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.

A "B movie" that's fun to watch.
29 April 2001 | by jaybirdaum23See all my reviews

This is NOT a great movie. But I think it is a fun movie. It has an interesting take on the origin of vampires. It's bloody in a very sloppy kind of way. I laughed at a lot of it. Low budget, no name actors, a classic "B Movie" style. WAY better than "John Carpenter's Vampires".
