TaglineThree vampires wander the streets of Melbourne killing, screwing and taking drugs
In the streets of Melbourne, three vampires wander around killing, screwing and taking drugs. They carry out a heist, which involves stealing $3 million which attracts the attention of many psychotics, who chase them through a blood spattered odyssey into the Melbourne underground.
Co-director Jon Hewitt described it as:
A purpose-made, market-driven, crass, exploitation film. It isn't particularly good but, for me, it was really my film school. It's where I taught myself how to make a feature film and made a lot of mistakes on it - but I tried to learn from them. It was a film made in the context of not really being able to get any support for anything I was trying to do, then just going out and making something that I thought would have a back-end market, would be a safe bet, a sort of straight-to-video schlock film.
Filming took six weeks and was very difficult, with one member of the cast being arrested on drug charges. However Hewitt says it proved profitable.
