A vampire woman (Maryam D'abo) wakes up from a hundred and fifty year sleep in Mexico. She had gone there to flee the man who had turned her into a vampire (Ben Cross) but he soon finds her after her resurrection. In her search for blood she ends up going to a blood bank, thinking that's where she can get some food-and when they tell her that it's for deposits, not withdrawals, she faints. She wakes up in a hospital, hooked to an IV, and is befriended by a young hematologist on loan from the United States. He's fascinated with her, particularly with the strange unknown virus he finds her blood. They start spending more and more time together and a relationship develops. Then, in steps her old, crazy boyfriend who insists that it's their nature to kill, that she should embrace the hunt and the need to kill humans. There's a confrontation at the end, where the evil vampire is killed and the doctor ends up becoming one of the undead. Half serious, half spoof, this is an entertaining vampire flick.
