Vampiress Review: "The Bleeding"

The Gist: A guy finds out that his brother who he thought was killed in Afghanistan has returned and is now the leader of a group of vampires and he's the only one who can stop him.

Clarification: This is basically Blade lite.  Actually in all honesty it looks much more like the XXX porn "Dark Angels 2" (which in itself is a Blade knockoff) but without the porn obviously.  The film takes place from the end and then backtracks to show how the characters got to that point.  In spite of the fact that the film description given for it talks about the brother going to war etc.  None of that is in the film and is barely even important to the plot which takes place well after the guy is presumed dead (just in case you believe there is some drama elements to in the film which there aren't).

The bulk of the film is a beat em up action flick with most of it really just being an extended version of the night club scene at the beginning of the original Blade movie.

Selling Point: It's very fast paced.

Female Vampire Factor:  The Vampire brood has quite a few as it's a pretty large group.  This is very apparent toward the end of the film when you have the "Blade" knockoff dance club scene.
Other than that only two get any repeat screen time.  That being the character Vanya played by Kat Van D
 and Katya played by Sindy Espitia
There roles are basically the brides to the main vampire in the film and are seen in most of the scenes in which people are being bitten or tortured as background characters.
 It's not a terrible movie especially if you're into the SyFy channel style films as this contains a lot of the D list celebs you'd find in those movies.   I give it a Vampire Beauty Rating of 3 out of 5.  If you have nothing better to do and it's on TV check it out.
