While wrapping up their latest mission, Nat gets bitten by something the locals refer to as the "Vampire Demon."

The former friends face each other in a final confrontation ...

Review

It's pretty much a stop-go effort; plenty of standard action, punctuated by excessive speechifying. If the plot had more depth, and we could relate to the characters, it could have been good. But I watched it 20 hours ago, and I'm having real difficuty remembering it.

The DVD

Director, writer, producer, and editor Keven VanHook is joined by his technical crew on the commentary, and the discussion is, as you might guess, largely technical. As is frequently the case, the fact that the movie is very low-budget makes for a large number of amusing anecdotes, and the commentary is often more interesting than that for much bigger movies.

There is more commentary available for the single deleted scene and the four special effects scenes (which are broken down and anatomized).

There is also a storyboard gallery, and the trailers included are for Frost, The Pool, Legion of the Dead, Hell's Gate and Dracula: The Dark Prince.

The menu's main page, intro and transitions are animated and scored, but the other pages are silent and still.
