In Los Angeles, Detective Hank Holten is obsessed by his ex-wife, the writer of vampire novels Susan Hastings, stalking her and having drinking problems. His chief and friend, Captain John Billings, makes him promise to forget her and stop drinking, and assigns Hank to find Layla Simmons, who is missing and without notice to her family. Hank goes to a rave party, finds Layla, they go to an orgy party in an old building, and while having sex with her, Hank finds that the place is a vampire nest. He is bitten by the vampire-leader, but nobody believes on him. He looks for Susan to help him. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Not terrible, just average--hardcore vampire fans might enjoy it
27 May 2005 | by willywantsSee all my reviews

A cop investigating a series of disappearances links them too an abandon building where a cult of vampires are living in the basement. Naturally, his captain doesn't believe him, so it's up to him—and his ex-wife, a vampire novelist—to stop the bloodsuckers before they can kill more people. An average entry in the vampire sub-genre. Acting wasn't as bad as I feared (Lance Henrikson, a wonderful actor in this viewer's opinion, steals the show with his usual straight-faced delivery), the script has its moments (wisely writer/director Richard Brandes never takes the subject matter too seriously) and its even got a couple of fun (albeit hockey) gore scenes. The creature effects, from John Carl Buechler, were okay. I came in to "Vampires: Out For Blood" expecting the worst but it really wasn't that awful. An average horror film, die-hard vampire fans may enjoy it. 4/10.
