Ever since the excellent Bram Stoker book called Dracula (published in 1897), vampires have grown in (un)popularity in the public imagination. And Hollywood just can't seem to resist these blood-sucking creatures of the night with their strangely erotic appeal that rests on co-mingling sex and death and regeneration into a restless undead immortality.
There have been serious vampire movies, humorous vampire movies, even gay vampire movies. And every so often, someone comes along and makes another -- like John Carpenter now.
In this take on the vampire myth, we have a man on mission from God -- well, actually the Vatican. His name is Jack Crow and he heads up a Vatican-sponsored team of vampire hunters who span the globe seeking out the places where vampires may have left their mark. (Think of it as the X-Files with O-Positive Terrestrials.)
Anyway, Jack's getting tired of his work just when he needs to keep most alert as the hunted vampires are set to turn from prey into hunters themselves.
