At the westcoast of the United States Newton Pyles, a reporter from the Chicago Chronicle, is looking for an exciting story for his newspaper.
When he arrives in the town Deliverance, he gets disappointed at first – mayor Holden’s town is just a friendly, sleepy village. But then a horde of bloodsuckers, led by the mighty vampire Billy the Kid (Zack Ward), invades Deliverance. Fear and terror is spreading. The warrior Rayne - half human, half vampire - comes to the town and declares war on Billy and his gang. But the horde of undead is too powerful and Rayne barely manages to escape from death. While searching for help, she meets the Brimstone warrior Pat Garret - a tricky priest - and the perverse criminal Franson. Together they go back to Deliverance...
The second film adaption of the videogame Bloodrayne by Uwe Boll, again has nothing in common with the plot of the videogame.
The storyline is not set in Middle Ages (as the first movie of Bloodryne), but it is the time of the founding fathers. At any time you can see that it is a direct DVD production. This is because of the bad actors and the pathetic look in general.
There is neither an interesting plot nor tension.
The Unrated Director's Cut shows senselessly extended scenes and some further plot extensions but at no point the viewer gets to see more violence. The level of violence of this so called "Unrated" Directors Cut is the same as in the R-Rated version. Actually, there is not much blood at all in this vampire movie. Only the added child murder could justify the word "Unrated".
