Vampiress Review: "Dracula's Last Rites"

The Gist: A man accidentally uncovers a conspiracy regarding a town when the body of his mother in law goes missing.  Eventually finding out that most of the prominent figures in the town are vampires killing people and covering up their deaths.

Female Vampire Factor: One of my biggest pet peeves is when the cover of a film features something that is not in the film.  That is the case here.  The only female vampire in the film is the deceased mother.
 Normally when the vampires in the town bite someone they immediately stake them afterword to ensure they don't come back.
but the vamp that bites old mom gets caught in the act and meets a spiked fence to the chest before that can happen leading to her waking up, now a vampire.
Eventually the other vampires find out and end up offing her but she is the only female vampire that gets any screen time.  In the "does she or doesn't she" the attractive female lead does get bitten.
It's implied that she does turn as the end credits state her body is never found but you never see her as a vampire.

Final Opinion: A decent horror film but can't give it a Vampire Beauty Rating above 1 out of 5.  The movie definitely teases by pretty much biting every attractive female in it but there is never a pay off.
