Not bad vampire thriller. When
a cop, played by Kevin Dillon, investigates strange disappearances in town
he finds a lot more than he bargained for and after getting bitten by an
ancient vampire, realises he has only 24 hours to find out about the disappearances
and find those responsible before he becomes a vampire himself. Although
this has a bit of a budget, made for TV feel at times, it's pretty good
and has some scares and moments of gore.
From a review by Adam M.
Average straight-to-DVD effort here. Nice to see Kevin Dillon and Lance
Henrikson do their thing, but overall they could not elevate the quality
of this film above dull. It's not terrible - I've seen much worse - but
it lacks imagination.
From a review by WrenchLT
Could've / should've been much better. Interesting plot with a neat twist
or two, but weakend by the rather hammy acting of the hero, and a
pretty leaden script all round. You'd have thought the producers would
have objected to the hero's coincidental marriage to THE expert on vampires,
which must be the weakest plot device for 17 years (Twilight's various
slips notwithstanding) ... maybe
they didn't read that far?
