It should have been the greatest of nights for Lily (Deann Baker): Not only did she party like it was 1999 at the club, she also pulled the most handsome guy in the room and the two took to a motel together to ... well, there's where Lily's memory went totally blank, but when she woke up in the morning, she found the motel room and herself totally covered in blood, and felt totally drained.

Now Lily's at home, trying to find out what's wrong with her, why she can't eat or drink, why her temperature is abnormally low and the like. And neither her brother (Andrew Jacob DeHart) not her best friend (Danielle Doetsch) are of any help. So Lily decides the one thing to do would be to track down her "dream date" from the other day, figuring if anybody knows what's going on it must be him ... but at the club she doesn't find him but two of his "acquaintances" (Terry Bell, Malcom Banks), who throw her into the hood of their car and kidnap her with the intention of killing her somewhere out in the country. Thing is, quite unbeknowest to herself at that time, Lily has the gifts of superhuman strength and speed, so one of her abductors (Banks) ends up dead soon while she tortures the truth out of the other: She isn't human anymore but has been turned into a vampire. Of course, she doesn't believe this, but at the same time it's the only logical explanation for everything ... especially for her extreme bloodthirst.

But how is she to deal with such life-changing circumstances?

 

Vampire films these days are a dime a dozen, but this one's a film with a difference, not making the vampire the hero, lover or villain of the piece, but the victim, a woman tortured by the fact of being turned into something she doesn't understand and growing with the experience. This all works thanks to a very compelling and nuanced performance by Deann Baker (who's in next to every shot of the movie) but also thanks to a well-structured screenplay that gives the story its time to expand at a deliberately slow pace, and a directorial effort that invariably prefers atmosphere after sheer spectacle.

Definitely not your typical vampire movie - but one that will freak you out all the more just because of it ...

 

If you're interested, and you should be, this movie will be available from April 7th, 2015 from here: http://www.drivethrurpg.com/browse/pub/7890/BloomFilm-LLC
