This horror-comedy from director Steve Latshaw is a lot funnier than his better-known Jack-O (1995) and has a lot more interesting ideas. The fact that most of these ideas have to do with a bulimic vampire (writer Patrick Moran) who noisily and copiously vomits blood after every meal will probably keep this film away from all but those with strong stomachs, but it's a clever concept. An epileptic psychic and a drunken detective investigate murders at the Twin Palms trailer park in Florida, although they spend much of their time in strip clubs. A subplot concerns the trailer park owner hiring a couple to kill off the older residents by staging fake burglaries which frighten them to death. The vampire (an 18th century plantation owner) moves to the trailer park with his strange aunt and begins biting and vomiting (and vomiting and vomiting) his way through the park as well. It's all really silly and in very bad taste, but its gleeful sickness gives it an endearingly perverse charm.
