Movie Info

A dejected strip club bouncer attempts to atone for the sins of his past by protecting a little girl from a vampiric preacher in Tooth and Nail director Mark Young's moody horror film. Hazel Fortune (Yul Vasquez) is a burnt-out alcoholic who works in a southern strip club. Ever since he caused the death of his daughter, Hazel has fallen into a hopeless cycle of grief and despair. Then, one day, Starla (Nicole DuPort) walks into the club where Hazel works looking for a job. She's not like the other girls in the club, because all Starla wants is to raise enough money to give her daughter Hope a better future. When local fire and brimstone preacher The Reverend sees Starla, he makes it his holy mission to deliver her from evil. Before The Reverend can save Starla's soul, however, he is beset by a gang of wandering vampires and transformed into a night-walking bloodsucker. Now, as Hazel looks after young Hope, The Reverend and his minions set out to raise some serious hell around this sleepy rural town.

A bible belt literally red state vampire thirst quencher, with not so far fetched links between evangelism and vampire mythology. Including an undead born again self-proclaimed resurrected preacher savior promising eternal life to his drained flock.

There's some fairly complex mythology hinted at here and there, but not much is made of it. It's sort of Gothic, but not very Southern. The flick's got bits and pieces and elements of this and that, but there's nothing concrete to glom onto.
