"A military experiment that begins with a bunch of bats in the jungles of Bolivia and ends with an explosion at a research facility in Colorado goes terribly wrong. Twelve criminals from death row are turned into vampires by government scientists in an attempt to harness their supernatural capabilities for the Army.

"The 13th test subject is a young girl named Amy who received the right dose of the formula, and as a result is bionic, telepathic, and the key to the vampires’ passage out of the world. But before she can get to them, they break free and devour almost all the life on the planet." —Michelle Z. from In the Stacks.tv
