Honourable Mentions: Hell Hath no Fury

This is a 2006 low budget portmanteau film and our primary concern here is the wrap-around that was directed by Vince D’Amato called ‘Night Shift at the Coffee Shop”.

The actual film starts with what I guess we could call vignettes and during this we see a vampiress (Janna Jolynn) who is on the phone to a man and dismisses him before turning back to the (fake looking) corpse on her lap. There is someone at the door.

It is a scarred woman (Nicole Hancock, who was an executive producer of Vampires Vs Zombies). The vampiress asks whether she knows her and is punched.

the strangers
That is about all we get. Following this a cowboy attired gentleman (Donny James Lucas) sits uninvited with another man (I think Aidan Smith) in a coffee shop. He starts to tell the man stories and most of these are the substance to the film. Most of the segments are about female revenge (ostensibly) though the first real segment (the vignettes are listed as sections), called Anna Lynn, is as much a man’s revenge and Three Degrees Kelvin is just odd and ill-placed. The man in the coffee shop does mention vampires, however, and states that they are like cobras with venom that injects from the fang.

At the end of the film we discover that the scarred woman is his wife – the ‘psycho woman’ he is waiting for – and how she caught him in bed with a girl who told him she was a vampire. Does she get her revenge? By that point you won’t care and the actual vampire aspect runs for about 2 minutes total (if that) in the whole film. The film is glaringly low budget and not brilliant. A vampire does, however, appear in it.

The imdb page is here.
