Vampire Clan is a 2002 American drama/horror film directed by John Webb. It received its premiere screening at the 2002 Dances With Films Festival.[1]

Plot[edit]

Based on the horrific true story of the 1996 Vampire Killings in Florida,[2] the film follows the police investigation of five Goth teenagers who claimed to be real-life vampires. They drank each other's blood and embraced the occult. But they were also ordinary, middle-class kids looking for an outlet for their angst and morbid curiosity. Somewhere along their road trip to New Orleans, their fantasy life became all too real. Now the police have two savagely beaten corpses on their hands—parents of the teenaged vampires. What really happened? And how did these normal kids become such monsters?

Reception[edit]

Critical reception for the film has been mixed.[3] JoBlo.com was also mixed, stating that it "had some decent acting and tunes and at times, slick directing, but on the whole, rubbed me the wrong way from every freaking angle. I just couldn’t find an anchor to the story and I truly, and I mean TRULY, despised the characters in it."[4] Variety panned the film, writing "From its ripped-from-the-headlines topic of teen bloodsuckers to the blandness of a low-budgeter shockingly low on shocks, true story of the murder of a family is translated by scripter Aaron Pope into a woefully standard depiction of wayward youth."[5]
