Plot Summary:
"Stephen and Ian are ruthless drug lords who are in the middle of a war with their rival Billy Rae Douglas. One night Stephen and Ian escort two girls home with them whom actually seem to be stranger than they are. The next morning they wake up and the girls are gone and Stephen and Ian are not feeling so well and soon find out their lives have been changed forever. They find out that the girls were actually Angels that infected them with a vampire type virus. In exchange for immortality, Stephen and Ian along with the other hordes of Vampires, are to kill off the human race so that the Angels can take back what should have been theirs. The Vampires begin their slaughter until the Demon world steps in to put an end to the Angel's plans, for the Demons are satisfied with the way the three worlds co-exists."

Hard Gore have uncovered something of a hidden gem with this low budget tale of two drug dealers turned vamps, caught in the middle of an ongoing battle between angels and demons.

Judging by the quality of the film, I thought this was a recent production, but to my surprise this was filmed in 1997. Considering that it's now 8 years old it looks great, and the lengths these guys went to to make something worthwhile are certainly appreciated.

Basically, this was a two man project and Brian Paulin and Rich George of Morbid Vision Films should be proud of their accomplishments, as they went above and beyond the call of duty to ensure that they delivered something a little bit different.

Instead of running about the woods with a camera, they designed some sweet effects, crashed cars, blew things up, built models and even built an entire set outdoors to create the illusion that they crashed through someone's house.

The guys do really well in action mode, and even do decent acting jobs to boot, but their weaknesses are apparent in the script which becomes a little repetitive towards the end.

More work on the softer side of film production would have benefitted the production greatly, but this is a hard as nails horror flick for the dudes!! Even the chicks (who are easy on the eye) are rough in this. It has it's flaws like any other work, and the story drags a little, but it's certainly action packed.

OVERALL SUMMARY
This really surprised me and these guys get a 5 for effort alone. I'm surprised that we haven't heard more about them, as Tom Savini's a fan, and I myself will be keeping my eyes peeled for more of their work. If your local boozer has sawdust on the floor and you remove beer bottle tops with your teeth, you'll dig this.
