By 1933, Prohibition has proven a booming enterprise, where average citizens break the law, hide in the shadows and operate at night. The new world order has even lined the pockets of corrupt cops like Jack Malone. He collects a 'luxury tax' from every bootlegger and scofflaw in the small town he has sworn to protect. While shaking down the newest speakeasy in the local underground, Jack and his men uncover a clan of vampires hell bent on taking over the town. Now Chesterfield, an ancient vampire, and his horde must hide their secret at any cost. The bloody result leaves several bodies and innocent townsfolk taken as lambs to await the slaughter. With nowhere else to turn, Jack joins forces with a busboy and a crazy preacher to save the town and make a final stand against Chesterfield and his vampires.
**Ice-T **is one of my favorite rappers of all time and I also enjoy his acting (even though he's not exactly Tupac Shakur or Will Smith when it comes to those sort of things). So he was the primary reason I wanted to watch it, if he hadn't been in it chances are I'd given it a pass. Anyway, the poster makes it out that he is the lead of the film but he is not, he shows up here and there maybe has about 20 minute screen time in total or something. That is not really uncommon with Ice-T he is one of those guys that is in a no budget film for one scene and still gets his name (often face as well) on the poster so at least he's in this for a number of scenes. Anyhow enough about me obsessing about Ice-T, the actual movie is pretty bland. The acting is definitly not the best, Ice-T is probably the best actor in it, so that should tell you everything really. The plot is decent enough but it's held back by a slow pace (it takes 40 minutes until we 'find out' it's about vampires) and overall lack in quality on most levels, some really long car driving and talking scenes with some of the most obvious greenscreened backgrounds in recent history and CGI that the Asylum would be embarassed about. It could have been remedeed a bit if they made it a bit more tongue in cheek.
