Independent filmmaker Joe Bagnardi shot this lengthy vampire epic on a Super-8 camera he bought from horror film critic John McCarty and a budget of approximately 9,000 dollars. It deals with a vampire hunter known as the Shadow Tracker who is faced with the unpleasant duty of hunting down an old Vietnam War buddy. The veteran has since turned into a savage and bloodthirsty vampire, retaining almost nothing of his former personality. Following a grisly trail of bodies, the Shadow Tracker is the only one who seems to suspect that the horrible deaths plaguing a small town are the work of no ordinary serial killer, and he must put his personal feelings aside as he seeks to end his old friend's reign of terror. Effects artist Ron Rausch co-stars with Bruce G. Hallenbeck, who had directed his own entry in the genre (Vampyre) seven years earlier and worked on a now-defunct smalltown newspaper with the director.
