"One word of advise: DON'T. Don't even waste $1.00 on rental. This is the worst movie we have ever seen and the $2.00 rental fee we paid was a lost investment since we could not stand the movie long enough to find out the ending. I don't know what the previous guy is smoking to give this movie a three stars review. I would have given it a negative-5-star rating if the web site allows. All actors in the movie tends to yell out their lines with overblown intensity when such intensity was not even call for in most of the situation. Even when such intensity was justified, the actors delivered their lines poorly and you could tell they were merely reciting their lines with increase volume. The movie was more like an amateur student project (with a "F" grade) than a real film. Dialogs were idiotic and unrealistic. I hope the actors did not quit their day job. By the way, the lead actor is also the writer, director and producer of the film. Whoever would invest in him again after seeing this film must be crazy if not stupid. In summary, there is no plot, no talent, no entertainment in this movie. Run away from it as fast as you can."
Worst Script Ever!

"It wasn't the corniness that bothered me. It was the script. A 5 year old could write better. The speech was lame, the come backs were childish, and were did those accents come from. Don't waste your time or money on this on. You want a B vampire movie, rent Fright Night or The Forsaken."
The Worst Movie of 2002, with 37 minutes to spare.

"We rented this one on VHS tonight, and...it's just BAD. If you rent this movie, you can expect to see:The best Acting/Directing/Writing/Producing hat trick since "Plan 9 From Outer Space."
The worst fake Texas (Arkansas? Generic American Redneck?) accent ever;
A six minute long (!) expositional monologue about how HIV, Carbon Monoxide, evolution and Vampires are all related;
The first kevlar bullet-proof vest ever conceived, designed and delivered in 10 seconds, which naturally enhances the male bosom;
The best semi-high speed rented car chase ever;
Eminiem's dramatic portrayal of a gay vampire;
The use of photoshop-level special effects to create fake gun flashes;
Proof that watching too much Highlander or playing too many roleplaying games can adversely affect your filmmaking skills;
The quickest recovery from a gunshot to the knee in movie history;
A chance to play 'spot the wire' with your friends;
Fake blood...now! Okay, more. I said more! MORE!!!
and 'We can't afford explosions but we can use dramatic lighting to imply them'.The scenes filmed in the real molecular biology lab took countless MINUTES away from the search for a cure to MS, or HIV, or, or, Psoriasis, and the producers, directors, actors and writers (all one person!) should pay with their (his) life.Happy New Year! Word to my undead molecular biology homies! Ed out.*Note that no real Eminems were used in the making of this movie."

"I adore the vampire genre; I'm used to keeping my expectations in check so that I can sit through just about anything in hopes it might have some redeeming qualities. Sadly, this was a waste of my time. I'm glad I got it through Netflix so I can't actually pin a precise dollar value to the disappointment.
Best thing about the movie: as another reviewer touched on, man-candy. Attractive, well-built (sometimes shirtless) boys playing with swords, sticks, guns and occasional grappling. But that is less than 5% of the movie, so it really isn't a strong enough point to recommend it.
Worst things about the movie: the plot, the lack of plot, the bad acting, the terrible script, the goofy special effects. At 90 minutes, it was way too long. But it wasn't even 90 minutes: the first 3.5 minutes and the last 5 were credits rolling. Subtract another minute or so from longest female performance in the movie (a gal in a suit and heels screaming, panting, and running away from a 'monster') and we're down to 80 minutes of "is it over yet?"
The movie seemed to be 1) framing for a long speech at the end of the movie from the evil vampire that ties together HIV, climate change, and why vampires are dying out; and 2) an excuse for the filmmakers to get their friends together so they can practice their fake accents to yell lines at each other while wearing the bitching-awesomest costumes. If conceived by adolescents, the plot probably would probably be middle-of-the-road in a high school drama class. But these are grown men who are gleefully writing, directing, producing, and acting in their little project. Or maybe I'm wrong and most microbiologists keep guns and swords at home.
Some reviewers have said the director's commentary offers valuable insight to budding filmmakers. Sorry, I already wasted 90 minutes of my life watching the movie; I'm not about to volunteer another hour and a half. And it isn't even bad in the way a B movie is often bad... the only thing that made me groan was the ridiculous attempt at a car chase. The rest was just lackluster dreadful."
