Deep within the heart of Romania, a suppressed evil from the past has come back to haunt the present, and three young beauties have stumbled onto its path...

Michelle and Lillian are two American students who have joined their friend Mara in Romania for their studies of the ancient myths and legends of Transylvania. But Myth turns into reality when the women become the object of desire of Radu, an evil vampire obsessed with making them his consorts.

Radu creates an army of hellish creatures of the night-a Subspecies-to help him carry out his plan. What he underestimates are the powers of his brother Stefan, a good vampire who has fallen in love with Michelle and wants to save them all from the wrath of his brother. At the same time, Stefan discovers that Radu has murdered their father, King Vlad, and is trying to take control of the kingdom. Radu wants to break the centuries-old tradition established by the king so that vampires would only feed on animals rather than humans in order to survive.

In the final showdown of good versus evil, Stefan must fight his wicked brother and the new vampires Radu has created, in his effort to save his loves and the lives of all in the kingdom.

The centuries-old conflict that has plagued the villages of Transylvania explodes into bloodshed. The mad vampire Radu (ANDERS HOVE) becomes obsessed with Michelle (DENICE DUFF), who loves his half-mortal brother Stefan. In his quest to possess Michelle and the sacred relic, the Bloodstone, Radu destroys Stefan as he sleeps.

Michelle steals the Bloodstone and escapes from Radu’s castle. She finds a lair beneath a theatre in Bucharest and stalks the streets in torment, torn between her fading humanity and her growing thirst for blood.

She phones her sister Rebecca (MELANIE SHATNER) and begs her to come to Bucharest to help her. With the aid of Mel Thompson (KEVIN BLAIR) of the US Embassy and Romanian policeman Lt. Marin (ION HAIDUC) she hunts for Michelle in the shadows of the sinister city.

Radu, desperate to regain the Bloodstone, seeks help from his monstrous mother, the ageless sorceress Mummy , who demands the he destroy Michelle before she destroys him. Rebecca becomes Radu’s unwitting pawn in the race to find Michelle and the Bloodstone.

There is no love between the living and the dead!


Radu (ANDERS HOVE) has been destroyed, and Michelle (DENICE DUFF) has been captured by Radu’s vile mother, Mummy. Mummy uses sorcery to bring Radu back to life, then magically transports them back to Castle Vladislas to escape their mortal pursuers: Michelle’s sister Rebecca (MELANIE SHATNER), Mel Thompson of the US Embassy (KEVIN BLAIR), and Lt. Marin of the Bucharest police (ION HAIDUC).

Radu’s obsession with Michelle undermines his power over her. She manipulates him into teaching her the secrets of vampire existence and how to harness her vampiric powers. Once she learns to survive on her own, she intends to destroy him. But Michelle’s plan is thwarted when Rebecca storms the castle with the help of a CIA operative armed with an arsenal of silver bullets.

Driven insane by Mummy’s demands and his weakening hold on Michelle, Radu makes a fatal mistake that leads to a climactic standoff on the high walls of the castle.

"I am God’s most desolate creature….a vampire with a mortal’s heart. I destroyed the one who spawned me and I have sworn to destroy his entire bloodline….the ones who stole me from the warmth of the sun. For centuries I have traveled the Earth, hunting the undead, but the most vicious, most powerful vampire master of all time…ASH, remains. Ash is only vulnerable when he gives into his passions - his love of music and women. He has found both in SOFIA, a beautiful concert pianist. My one chance to strike him down approaches, but must I sacrifice the girl to do it? The pain of my quest intensifies with every breath. My hunger for blood is as strong as my hope for salvation. I can never forget that I too, am a vampire."
