review by
Mike Haberfelner

All Alice (Shelby Hightower) ever wanted was to be a top chef - and she sure had both the talent and the training for it, but after she had done time for manslaughter and on top of that has a nasty scar across her face, nobody but cheap burger places want to hire her anymore - and she manages to get fired even from those. Then though she crosses paths with Charles, who makes her an offer too good to be true, a job as chef at a very secretive club that pays more than she ever could have imagined. Thing it, it actually is true, only one thing Charles forgot to mention, Alice would be preparing food for the Vampire Queen (Brenna Carnuccio) and her followers. This of course is cause to worry, on the other hand as long as Alice pleases the Vampire Queen, she's under her protection and safe from any vampire attacks. And Alice is pretty good at her job, so chances are she will please the Vampire Queen a long time. So why not just doing what she loves to do for really good pay? Plus, the Vampire Queen even makes her nasty scar disappear. Problem is, the vampire world as such is far from homogenous, and the Vampire Queen has her enemies, from Alice's own kitchen hand (Chris James Boylan) to rogue vampire Kieran (Aaron Dalla Villa) to the Queen's former favourite (Danielle Muehlen). And soon Alice realizes if she doesn't take things into her own hands she's sure to be dragged into a vampire war she has nothing to do with ...


A rather fresh take on the vampire genre, this time crossing it with culinary comedy - a genre that has its dark corners as well for sure. And the combination works, basically because writer/director Dan Lantz takes his story's horror seriously and does get visceral every now and again during the course of the movie, and the comedy pretty much adds to the proceedings by helping the suspension of disbelief, making the too far fetched elements somewhat plausible, and keeping the dialogue poignant. And in the hands of a capable ensemble cast carried by a tight directorial effort, this combination has turned out to be pretty enjoyable genre entertainment.
