two brothers move to a new town and soon fall in with the wrong crowd. nothing unusual about that, except these particular no-mark punks also happen to be blood-swilling vampires. the older brother (jason patric) proves easy prey and is soon a fully paid-up member of the undead. but the younger brother (corey haim) is made of tougher stuff and, along with a couple of friends, decides to make a stand. pretty soon the suburbs start swinging to the sound of teen-vampire combat.
