Michael has a great life. He performs in a rock and roll band as well as producing other local acts. He lives in a beautiful mansion with his love, his sister and a few close relatives.
Oh, one more thing... he is a vampire and is more than 300 years old.
The his lover suddenly becomes ill after drinking tainted blood. An occult expert and an anthropologist are consulted to help the family prepare for the first recorded vampire funeral.
This story deals with how a family of vampires deals with the death of a supposedly 'immortal' creature. It has interesting overtones into the subjects of death and of AIDS, which is enough to give the average vampire-groupie pause before considering joining the ranks of the undead.
One of the secondary characters is a man who has a sexual attraction to the lead male vampire. At one point in the film, they have sex together, but this scene does not seem to have a correlation to the rest of the plot.

This film has a balance to it. We see a gay scene betweem two men, yet we see Lenore nursing one of these men who works for the head vampire, and wants to be turned. (I've never seen that before in any picture) In another scene we see two women enjoying dressing each other before the funeral of the dead vampire. (A bit of lesbian play)
There is also an international element to all this. One woman being turned speaks German, while another woman sings a Celtic Lullaby in Gaelic, the dying Vampire speaks in an Indian (India) language and finally the guard speaks Spanish. This is also something I never saw in a 'B' Vamp flick. What I really liked is the fact that I didn't get bored watching this movie. The locations changed frequently and the music is fabulous. The acting is above normal for these types of films. Matt Locker is a natural for the vampire part, Tony Rugnetta and Cathy Loch ranks high on the talent list as well as Deana Demko. The ending is wild! Don't miss this flick, get it NOW.
