Rise


Rise
A plotline borrowed from The Crow, set against the modern versions of vampires. A female reporter, investigating the Goth subculture for a story, gets bitten by a vampire, and wakes up in a morgue, now undead. Infuriated, she sets about seeking revenge against those who attacked her, becoming a 'blood hunter'. She is helped in her quest by a cop whose daughter was also bitten by the vamps. Expect lots of blood and gore. The film appears to have gone straight to DVD in the US.
