Editorial Reviews

Freddie Frankham (Craig Fairbrass, The Bank Job) is working his way into the East End London big league with the opening of his nightclub, but soon realizes he’s made a grave mistake by building it on the sacred land of Dante Livienko (Billy Murray, Rise Of The Footsoldier): otherwise known as the legendary vampire The Wolf. Dante wants the club, but Freddie isn’t going to give up his turf without a fight, little realizing that he’s taking on a 500-year-old legend of mortal combat in a battle to the death . . .

Dexter Fletcher (Kick-Ass), Steven Berkoff (The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo) and Lisa McAllister (How To Lose Friends & Alienate People) also star in this stylishly gritty horror/gangster mashup from genre specialists Black and Blue Films that tears across the screen to deliver bloodied fight action!

An odd hybrid, mostly gangster, very little vampire, not enough of either to truly satisfy, but the story was simple enough: a `retired' gangster (Craig Fairbrass) opens a club called Inferno. It lives up to its name when a foreign businessman, Dante Livenko (Billy Murray), more or less demands they sell it to him....or else. The "or else" doesn't come until the last third of the movie when it's revealed that the businessman and his coterie are all vampires. Throw in a harbinger (a Van Helsing type of a weirdo), and you've got the makings of a limp horror/action flick. The problem with this movie is that it wants to be both a gangster movie and a vampire movie but it really doesn't succeed with either genre. At best, it's just weird. I'd say it was watchable, I'm not sorry I saw it, but I'm not keeping it for future viewings.

Freddy (Craig Fairbrass) is married into the mob. He is their main strong man. His wife (Lisa McAllister) is attempting to get pregnant. Her brother Eddie Christian (Dexter Fletcher) is the owner of a gentleman's club and runs a fight club which features his brother Dennis.

The Romanian mafia who want the club are extra strong and have a hypnotic effect on people. The two groups enter into a drug deal and soon the Romanians get control of the nightclub. At this point, in the battle of the bad guys, I started rooting for the vampires over the Brits. One crazy man, Kenny Mason (Steven Berkoff), who was a squatter over the site of the club long ago knows the secret of the vampires.

The high action packed vampire film suggested by the DVD cover doesn't materialize until late. This is more of an adult "Twilight" for British mobsters. The acting was good. I enjoyed the "realism" of the script, as a change from more traditional vampire movies. The movie had potential. The soundtrack they used during the credits would have been better during the film. The important scenes were too quick and not memorable. Makes for an okay rental, but nothing more.

F-bomb, no sex, no nudity (scantily clad dancers).

This is a wonderful, bloody, arse kicking movie that pits London gangsters against Romanian vampires. Lots of great throat biting, stake through heart stabbing fights and the exotic dancing girls are a bonus attraction! Some tender moments will surprise you. Backed by an awesome soundtrack, this movie features many of the same actors found in "Rise of the Foot Soldier".

DEAD CERT is another entry into the vampire genre that doesn't offer any new blood. Set in the underground of London, the movie focuses on a nightclub owner who loses his club to a vampire and his minions after his brother-in-law boxer is killed in a boxing match.
DEAD CERT is filmed with little panache and its script is sloppily written, with an ending that makes no sense. There's plenty of gore and nudity but nothing we haven't seen before. Craig Fairbrass, a veteran from the original PRIME SUSPECT, tries gamely but the writers trapped him in an ill-developed character and surround him with equally ineffective support. Ultimately DEAD CERT is a bloodless misfire I wouldn't recommend.
