Vampire gangsters what a concept!

"If quentin tarrantio and anne rice got together and made a vampire movie it would be similar to this film. The makers of the film have made vampires something to fear again in their descriptions of these sociopathic bloodsuckers who live on to feed on the blood of their victims.Another I love about the movie is some of the characters like the reaper, a chilling vampire hitman who's frightened of his neat freak psycho wife. Reaper's wife profanity-laced tirades against her husband are hilarious!The heroine of this movie, a vampire hitwoman who has vendatta against brutal vampire marcel and his girlfriend amy who turned her into a vampire are chilling in it's intensity.I love the dialogue of vampire gangsters Jimmy fangs and his crew who sound like they come straight from a episode of the sopranos.the scenes with Marcel and amy and their hostage, a born again christian who seeks to save amy's soul are great as well.There are no wimpy soul-searching vamps in this movie.All of the vampires in this movie are bloodthirsty who revel in their killing of the victims.Another plus of the movie is sometimes gorgeous camerawork in the movie and the scenes of bloodletting and gruesome violence are shocking but appropiate for this film. This is one of the all-time best vampire movie I ever seen with over-top violence, memorable characters, witty humor and great photography all add up to classic tale of vampiric horror with a dark comic edge."
A brilliant plot concept!!!

"What would you get if you combined the Vampire and Mafia movie genres? Simply put, you'd get "Strange Things Happen at Sundown." The movie so smoothly and easily introduces the concept that if vampires did indeed roam the earth today that the logical progression in their history would be towards organized crime. It just seems to make sense for them. They are not romanticized like other vampire movies. They are portrayed as brutal drinkers of blood that possess no remorse or compassion until of course one of them falls under the charms of a born again Christian. It is a great blending of sadism and humor without over-doing either element. This film is not for the weak of heart as it is a definate gore-fest nor is it for those easily offended by naked, writhing, sensual, hot, erotic(phew I'd better stop), human females.In closing the best compliment that I can pay this film is that it is a micro-budget movie that does a wonderful job of never reminding you of that fact as you watch the film. Enjoy!!!"

"I saw the preview of this film at the NY Film Festival. It is a fantastic glimpse into the lives of vampires walking amoungst our daily activities in New York,including mob vampires,a born again Christian and countless other colorful characters. Though the movie did not lack blood and gore, I enjoyed the dialogue reminiscent of Scorcese and Tarantino. Many twists and turns never before ventured in the vampire genre. The music alone makes the movie worth seeing. Bravo to these young film makers."
Fresh Concept, You love it if your a B Horror movie Fan

"Interesting concept for the plot, but not for the mainstream viewer. I would have giving it 5 stars BUT the twitching of victims was like Chinese water torture. Some movies have needless love scenes, this one has needless, and sometimes endless, twitching. The plot was quite refreshing compared to the endless rehashing of classic vampire tales. It was nice not being able to predict where the story was heading. If you like B Movie horror films, see this movie. But if you want/need the hollywood movie styling (a la Interview with a Vampire), keep looking."
