Chaos engulfs the city as a pair of paranormal investigators are making their nightly rounds on the seedy streets of New York City when they encounter a group of party-hopping girls looking for a warehouse rave – who have also just accidentally opened a portal to hell. What follows is a night of practical effects monster mayhem as the group tries to save themselves, and the entire planet, from a demonic invasion.

Now, thanks to the heroes at Visual Vengeance and Wild Eye Releasing, Vampires and Other Stereotypes is being rescued from analog obscurity and unleashed on Blu-ray and digital platforms for the first time on October 24th.
