Tagline: The night... has an appetite.

Plot: Driving cross-country to deliver a vintage Mercedes, Sean (Kerr Smith) does the one thing he wasn’t supposed to do—pick up a hitchhiker. From that moment on, his road trip is transformed into a surreal and terrifying nightmare.

Sean's new companion, Nick (Brendan Fehr), is not the laid back, aimless traveler he seems to be. He is a hunter. And his prey are a roving band of forsaken youths who feed upon hapless victims found in the dead of night—in a word, vampires.

When Sean and Nick pick up the dazed and frightened Megan (Izabella Miko), whom the killers had left for dead, she becomes a human lure for the vampires. The stakes are raised when Sean himself is infected. The only cure for them all is to kill the host organism, Kit (Johnathon Schaech), the vicious leader. It's a deadly race against time to escape the fate of their enemies— joining the ranks of the insatiable undead

external linkNot as good as I expected, but it had its moments. Some resemblance the 80s vamp flick, Near Dark. Check this film out if you're looking for something a little more original than the regular teen slasher films, and if you're into vampires. 6/10

external linkIt's Near Dark redux with a touch of The Lost Boys thrown in for good measure. ... we've tread this path before in better movies and as horror fans know most times imitation is not a form of flattery. Watch this one's inspirations instead. 2/4

external linkUltimately, however, the film isn't solid and, like much of the horror cranked out by Sony, is too formulaic to be fun. It borrows from just about every modern vampire film -- from the "Dust 'Til Dawn" series to "Blade" -- without recapturing any of those films' spirits.
