A series of murders dubbed vampire murders because all the victims are left behind drained of blood leaves the town baffled - all but comicbook store owner and conspiracy theorist Ronny (Michael Barra), who soon  has a pretty good idea who the vampire is, Anna (Elise Rovinsky), a rude customer to his store who goes out primarily at night and keeps blood in her fridge. However, instead of going to the police, Ronny figures he'll use her to get famous, by getting a video-confession out of her that she's a real vampire, then sell the tape to television stations and at the same time rocking the science world.

Ronny soon captures Anna and cages her up at a historic site he is housesitting - but somehow Anna just won't confess to being a vampire, she won't drink the blood he's trying to feed her, won't admit defeat ... of course, it never comes to Ronny's mind that that might just be because she's no vampire ...

Ronny hires two thugs he knows from school, part time rapist Karl (Cuyle Carvin) and his sidekick Eddie (Joseph Kathrein) to help out. Eddie tags along because he's just terribly gullible and believes every word Ronny is saying, while Karl is convinced that Ronny is full of shit, but being a rapist he couldn't care less for the well-being of the caged woman, and furthermore he figures he could make a fortune ransacking the antiques of the house they're all in.

The threat of the thugs doesn't work at all on Anna, because on one hand she knows that confessing to be a vampire would by no means improve her situation, on the other because Ronny wouldn't let Eddie and Karl come too close to his captive, fearing she could create a bloodbath. So Ronny figures they need a woman - as in someone Anna can relate to - to make Anna talk. Unfortunately, the only woman they can trust is Eddie's air-brained 16 year old sister Trippy (Jackie Shea), a girl who can talk relentlessly without really saying anything, and who has a very poor grasp of the situation at hand ... and instead of Trippy making Anna confess, Anna by and by convinces Trippy to free her.

Trouble start brewing when an evangelist and the owner of the place Ronny's housesitting come to close to the truth and have to be killed, and a nosey detective (Madeline Reed) investigating Anna's disappearance starts snooping around ...

Pretty original film that might be based on a pretty far-fetched and slightly silly premise - but it plays it straight, like your typical, streamlined suspense tale that favours narrative development over the actual premise ... and at the same time the film is totally aware of its plot's irony, and highlights that not with cheap jokes but colourful characters and poignant dialogue - and a more than competent ensemble cast and a compact and effective directorial effort certainly don't hurt the movie one bit.

Recommended, actually.
