A vampire horror story with a twist

Emmanuel’s Evie finds herself in serious trouble once she arrives at the spooky mansion. Gradually, she realizes that there is more beyond the surface and that her new family is actually part of the generational bloodline of vampires. Much to Evie’s surprise, she’s basically settled down to be the new bride overseeing a family of vampires (like Bride-zilla but with fangs andvampire).

Beware of the family trap

Emmanuel’s character is lured into the rich trappings of vampire lair because she enters their property under the pretext that she is in fact related to everyone. There’s a palpable sense of discomfort that underscores the entire film as she sees the excessive wealth of her vampire “family” on display. Turns out it’s all a big thing to get Thomas Doherty(Gossip Girl) who plays Walter to marry Emmanuel and continue the nightmarish vampire legacy.
