Vampiress Review: "Death Hunter: Werewolves vs Vampires"

The Gist:  After his wife gets taken by vampires a man sets out to rescue her after getting special abilities.

Clarification: In spite of the name of the film there really isn't much werewolf related with the film.  The main protagonist gets bitten by one and when he gets an antidote it gives him superpowers. The beginning of the film is basically a cheap version of From Dusk Till Dawn where the hero and his wife run out of gas in the middle of nowhere and has to stop at a strip club inhabited by vampires.  Once he escapes, the film just throws a lot of randomness at you that's no different than most low budget films of this type that leads to a pretty anti climactic ending. 

Selling Point: Can't really find one.

Female Vampire Factor:  Most of the ones you see suffer from a lot of monster style makeup so they aren't really good to look at.  Occasionally sprinkled in you'll find a few where they obviously ran out of special effects to put on them thankfully.
Otherwise the bulk of the movie is about the hero getting his powers and training with some extra time filler of him meeting some random young people that has no real purpose as far as plot forwarding in the movie. I give this film a Vampire Beauty rating of 2 out of 5.  It's almost a safe bet that if a film has something vs vampires in the title you can pretty much skip it.
