Tagline

*"Pray for dawn."

Plot

Cindy and Lucy (Ami Dolenz) are eighteen and going away to college. As a ritual, they must rid themselves of the "dirt" from their small hometown of Allburg...by swimming in an abandoned church crypt. Both girls strip down to their underwear, jump into the water and begin talking about sex. Then Lucy drops her crucifix...which drifts down to land on the remains of an ancient vampire, Czakyr, apparently waking him up. Czakyr kills Cindy as Lucy looks on in horror. Mark Gardner (Peter DeLuise), a school teacher from a nearby town, gets directed to Allburg. There he tries to help Lucy and her grandmother (Karen Black). Lucy becomes the target of a town-turned-vampire, due to her "virgin blood." She, Mark and an old wino shack up in an abandoned building outside of town; eventually, they are lured back to Allburg by the locals. There (after a giant, glowing cross spears the front of their Toyota), they battle Allburg's entire vampire populace...ultimately taking on the evil Czakyr.
