Story: Keith and AJ decide to hire a stripper to buy their way into a college fraternity. In order to scope out the strip clubs, they borrow a car from lonely rich student Duncan, who insists on coming with them. The three boys go to a club in a shady part of town and are impressed by stripper Katrina. AJ visits her dressing room to try and convince her to come perform for their college party. Katrina seduces AJ, then kills him with a fatal bite to the neck.
Keith gets concerned about his friend’s delay and with assistance from a waitress named Amaretto, he searches the neighborhood. He and Amaretto get separated while trying to escape from both a psychotic street gang and from vampires. While hiding in a dumpster, Keith finds AJ’s discarded body, but when he calls the police and returns to the club to accuse the owners, the vampires bring AJ back to the club as one of the undead. AJ confesses to Keith that he is vampire and after realizing that Keith will not kill him an unhappy, AJ stakes himself with a piece of broken furniture.
Keith, Amaretto, and Duncan flee the club, but their car is rammed by vehicles driven by vampires. After escaping, Keith and Amaretto realize that Duncan has been turned into a vampire, and they leave him in a burning car. They attempt to escape through the sewers where they discover and burn a nest of vampires, but Amaretto is grabbed and held hostage by Katrina.
When an arrow to the face and a stake made out of a pipe to the chest fail to stop Katrina, Keith kills her by opening a grate, allowing the sunlight to destroy her. But before they can escape to the surface, they are trapped by Katrina’s vampire consort, who is staked from behind by a revived AJ.
AJ sheepishly admits that the stake he tried to kill himself with was actually a piece formica. As Keith and Amaretto climb to the surface and into the daylight, AJ remains in the sewers deciding whether he will go to night school or work a job on a graveyard shift. Sources: Wikipedia; IMDB.
