New Film: Rise 2

I’ve heard that there is to be a sequel to Rise: Blood Hunter. From what I can gather there will be a whole new cast, as they are all new characters and the story has been written by Ben Ketai – who was involved in the webisodes of 30 Days of Night: Blood Trails.

Synopsis, lifted from Upcoming Horror Movies, is: “While searching for the truth about their parents' disappearance, sexy 23-year-old Lexi Stone and her younger brother are taken captive by the cult of vampires. Lexi awakens to learn that she has become one of them and is now trapped in a strange world of carnal seduction and bloodlust. Lexi must find the strength to overcome temptation and become a hard-boiled warrior to save her brother.”

I was really disappointed with the first "Rise". The lack of fangs has always been a pet peeve of mine. I'm hoping the second one corrects that movie.

swish I can understand the lack of fangs being a peeve - although it doesn't bother me too much (I love the hunger and near dark and neither had fanged vampires).

I would ask, whether you saw the 90 min theatrical release or the nearly 2 hour DVD release? I understand that many were disapointed with the theatrical release. I really enjoyed the DVD version.
