In 1991, producer/director J.R. Bookwalter (“The Dead Next Door”) took his first leap into micro-budget moviemaking with the moody shot-on-video horror/drama “Kingdom of the Vampire.” That experiment proved successful enough to inspire a new generation of no-budget producers to pick up camcorders and do it themselves. 16 years later, Canadian actor/director Brett Kelly (“My Dead Girlfriend”) returned to the source material for this thrilling remake, improving upon the original with impressive Gothic atmosphere, more nuanced performances, and an orchestral music score.
Jeff works the night shift, then comes home to his domineering mother, who has the grisly habit of slaughtering neighborhood children to satisfy her insatiable bloodlust. Reluctant to reveal his true identity he meets Nina, a young woman with a strange attraction for the introvert. But Jeff’s not the only one with eyes for Nina… mother has other plans for her!
