Get ready for a fang’tastic hard rockin’ time as vampire turned rockstar, L’Estat (Stuart Townsend), has risen from his New Orleans crypt after 100 years of sleep. His motive is to resurrect a few old friends….daring them to “Come out come out, wherever you are… See you all in Death Valley.”
John Hobbes (Denzel Washington) is a Philadelphia murder detective who is responsible for supplying pertinent evidence which in turn is bringing justice to a close for serial killer Edgar Reese (Elias Koteas), who is sentenced to die in the gas chamber. The condemned murderer leaves cryptic coded hints behind in riddle form before his last dance with death. The detective soon discovers a diabolical copycat killer. He then begins studying the mysterious clues left behind from his last conversation with Reese, just moments before his execution.

Bigfoot has come to the town of Ellwood City, PA and is causing BIG problems. The creature kills the friend of two locals and they’re on for revenge. They team up with a local exterminator and it’s up to them to take him down, without getting killed in the process and having to endure mockery from the rest of the town.
Harold is a young man from a wealthy background. Dissatisfied with life, his favourite activity is staging fake suicides, much to the dismay of his long-suffering mother, who wishes that he would find a wife. Harold’s other hobbies include watching demolitans and attending random funerals. Also, he drives a hearse. Death-obsessed and lonely, Harold doesn’t really have any friends…well, except for one person, maybe.
