Vampiress Review: "Ekimmu: The Dead Lust"

The Gist: A Couple is haunted by visions after helping a young woman stranded in the middle of nowhere who ends up being a murder victim returned from the dead as a vampire.

Female Vampire Factor: So a couple pick up a girl named Sarah who was reported missing and take her home after finding her bloody on the side of the rood.  They take her home where as soon as the female of the couple "Beth" leaves Sarah begins to seduce the guy "Steven".
Eventually Beth catches this they argue (in fact they argue a good majority of the film) Beth leaves.  Eventually Sarah calls to Beth giving very vague hints of a previous life.  Apparently she was a girl named Mary who was murdered by her boyfriend via strangulation.  If you forget don't worry, about 25% of this film is repeated showing of the same strangulation scene. Got to pad that run time.
 From here Beth is now missing (having been turned) and Steven is looking for her.
 He eventually gets the help of Sarah's father who gives a rather vague and cryptic explanation of what's going on but none of it matters because vampire ghost Beth lours him straight to them and they make short work of Steven and they all live happily ever after.

Final Opinion: This is very much a skippable film.  They had an idea but definitely wasn't clear on how to go about putting it on film resulting in a movie with A.D.D., conflict for the sake of conflict and subplots that are just thrown in just to have something happening that never get addressed or paid off at any point. I give it a Vampire Beauty Rating of 2 out of 5. Only reason it doesn't get one is due to fangs being in at the least the final segments of the film but otherwise the films is mostly people cussing at each other and the same strangeling scene over and over.
