Melissa Lauren plays a vampire living by the skin of her teeth.
Against all odds, directors Lois Moiré and Max Candy have brought the vampire movie back from the dead. With its intelligent storyline, gorgeous cinematography, authentic costuming, and kink-fueled sex scenes, Ritual truly raises the stakes in the blood-sucker genre.
The female cast is 19 strong and gorgeous. Melissa Lauren will be most recognizable to American audiences. She turns in a powerful performance as a tormented creature of the night in desperate search of rest and redemption.
Moiré Candy balance the film’s involved storytelling with an exciting and frantic pace, making Lauren’s plight — one that spans five centuries — all the more engaging.
Finally, an adult vampire feature with teeth.
