Vampiress Review: "Bloodrunners"

The Gist: Crooked small town cops in the prohibition era 1930's bite off more than they can chew when the speakeasy they try to shake down for bribes ends up being run by vampires.

Female Vampire Factor:  One of the vampires pays a visit to a cat house one evening and takes a bite out of one of the whores Violet (Tammy Jean).
Later in the film as the cops go to the cathouse for comfort she finally turns and drains a cop.  She doesn't last much longer after that as she's staked the next time you see her as the main human characters raid the speakeasy (the vampires come and retrieve her after she turns and takes her back).

The master vampire Chesterfield played by Ice T has a female vampire that he is regularly attached to who's a lounge singer at the speakeasy named Alexandra (Julie Ek).  In most scenes he's training her in how to enjoy blood drinking basically
She doesn't do anything really vampiric and much like the other female vampire is staked shortly after the first time you see her fang out in the last ten minutes. 

Final Opinion: This in reality is about 10 to 15 minutes of actual vampire movie that takes place at the end of a somewhat hard to follow period movie.  I put it in the category of a film that tries to do way too much when the main premise was more than enough to fill an hour and a half.  Instead of telling one story well it tells a bunch of them poorly to where you're introduced to a ton of characters that you have no attachment to whatsoever to really care what happens to them.  I give this a Vampire Beauty Rating of 2 out of 5.  The scene of Violet turning is what you're looking for if you do decide to check it out but the overall enjoyment factor of the film isn't that great.  Everytime it feels like the momentum of the movie is about to go up it shuts itself down with unneeded backstory and side tracking.
