Synopsis by Mark Deming
A cop transforms himself into a creature of the night to defeat evil in this blend of action and horror. Derek Washington (Ron Hall) is a police detective who has battled his fear of blood (as well as the troubling memory of his father's death at the hands of criminals) to become a rising star on the force. Derek is attempting to bring down counterfeiting kingpin Gustoff Slovak when a bust turns into a massacre that reveals Slovak's secret -- he's actually a vampire, and the leader of a cult of the undead. Determined to bring Slovak's unholy reign to an end, Derek seeks out Master Kao, a legendary vampire hunter, and attempts to learn the ways of his foe, ultimately coming to the disturbing conclusion that he will have to become a vampire if he is to defeat Slovak. Vampire Assassins also stars Gerald Okamura and Rudy Ray Moore.
