Bucharest, Romania. The not-too-distant future, but an entirely different city. The human population is dwindling. The vampire population, meanwhile, is exploding. Having emerged from the shadows a decade earlier, vampires now walk openly amongst the human population, as a precarious peace exists between the two. A peace made possible by the introduction of a synthetic blood substitute, dispensed by the Romanian government, making traditional vampire feeding, and preying on humans, no longer necessary. But even so, it’s not a peace that everyone is entirely comfortable with…

User Reviews: Hardly surprising that VAMPYRE NATION as it’s known in Britain has a very poor reputation on this website . It’s never a good sign that a film is known by multiple titles and being a SyFy Chanell production this movie was never going to win too many popularity awards . Some people here have criticised it for its lack of originality and you can see where this opinion is coming being part DAYBREAKERS ( Itself a derivative film ) and DISTRICT 9 minus the biting and witty satire

A lack of originality isn’t really the problem with VAMPYRE NATION . Rather than this the film suffers from being a cross-genre film , one of horror and one of police thriller but doing neither source very well . The cops are an uninteresting mix of characters in their late 20s /early 30s who mainly exist to spout uninteresting lines and drive the plot forward . Certainly horror fans will be bitterly disappointed since you could have a plot featuring Interpol investigating drug dealers in Romania and hardly change a scene

Indeed the whole Vampire angle is very much underdeveloped and unexplored which is a shame because I was very intrigued to seeing a society where humans and Vampires find it difficult to coexist with one another . Alas this aspect of the film goes totally unnoticed to the producers
