An Ancient Evil Awakens With A Deep Hunger
In 1776, a Colonial physician, Benjamin Latham (Kevin Kindlin), is wrongfully accused of practicing sorcery and hanged from the gallows. To prevent his unholy resurrection, his body is desecrated and buried at a crossroad. 200 years later, the condemned doctor's burial site is accidentally unearthed and he rises from the grave as a vampire in modern day Pittsburgh!
Upon discovering his new, unnatural thirst for human blood, Dr. Latham decides to track down his contemporary descendants with the aid of a photographer, Lenora Clayton (Moon Zappa). While Latham only feasts upon the dregs of society to quench his crimson cravings, a deranged copycat killer goes on a rampage that skyrockets the city's terror alert level. With detective Ron Vargo (Tom Savini) hot on his trail, the heroic superhuman vampire confronts the savage serial killer in a fog-shrouded twist ending!
