The Gist: There's a band and they play music and people get killed...that's about it.
Clarification: Another Indy flick that falls into the "great concept, terrible execution" category but then again most vampire movies about bands do (though the TV show Port Charles did a B+ job of it as did Queen of the Damned). Problem with this one is that they try to build a horror movie out of a mock documentary of a real band so it's actually 86 minutes of trying to sell their music to the viewing audience complete with music video's and fake MTV style reporting on them. Sprinkled in between all that is a story about people being murdered by vampires and the FBI interviewing people so basically it's the same format as an episode of Beavis and Butthead just without them mocking the music.
As for the music itself it's not gothic moaning and isn't terrible at all (for the most part) and the music video's are very well put together so it doesn't stop the movie dead like the main problem with Gothic Vampires from Hell which has long periods of nothingness while they sell you the music. If you weren't really paying attention you would probably think the film was about a "Berlin" cover ban. I will warn you if you expect any type of real ending..don't. What I put in the Gist is the entire movie from beginninng to end.
Selling Point: Their music producer looks like the special Olympics drug dealer from South Park. If you put that on the cover I'd be more inclined to buy it...just saying.
Female Vampire Factor: OK here's the thing. Every member of the band Theatre Peace which this film is about is supposed to be a vampire but since they're too busy doing band stuff they never actually do anything vampiric which is sad because two of them are MILF hot.

Outside of that scene I would only recommend watching it if you want to watch music video's of a middle aged rock band. I give this film a Vampire Beauty Rating of 3 out of 5.
