Summary: Vampires have an interesting way of turning up across places. You'll find them in castles, underground, the woods, or in this case, a depraved club. Fair game, perhaps.

History: One day, a couple of crooks find themselves on the run. Their solution? Get across the border and end up taking refuge in a strip club known as the Titty Twister. The only problem is that the whole place is staffed with vampires. Very hungry vampires. And as the sequels revealed, they aren't picky with moving out.

Notable Kills: There is a guitar made from a person. How in the Hell did that happen?!

Final Fate: Pretty much every vamp gets staked, blown up, and/or destroyed by the light. Even the vampire queen Santanico can barely get to the midway point of the first film before a chandelier falls on her chest. Needless to say, vampires may be scary, but killing them is mad fun.

Powers/Abilities: Immortality, great strength, and shapeshifting.

Weakness: Standard vampire weaknesses, though a manual kill requires the destruction of a vampire's heart.

Scariness Factor: 4-These might be the ugliest vampires we've seen. Almost all of them look unique, and most of them look like demons taking ques from bats, rats, and snakes. Also, when they do die, it's never a pretty sight.

Trivia: -A TV series aired on the El Ray network, focusing on an alternative continuity, and placing more emphasis on the Aztec myth that seems to follow the vampires.

-Despite dying in this film, Earl Mcgraw, a bumbling Texan, would go on to cameo in future Quintin Tarantino films, such as "Kill Bill" and "Planet Terror".

Uh...wrong guests? PLEASE?

Really? Again?

Danny Trejo, didn't you die?

Because every trilogy needs a prequel if they run out of ideas.
This isn't your dad's crime movie...

Answer: When you include the vicious undead.

Still hot, if you ask me.

Why we avoid showers in vamp country.

A bad sequel, but not THAT bad...
Think she's hot? Well, she still will be, if you're into reptiles.

Don't see the fangs? You will in a moment.

So, vampires are secret cocaine addicts?

This dentist isn't getting paid enough.
Just say the pun already. Cross-bow. THERE. Enough.

Even the name of the bar will throw you for a loop.

Not so immortal now? Stil, that's disgusting.

Surprised this didn't end in a bat purge.
