They soon test out Michael and welcome him into their group once they make him drink blood. Now that he has become one of them, the massacre shall begin.
This is one of my top three favorite vampire films, up there with Near Dark and Fright Night. I had seen this movie years ago and felt that it was time to pay it a new visit. The film is still as entertaining as it was years ago. The movie really changes its direction when the vampires decide to kill everyone at a campfire. This scene was much different than the rest of the film, and the final battle was excellent! I give this movie an 8 out of 10.
