When Ellen Cole goes undercover at a mental asylum to rescue her brother, she is unaware that she is about to encounter her worst nightmares, for St. Mariahs Hospital for the criminally insane holds a dark secret. Deep in the dark recesses of the Asylum, Vampires have been caged for experiments and on this festive night the vampires will rise to draw blood again. Whilst in the hospital ballroom the party guests are blissfully unaware of the horror heading straight for them. With only the help of a whimsical police bobby and a pathalogical killer can Ellen escape the insanity of the Asylum?Written by

This is a film where the excuse of no budget has been ignored. Yes it's obvious there was hardly a budget and a few effects and sets creak a bit ( a lot at some points), but the imagination and sheer determined mind of the director and his actors to simply make an entertaining and sometimes impressive film can't be ignored.
Dialogue clunks and unnecessary subplots tend to distract, but the overall momentum, sense of fun and intelligent undertone stop this from falling into the pit of bad low budget films to a film that has a hell of a lot going for it.
A higher budget will no doubt let these imaginations fly. Bravo!
