, vampire movie. People say it's not original, I think it is. The vampire lore has been modernised (modernized) very well in certain tv shows, but Forsaken Desert Vampires really did scare me, and I felt something for the poor people who I felt were just like me in this horror nightmare being chased by vampires. If you dont like great acting, scary scenes, drama or great music than don't watch this movie, cause it has it all. Plus it has Kerr in a singlet and cars, what else do you need?? I was 17 when I first saw it, and think it's great for people in and around that age bracket.
