Story When a vampire epidemic takes over the world Martin (Paolo) and his family are trying to escape, when vampires attack and kill his family. Mister (Damici) saves Martin and takes him on the road to a safer place.


Meeting different people some good Sister (McGillis), Belle (Harris) and Willis (Nelson). Some bad Jabedia (Cerveris) and his brotherhood of religious followers. They come across towns of people who have continued to live what can be called normal life and others that are abandoned.


This horror thriller will keep you guessing all the way through from start to finishes.


Verdict The surprise package of a movie here you see the word vampire and you think well watch we know the outcome. No this plays out like a zombie movie with vampires and every trick to kill them becomes more of a reality check. Every single horror fan will enjoy this as it offers everything you would like to see in a new generation horror film. Everything seems to have a very real aspect.
