Vegetarian. Valedictorian. Vampire.
Twin sisters Lara (Eilis Cahill) and Helen (Devon Dionne) Baxter couldn't be more different. Lara is a black-haired goth who has a shrine to Anne Rice in her candle-lit room and enjoys solitary walks in the cemetery while blonde Helen is a vegetarian cheerleader who has all the local letter-jacketed testeronies buzzing around her and mocks her sister's overuse of eyeliner. Their brother Raymond (Michael Strelow) is a closet case medical student who still lives at home and collects rubber bands. Rounding out the happy family is Mom (Jo Jo Hristova), an ex-professional skater from a foreign suppressed land close enough to Transylvania to make her immediately suspicious.
The twins' feud reaches a boiling point when Helen makes the moves on Lara's secret crush, prompting the dark sister to cast a voodoo curse on Helen involving a cut up Barbie, some hair strands, and a few cage-free eggs whipped gently with teenage hate and crested with a nice firm cow's heart. The next morning, Helen wakes up with a severe nosebleed, and although a doctor assures the family that it's nothing to worry about, it doesn't take long before the poor girl is dead and Lara is overcome with guilt.
Grieving from their loss, Helen's family members each reach for their own brand of comfort. Mrs. Baxter seeks solace in the arms of the church, Lara becomes more subdued in her rituals, and Raymond sets to work breaking down the oddities in his sister's blood (which he collected during her nosebleed.) There he discovers a virus - one that feeds on red blood cells is sensitive to ultra-violet light. Suddenly there is a knock at the door.
Helen, covered in blood, is standing outside still draped in her body bag. Fortunately for Mom's heart (but unfortunately for Helen's mortician), it's not her blood: apparently, she is now a full-fledged vampire, and she was just a little hungry when she awoke on her slab. The family quickly realizes that they will need to find a steady supply of "sacrifices" to cope with their newfound dilemma, but the problem here is that Helen is still a vegan, and besides... killing innocent people doesn't gel with the family's religious beliefs. So begins a bizarre mixture of horror, dark comedy, and family drama as the Baxters attempt to keep their family together.
