LT’S REVIEW: Jessica is a high school student and the lead singer in a band. She’s different from most kids in her class, she's the goth girl with a purple streak in her hair. She has secret feelings for Ronnie, a member in her band, but would never tell him. He was too good and kind to be her type. So instead she would always seek his approval with music and songs she choose to sing. Ronnie has watched Jessica date on and off with different members of the band. He knows he cares about her, but doesn’t want to lose their friendship by making it weird and telling her. Being the somewhat party girl Jessica is, she went to a rave with another guy from school in hopes to get away from her ex-boyfriend. Unfortunately for her, the rave she went to was a set up by the emotion sucking Vampires to feed freely. These Vampires can drink blood, but are told by the master not to. Jessica is taken by a newly turned vamp and after he fed from her emotions he could not help but bite her also, almost sucking her dry.
Ronnie knows something is wrong after reporting Jessica missing to the sheriff, because then the sheriff was nowhere to be found either. Ronnie went off looking for her. He finds her jeep and hears the vampires below ground, while trying to figure out how to save her. Bursting in with a weapon he kills the vampire that hurt Jessica. Just as he is about to go to her, the master walks in and cleans house leaving most for dead and taking Ronnie with “him”. Ronnie struggles and reveals to everyone that the Master is a woman. Something she has kept secret for hundreds of years.
