Review

Zachary seeks revenge against the clan who crossed him; the abduction of Sofia, a concert pianist lures him to the lair of Ash and his den of vampires living beneath a nightclub in Bucharest, Romania.

It's a very small story, really; most of the sub-plots are contrived padding, and the four characters who carry the story seem to fairly unclear about what's going on, for much of the time. Disappearing folk never alarms the local police, despite the fears of the Vampires' tame club owner, and the 'Master' who is in absolute control of his clan, quite clearly isn't.

Once you take away the overacting, the irrelevant sub-plots and the gothic atmosphere, there's really very little left, except the lovely Kirstin Cerre, as Sofia.

Weirdly, Soifa gives a strong performance with her clothes on, while many of the female cast members have to bare a breast ior two as they are bitten; no - it's not sexy at all; they just look a bit surprised and embarassed.
