‘John Carpenter’s Vampires’ Plot
Jack Crow (James Woods) has only had one goal in life since vampires killed his parents: driving stakes through the hearts of bloodsuckers. Crow prowls the New Mexico desert in search of undead strongholds to destroy with the aid of the Catholic Church and his team of combat-proven vampire killers. But he encounters his match when he encounters Jan Valek (Thomas Ian Griffith), a powerful vampire kingpin, at a rural hotel..
In order to prevent vampires from obtaining an old Catholic relic that would enable them to walk in the sunlight, a vengeful vampire slayer must get it after recovering from an ambush that resulted in the death of his whole team.
The Vatican asks a group of vampire hunters to track down a master vampire and his gang of vampires who are mutilating and devouring humanity. The Vatican has an agenda of their own regarding preventing a centuries-old cross from falling into the hands of the master vampire, while the leader of the vampire hunter does the killing and follows orders from the Vatican because his parents were killed by vampires and he was raised by the Church.
