On a night when their quiet suburban neighbourhood is plagued by mysterious blackouts. The tight knit Armstrong clan presses on with its plans to celebrate the birthday of the head of their family... Curtis Armstrong. They have no idea of how truely cursed the family reunion will be. As the family tensely awaits his return, Curtis is out in the chaos of the blacked out city on a mission to evict squatters from one of his downtown properties. What he finds in that crumbling building are no ordinary squatters. Instead he comes face to face with Old World horror intent on spreading its evil in the New World. When Curtis returns to his family, he is a changed man - infected with an ancient plague that corrupts the soul, even as it transforms the flesh. As family blood is spilled and shared, the Armstrong home soon becomes a den of vampires. As the neighbourhood becomes overrun by the bloodthirsty beasts, two sets of late arrivals walk in unaware of the developing situation.... Can they survive? And what does survival mean in a hell where souls are as much a delicacy as blood?
