Will -a laid-back college student- is bitten by a vampire seductress - part of clan that has been living near the campus and searching for fresh blood. The coven leader, Julian (Tony Todd) has been looking to pass his throne to a worthy successor. In order to pass his coveted title, one of the vampires in his coven must fight and kill a sentry - a member of an elite order of vampire hunters. As the legend holds, sentries have fought vampires for millennia, protecting the world and maintaining a necessary balance between good and evil. But the destiny of vampires and sentries alike are forever changed when Will becomes the center of this eternal war.
