A virtual remake of Katt Shea Ruben's existentialist vampire opus Dance of the Damned, this direct-to-video item revisits the tale of a brooding bloodsucker (Scott Valentine) who befriends a suicidal stripper (Charlie Spradling), reveals his sanguinary intentions to her, and entices her to enjoy the dark pleasures of immortality. Where Ruben's film rose above exploitation status through believable performances, well-written dialogue, and artful camerawork, this pointless remake chooses instead to wallow in the seamier elements of its subject matter: nudity, copious gore, and the occasional violent action sequence. Leads Valentine and Spradling are incapable of elevating the material with convincing performances.
