a small peaceful town of Allburg where
crimes were removed, two teenage girls
named Lucy Barrett (Ami Dolenz) and Cindy
Thompson (Maya McLaughlin) go to a crypt
where the dead lies and decides to
explore the place. But Cindy's necklace
which is a crucifix awakens a vampire
leader down there named Czakyr (David
Sawyer) as he grabs a hold of her when
Suddenly the town is inhibited by
vampires or helpless victims.
A school teacher named Mark Gardner
(Peter DeLuise) rescues Lucy from her
Grandma (Shirley Spiegler Jones) who has
become a vampire herself while a precher
named Frank Adlin (Evan MacKenzie) who
has his daughter Cindy locked up as well
as his wife Karen Thompson (Karen Black)
as the two of them haven't been the same
since Czakyr got a hold of Cindy and
fearing for his life as well.
It's up to Mark and Lucy to hunt down
Czakyr and try to put an end to him so
their little town can be back to normal.
This film had both
comedy and horror tied into one which
works well as it almost used the same
chemistry as The Midnight Hour.
There's good dark setting adding alot of
tongue and cheek too with some low budget
settings too which was well done.
However, the story almost doesn't get to
the point and starts to become bland too
when you think something exciting is
going to happen. However there are bits
of interesting moments with some battling
at the crypt etc.
We have some
fairly good performances by the whole
cast knowing their timing quite well.
Karen Black really knew how to act
outrageous as a vampiress and had that
Exorcist type of attitude to her
Ami Dolenz portrayed her role well
as an innocent teenage girl trying to
escpae the madness around her.
MacKenzie does his part well as an
intense preacher in the film and showed
great troubled actions.
David Sawyer really proved his point
well as a freaky demonic head vampire
with his evil looks.
Shirley Spiegler Jacobs had her
comedic timing perfectly as a grandmother
vampiress bringing her words out well.
Josette DiCarlo only had a few
scene's in the film as a female cop but
yet proved to be a natural character
Child actor Lloyd J. Kalicki as
someone trying to help the vampires out
was incredibly annoying and should've
been played by someone else.
Many people are
stabbed through the chest with a wooden
stake and other deadly objects too.
A face is sliced off
Tony Randell does
an impressive job blending both dark
comedy and horror into one with all the
scene's and his actors.
At first his dialogue with two supporting
actors named Roger Perkovich and
Daniel Arthur Wray as town
locals looked very off and extremely
corny along with some other scene's but
it does pick up.
There is a nice scene with actresses
Ami Dolenz and Maya McLaughlin swimming
in a crypt as Randell makes you
cringe wondering why they would be
There's a good shot of a crucifix
necklace floating down underwater
lighting up and a great shot on
supporting actor David Sawyer as
a vampire with his eyes opening
underwater and a great shot on him rising
and grabbing McLaughlin as she
does well struggling and screaming too.
Evan MacKenzie really knew how to
act intense and unstable when he was
talking to Peter DeLuise's
character on what's going on.
There is a good shot on Karen Black
as a vampiress caressing MacLaughlin about
to bite her neck.
We have a nice dark setting with
DeLuise and Shirley Spiegler
Jacobs in the house as it looks too
still and quiet which is great formula
with the direction involved with them as
you know something is going to happen.
While this is happening there's a great
shot on Dolenz acting nervous
staring through a peep hole.
We have a nice battle with DeLuise
and Jacobs after she reveals
being a vampire which was a great and
suspenseful shot when she attacks and the
humor looks good too during this moment.
A good setting on DeLuise and Dolenz
in their car while being pulled over
and a nice shot on supporting actress Josette
DiCarlo as an officer peeking at
their window talking to them.
There's a great dialogue between
DiCarlo and Dolenz in the
police car which looked peaceful.
A perfect reaction on Dolenz
when Jacobs seems so concerned
but psysically menacingly dragging her in
A good shot on DeLuise when he
crashes through a house window.
There's nice and intense emotions with Black
chained to a bed trying to act like
she's possessed and irritating.
Good shots on the supporting cast as
vampires at a bar with their looks etc.
but yet the whole scenerio with it looked
way too cheesy.
There is a nice shot on Perkovich
crashing through a floor and grabbing a
hold of Dolenz
A perfect shot on Black's hand
going underneath the door first showing
claws and then her normal hand.
A nice shot on Black with a
white gown and the air breezing through
looking angelic like.
There's a good dialogue between Dolenz
and McLaughlin speaking to one
another through a window as there's a
nice navy blue shot on them.
DeLuise showed nice and intense
anger while battling the vampires and
being a hero.
A perfect shot on Sawyer with
his head swimming toward Dolenz
and Dolenz really knew how to
The music was nicely and
classically done composed by Daniel
Licht who is especially impressive
with the closing credits to the film.
