VAMPIRES
OUT FOR BLOOD

The cover of this movie is great, plus the fact that it has Lance Henriksen written across the top of it also helps in making the sale. I bought this movie at one point at a Hollywood Video expecting a pretty cool movie, I wasn't too disappointed. The film on looks alone promises a lot and only delivers on some, which makes it a decent movie. But hey Lance Henriksen wanted to do this movie so that says something, right?

The story is about a sleazy drunk detective who is stalking his ex wife, who happens to be a vampire expert and famous author. We start off with Hank telling a psychiatrist about what happened to him because apparently things didn't work out for him. From here he is put on a case to find a missing girl, who as you can guess is a vampire. He is lead to the feeding grounds of the vampires and is bitten by the leader, who looks like a mix of the Salem's lot type vampire and something out of Star Wars. Of course he tries to get his ex to help him and a lot of bad things start to happen to both of them from this point on.

Writer/Director/Producer Richard Brandes has crafted a pretty decent little independent horror film. In fact on the production side of things there is really nothing wrong with this film. Brandes obviously really put a lot of work into this film, and the score and camera work are really good especially for this type of film. Problems come from the acting side of this film, not all are bad but not all are good. Vanessa Angel in particular does not come off as completely believable in this film, in fact in scenes were she is supposed to be excited or scared she over sells it. Kenneth Colom is just annoying at the beginning of this movie, but gets a little better later in the film, in the hotel scene he is pretty funny actually. Kevin Dillon is real good in this film, but for the first 10 to 15 minutes his character is completely unlikable. Really it is after the vampire scenes were he is bitten do we start to like him. Lance Henriksen As usual is great as the police chief, he really pulls out a good performance in this little b movie.

This movie while not a classic does have it's moments, the ending is brilliant. And there is some tension that is built up real well at times, it's a pretty good movie. Over all I would say as far as these types of films go it is up there, check it out and go rent it.
