Release date: 2004
By ‘eck, this should not have worked… never in a million years. However, despite itself, I found myself enjoying this. Ok, its low, low budget combined with a barely constructed storyline but…
The credits moved me first of all. Piano floats above very well photographed images of books and candles. We hit an issue amongst all this, as we see extracts from the so called vampire scrolls, as we see text mentioning the bloodletting, as we see the symbol of vampire society… well we start to believe that there might be a deeper storyline occurring within this movie. It is further into the film proper when we realise that… well its all smoke and mirrors. The bloodletting is mentioned as is moving in shadows but generally all that was an ethereal phantasm of a story, as elusive as the infamous Scotch mist.

Crystal (Jody Marie) and her friends are arranging a night out. She is on the phone to Amanda (Molly Fix) and tells her to bring her new beau, Johnathan (Jeremy Dunn). Also in the house are Rachael (Amanda Lea) and Meg (Caroline Blackwell). Over at a pool we see Theo (Mark Westerdale), the camera slow-motions as he flicks his hair, he ain’t no stud and, when he speaks in a British accent we realise, he’s not really an actor either… sorry, just the way it is. He is at the pool with Mark (Orlando McGuire) – Rachel’s boyfriend – and Derek (Shaun Paul Piccinino) – Crystal’s boyfriend.
