Vampiress Review: "Fanged Up"

The Gist: After a run in at the bar he worked at a womanizer is given an overly harsh punishment and sent to a prison where inmates have been disappearing and he must escape to stay alive.

Female Vampire Factor: This is one of those, "There's one super hot female in the film that the main vampire has his eye on and the film holds you in suspense on whether it happens or not even though logically they could have turned her at any point" movies.
But I'll save you some time and tell you she does not turn.  The only female vampires in the film are the lunch lady and the head guard Renfield
Thing is, when they turn it's not a very good look anyway.

Final Opinion: It's an ok horror comedy.  It plays out more like a zombie film than a vampire film.  The comedy isn't forced and stupid so the film is watchable even if it gets a Vampire Beauty Rating of 1 out of 5.  The film does star WWE wrestler Stu "Wade Barrett" Sanders as a Russian prisoner and pretty much the main action guy in the film to the main protagonists comic relief.  Obviously I would have preferred if the main damsel in distress of this film Dr. Katie got turned though.
