Are you ready for a chill?

Sisters, Sarah-Belle and Anna-Lee, are hosting a two-week vampire movie marathon at the Voodoo Drive-In, with a whole lot of half-priced vampire themed drinks at the bar.

Belle is frustrated that she can’t do much to help out with the festivities, due to a particularly nasty cold. It’s up to Anna to manage the event on her own until Belle gets better, and she does an amazing job of it until tragedy strikes, and a body is found behind the movie screen.

While Anna assumes that the incident is just a random case of homicide, the drive-in’s resident ghost is inclined to believe there may just be some black magic involved. As the sisters work to catch a killer, they find themselves running all over Sunken Grove, and much of the state of Louisiana in search of some answers…but before the night is through, one of the sister’s might just end up donating some blood to one very hungry murderer.
