Plot Summary

Driving cross-country to deliver a vintage Mercedes, Sean (Kerr Smith) does the one thing he wasn't suppose to do -- pick up a hitchhiker. From that moment on, his road trip is transformed into a surreal and terrifying nightmare. Sean's new companion, Nick (Brendan Fehr), is not the laid back, aimless traveler he seems to be. He is a hunter. And his prey is a roving band of forsaken youths who feed upon hapless victims found in the dead of the night -- in a word, vampires.

    This flashy fright flick doesn't break any new ground, but puts an attractive gloss on genre conventions. show more

    Writer-director J.S. Cardone's low-budget mishmash offers precious little in the way of thrills and chills, much less coherent storytelling.

    Vampire movies aren't what they used to be. How about a little mist, some shadows, some pale gray faces set off by stark red lips? Maestro, a little Transylvanian mood music, if you please. show more
