Vampiress Review: "Bonnie and Clyde vs Dracula

The Gist:  After a robbery goes wrong Bonnie of the famed criminal duo goes off looking for a doctor and ends up the prisoner of Dracula and his henchman and it's up to Clyde to save her.

Clarification:  This film follows a similar formula to From Dusk Till Dawn in that the bulk of the movie is not vampire related and concentrates on the events that lead up to Dracula's involvement. In fact Bonnie & Clyde pretty much are the Gecko brothers of this film spending the bulk of it robbing and murdering people.   Dracula's introduction to the film comes in the story of a young innocent girl named Annabel who's being forced to do the bidding of her controlling brother who has the body of Dracula and resurrects him for the purpose of possibly using him to cure the disfiguring condition he has.  The two stories then connect when Bonnie goes to Annabelles brother (who is a doctor) for help for their accomplice who was shot during a heist.

Selling Point:  Jennifer Friend as Annabelle is a pretty lovable character.

Female Vampire Factor:  Not going to beat around the bush here and just come out and say it (SPOILER ALERT) Bonnie (Tiffany Shepis) is indeed turned into a vampire by the films end.
Obviously this film isn't very historically accurate but it does have it's entertainment value though not as a horror movie.  The vampire portion of the film is the very end of the film and basically just consists of Clyde and the now turned vampire Bonnie shooting their way through groups of nameless vampires in the doctors mansion after apparently entering the unlimited ammo and no reloading cheat codes. I give it a Vampire Beauty Rating of 3 out of 5.
