  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Three hundred years ago genetic experimentation created superior beings that are neither human or monster. These beings co-existed with humankind protecting them from disease while using them for sustenance. The delicate balance between man and vampire is threatend when a renagade vampire unleashes an infuenza epidemic, which sweeps through the human population. (Stacey Pendry)

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 2.31:1 DVD shows good resolution and nicely balanced contrast, but black levels are slightly milky and shadow delineation is unimpressive. The result is an image that can look undefined and lifeless, which is a shame considering how much detail there can be in the picture. Still, there are scenes that look overly soft. While the color palette is constrained, it matches the storytelling well. The picture has real promise
