When her drug-addicted mother becomes the undead’s newest victim, 15-year-old Shawna (Asjha Cooper) vows to compensate for the score. Together with three trusted friends, Shawna hatches a bold plan to infiltrate the vampire’s mansion in the historic French Quarter, destroy its leader, and transform his fangled students back into human form. But killing monsters is no easy task, and soon Shawna and her crew find themselves caught up in a centuries-old conflict between warring vampire factions, each fighting to claim New Orleans as their permanent home.

When a minor stroke affects her ability to care for herself, Judith Albright (Barbara Hershey) moves to the Golden Sun Manor, an assisted living facility with an excellent reputation. But despite the best efforts of the staff and a budding friendship with his older colleague Roland (Bruce Davidson), strange events and nightmarish visions convince Judith that an eerie presence haunts the huge property. When residents mysteriously begin to die, Judith’s desperate warnings are dismissed as a fantasy. Even her devoted grandson Josh (Nicholas Alexander) believes her fears stem from dementia, not demons. Since no one wants to believe her, Judith must either escape the confines of the manor house or fall victim to the evil that lives in it.
