When Andy Brooks (Richard Backus) returns home from Vietnam... alive... his parents (John Marley and Lynn Carlin) are overjoyed, as they had been told by the State Department that he was dead. Settling down to civilian life becomes too much for Andy... or is it really Andy? Strange and grotesque murders occur in the town. Murders that only a being of some evil supernatural power could perform. Is Andy now the living dead, feeding off the warm blood of his innocent victims, terrorising even his own sister (Anya Ormsby) in his frantic attempts at staying alive in an environment now totally alien to him?
Low budget movie with very few vampiristic references. The alleged vampire seems to
be more an undead, zombie-like bloodsucker than a real vampire. The film focuses mainly on the horror of a young man's disintegration
from society than on bloodsucking and creature-caused fear. Only at the end of the film they start to disclose about these vampire/
monster characteristics, but the movie then ends very abrupt, and leaves you behind with a fistful of unanswered questions. This
is not a good movie, no no, definitely not!
