Dracula 3000: Infinite Darkness
In the year 3000 A.D., the crew of a commercial space freighter happens upon the wreckage of the Demeter, a massive space ship that has been missing for nearly a century. Aware that there’s a substantial bounty being offered for the return of the ship’s cargo, the freighter’s crew begin exploring the Demeter to see what remains, and they discover that the ship’s hold includes a large cache of black coffins. However, the real surprise lurks inside the coffins — a gang of vampires, taking advantage of the darkness of deep space, have taken refuge in the Demeter’s payload, and they soon begin attacking those who have discovered them.
There you have it. It’s a pretty decent lineup, there are some duds on there, but a few awesome films as well. Anyone here tuning into the upcoming marathon?
