Sundown: The Vampire In Retreat Synopsis

The road to Purgatory is paved with good intentions, and Count Mardulak (David Carradine) wouldn’t have it any other way. He’s seeking atonement for centuries of human carnage, which is why he’s instructed Purgatory’s vampire residents to slather on SPF 100 sunblock, pursue daytime activities…and drink only synthetic blood. But some vampires don’t agree with Mardulak — they want the real thing — and if that means wooden bullets flying in a vampire civil war, so be it!

Anthony Hickox (Waxwork) directed the film. It stars David Carradine (Kill Bill Vol. 1 and Vol. 2), Maxwell Caulfield (Grease 2), Morgan Brittany (“Dallas”), Bruce Campbell (The Evil Dead), Jim Metzler, John Ireland, and M. Emmet Walsh.
