"I wasn't expecting much out of this low budget vampire flick, but half way through I forgot that I wasn't watching a big studio movie. Cool characters that were well acted, fight scenes where you can actually see what is happening, and great looking monster effects combine to make a film definitely worth watching. This movie has more plot and character development than the last ten Hollywood blockbusters I've seen combined. Definitely worth a look."

"This gives new meaning to the term "horror film". This movie was so horrible that I actually threw it right in the trash. I've never even thought of doing that before. I would have felt terrible if someone else had wasted money on it buying it from me. Bad acting, bad script, bad story, bad effects. Not even any nearly naked vampire girls. No good side at all. Run, don't walk, away from this film!"

"This movie goes in the garage sale pile. The movie was the second worse movie that I have ever seen. The package looked great, but the movie was just plain terrible."

"This was a total disappointment. Acting is really bad and laughable because of it. These people do not act and look ridiculous when they talk, move or a simple thing like standing still looks awful on screen aaagggh. I hated it even though I tried hard to like it, since the visual effects are more or less acceptable and that's about it. Avoid this movie like a plague it is bad and boring too much talking and no action, horror, passion, blood, nothing!!! Or at least nothing that can be believed.
ONE OF THE BEST FROM ASYLUM

I love low budget movies and seem to have a soft spot for a little company called "The Asylum". Don't know why don't I continue to buy their films even though lately most have been, not so good. But when this one first came out I had high hopes since I am a huge vampire fan. Luckily for me this is indeed one of their better ones, at least on some things. I viewed this recently and then again with the commentary and had a great time doing so. The thing about the Asylum is that they get a bad rep for doing the mockbusters, but they do original work as well. Some films they do are good others not so much but I have a good time with em.
A group of vampire hunters are killing the creatures off one group at a time and seem to be doing a good job at it. They are doing so well in fact that the vampires call for a meeting with this group of skilled assassins. It seems they want to renew an old treaty that Dracula once struck with Van Hellsing and all humans. As time went by and Dracula vanished the treaty fell apart but now they want to put it back on here in present day. The leader of the humans thinks this is the best move for both sides and agrees to the terms. Needless to say his team does not agree but they follow suit. But there is a new group of vampires in town lead by a vicious female vampire who starts taking out both sides. So now human and vampire must come together to stop her and her girls.
Writer/director Leigh Scott I think did a great job on an obviously very low budget, the story in particular. The storyline for this film is extremely entertaining and meshes different vampire myths together with ease. I like the way that all the different kinds of vampires from different myths and stories and films were all together in this. I also liked the way it was explained in how and why they are like that. Add in that for the most part the creature effects are on point and you have a really fun flick. Sure some things need work obviously but on the budget I am sure they did the best they could.
The ending as well is very interesting in this film and kinda took me by surprise but it made perfect sense if you were paying attention the whole time. The characters are many and can be a problem at times but for the most part the characters are interesting [even when the actors are not]. From sexy vampires to the classic Nosferatu to the monster looking ones all are here, very nice blend of them all and in a mafia style to like the "Underworld" films. The acting at times though is kinda weak and the dialogue could be better but over all a good time on the coach. The commentary is good with cast and crew alike talking about the film, and some behind the scenes and blooper reels are included.
This was a good release from the Asylum and when compared to other films released by this company this is with out a doubt one of the best. "
